Sum a column with duplicates

How many apples are there at each Farm (with DAX)

 

FarmBarrelApples  Taster   Vote
North Farm     Green Barrel     150JohnSweet   
North FarmGreen Barrel150SueSweet
North FarmRed Barrel150JohnBitter
South FarmBlue Barrel200JohnSweet

South FarmRed Barrel50CarolBitter

 

We want to create a measure which would sum the quantity of any Farm or any Barrel?

Like the Apple Measure shown below for example ...

Hi, @roberts_stats 

You can consider add a summarized table to remove the duplicates records and keep the valid record columns.

Calculated Table:

Table 2 = SUMMARIZE('Table','Table'[Farm],'Table'[Barrel],'Table'[Apples])

Then you can perform calculations based on this summary table.

From the summary table you can easily tell how many apples are there at each Farm.

Hi,

I am going to give a few pointers which should help you to solve this issue:

You can use CALCULATE to modify filter context of a measure/function by using functions such as ALL, REMOVEFILTERS, ALLEXCEPT.  E.g. ALL(Table[column]) will remove filters affecting that column.


The use case you are describing is common and I recommend checking these resources to understand more:

Introducing CALCULATE in DAX - SQLBI
CALCULATE function (DAX) - DAX | Microsoft Learn
Filter context in DAX - SQLBI

I believe you can create your measure after reading these.


I hope this post helps to solve your issue and if it does consider accepting it as a solution and giving the post a thumbs up!

Hi @ValtteriN 

 

Thanks your answer, I'm going to edit and clarify my question a little because I don't believe those links resolve this question necessarily.

We want to create a measure which would sum the quantity of any Farm or any Barrel, not just filtering the sum to find one Barrel or one Farm.
