Trying to understand the outcome from my DAX code using Min & Max (especially for character)

I am sharing my Pbix file here.


I am trying to understand the logic here:

I got the final value as 0, and I am trying to understand how I got it.

If you look at the bottom formula, basically if the second argument meets the criteria, the outcome is 0




This is data:



How do I get the 0 when:


min(Step) = 1     && 

min(Consent) is not "Refused"  &&

min(ConsentDate) is not blank




max(Step) = 2     && 

max(Consent) is not "Refused"  &&

max(ConsentDate) is not blank


Null is considered blank, correct? no?

@JustinDoh1 , Try like


Refused 0817 = 
     Sumx (SUMMARIZE( Table1, Table1[Consent], Table1[ConsentDate],"_1",  
                            CALCULATE( DISTINCTCOUNT( Table1[ClientID] ),
                                Table1[Consent] = "Refused"  &&
                                Table1[step] = 1 // && 
                                //vImmunization < vConsent
                            , [_1]) 

@amitchandak Thanks for your help. I am trying to understand the code.  What do "_1" and [_1] do?
