letter count

Dear experts, I can't solve the letter count and then calculate their respective percentages of the total:

example:
Column 1
a
a
b
c
c
c

I need through DAX to be able to count to get the following result:
a: 2
b:1
c:3

and later:
a: 33%
b:17%
c: 50%

please your help!

Hi @JDU ,

 

try this to get count:

count = CALCULATE(COUNTA('Table'[Column 1]),ALLEXCEPT('Table','Table'[Column 1]))

and to get %:

% = 'Table'[count] / COUNTROWS('Table')

You can also combine two formulas into 1.

Regards,

Matej

 

 

First of all thank you very much for your reply @MatejZukovic 

 

The first equation worked very well, the formula responds well, but the second equation does not, it brings me as a result 100% for each of the characters to count.

 

Where do you think the mistake might be?

 

Thanks again!

Hi @JDU ,

 

previous approach would work when you create column in your backend table.

If you'd like to do the calculation as a measure, try this:

% = [count]/CALCULATE(COUNTA('Table'[Column 1]), ALL('Table'[Column 1]))
