Add 1 to denominator if cell is not null

Hello Everybody,

 

I am working with a likert scale question (Strongly Agree = 5 ... Strongly Disagree = 1) for 9 different questions.  The goal is to take the average score for each question asked after I quantify each response.  However, there are some questions that do not have a response.  So, it is possible someone has been surveyed 4 times but one question could only have 2 responses, so I would only want to divide that specific metric question by 2 instead of 4.  These unanswered questions have null in the cells.  Any help on a formula for this would be much appreciated.

 

Eventually, I will want to sum up all of the responses divided by the times each question was answered to give us a true avg for each employee's performance.

1 ACCEPTED SOLUTION

Just for anybody seeing this, I used a variable and if statements to find the solution and it has worked correctly so far!

 

Denominator Count =
VAR Denom = 0

 

Return

IF(NOT(ISBLANK(Timely)), Denom +1, Denom + 0) + IF(NOT(ISBLANK(Trustworthy)), Denom + 1, Denom + 0) ....

Hi @Ryanb2412 ,

 

You could add a filter to ignore blank values.

FILTER('Table', 'Table'[Value]<> BLANK())

You could provide more information here.

DAX is easy, CALCULATE makes DAX hard...

@Greg_Deckler 

Sorry, hopefully this is more clear.

 

Below, I have multiple rep surveys for one rep.  They are scored on 4 metrics below.  I want to find their total avg score, making sure that "null" values are not included in the denominator.

 

Ex:

Rep             

Survey Date     Timely  Trustworthy  Sales  Demos    
John Doe1/1/20554null  
John Doe2/1/2035null3  
John Doe3/1/20432null  

 

The desired total avg would be 3.78.  This is calculated by adding all values to = 34 and dividing it by only the 9 cells containing values.  I need to find a measure to create that will omit nulls from any denominator.

 

Just for anybody seeing this, I used a variable and if statements to find the solution and it has worked correctly so far!

 

Denominator Count =
VAR Denom = 0

 

Return

IF(NOT(ISBLANK(Timely)), Denom +1, Denom + 0) + IF(NOT(ISBLANK(Trustworthy)), Denom + 1, Denom + 0) ....
