Calculate if a column contains some text for each occurrence of a unique value

Hello,

 

I'm trying to come up with a formula for the following scenario. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

 

For a given Primary Key in column D ("R_PK1"), IF the Primary Key is present EXACTLY 2 times in the table, AND if column B equals "BBB" in any of the 2 rows for that Primary Key, then give me "some text" else "some other text".

 

Below is the sample data. Thank you for your help!

 

Code:Category:Type:R_PK1:Output column:
abcAAAShared1111111some text
xyzBBBShared1111111some text
cdbAAAShared2222222some other text
wsdBBBShared2222222some other text
gjkFFFShared2222222some other text

Hi,

This calculated column formula works

Column = if(and(CALCULATE(COUNTROWS(Data),FILTER(Data,Data[R_PK1]=EARLIER(Data[R_PK1])))=2,CALCULATE(COUNTROWS(Data),FILTER(Data,Data[R_PK1]=EARLIER(Data[R_PK1])&&Data[Category]="BBB"))>=1),"Some Text","Some other text")

Hope this helps.

Hi  @tomekm ,

Here are the steps you can follow:

1. Create calculated column.

Output column =
var _count=COUNTX(FILTER(ALL('Table'),'Table'[R_PK1:]=EARLIER('Table'[R_PK1:])),[R_PK1:])
var _category=SELECTCOLUMNS(FILTER(ALL('Table'),[R_PK1:]=EARLIER('Table'[R_PK1:])),"1",'Table'[Category:])
return
IF(
    _count=2&&"BBB" in _category,"Some Text","Some other text")

2. Result:

Hi @tomekm 

Please try this, (change table name and col name as per quirement)
= VAR _count2 = DISTINCTCOUNT('Table'[R_PK1])
RESULT
SWITCH(
TRUE(),
_count2 = 2 && 'Table'[Category] = "BBB", "Some Test",
"Some Other Test")


If not solved, please keep posted (paste from excel, your data is broken when I try to use)

Thank you for the quick response. Unfortunately this formula didn't work for me. I'm pasting the data in tabular format here:

 

Code:Category:Type:R_PK1:Output column:
abcAAAShared1111111some text
xyzBBBShared1111111some text
