Calculate not showing total distinct count

Hello ,

i have the following formula:

Disctinct Clubs := calculate (DISTINCTCOUNT('Inscrições'[ID CLUBE UNICO]);filter('Inscrições';
CONTAINS(VALUES('Inscrições');'Inscrições'[ID TIPO FUTEBOL];2) &&
NOT(CONTAINS(VALUES('Inscrições');'Inscrições'[ID TIPO FUTEBOL];1)) &&
NOT(CONTAINS(VALUES('Inscrições');'Inscrições'[ID TIPO FUTEBOL];3)) &&
NOT(CONTAINS(VALUES('Inscrições');'Inscrições'[ID TIPO FUTEBOL];4)) &&
NOT(CONTAINS(VALUES('Inscrições');'Inscrições'[ID TIPO FUTEBOL];5)) &&
NOT(CONTAINS(VALUES('Inscrições');'Inscrições'[ID TIPO FUTEBOL];6)) =TRUE))

Showing the result on a power BI card it is showing "BLANK()" , but when i insert a dimension, it is showing values (with no total)

My question is:

Why it is not showing the total on both visualizations ?

Hope you guys can help me

It is workable if you arrange your types as 1, 2, 4, 8, 16, 32... but... ya, that's pretty geeky 🙂  Ya... should have seen in your huge FILTER() statement about the 6 types.

Okay, let's talk about why your solution isn't working.

Because you have Clubs on rows, each of those rows is evaluating your expression for just that 1 club.  And that is doing what you expect (there is a 2, but no other numbers).    [though, it is probably easier to do... a HASONEVALUE('Inscrições'[ID TIPO FUTEBOL]) and VALUES('Inscrições'[ID TIPO FUTEBOL]) = 2) ... maybe filtered for positive types... rather than the big condition you hae now].

Anyway, when you get to the grand total... you are NOT looking at just 1 club, you are looking at all clubs... and if you look at the entire set, it just doesn't match your criteria.

I suspect this is an easy way to resolve your issue for the grand total:

FixedCount := SUMX( VALUES ('Inscrições'[ID CLUB] ); [Disctinct Clubs])

@vani I replicate your example with other info and this is that i got.

Why don't you try to achieve it first without filters? And also check if category label in format is on.

Hello @jpereztang,

My formula is retrieving " right " results, but i don´t know why is not presenting the  sum value of distinct clubs when i put the measure on a (example ) " card " visualization. I would be greatful if anyone has a workaroud. The thing is to know on a column if a club has [ID CLUBE FUTEBOL] = 2  but it cant have [ID CLUBE FUTEBOL] = 1. Because a club could have more than 1 type of soccer !

hi @vani

More simple is not this:

Disctinct Clubs := calculate (DISTINCTCOUNT('Inscrições'[ID CLUBE UNICO]);filter('Inscrições';
'Inscrições'[ID TIPO FUTEBOL]=2)

Hello @Vvelarde ... If i have only have condition 'Inscrições'[ID TIPO FUTEBOL]=2, then , i´m just filtering the clubs that have that type of soccer and not the clubs that only have that type of soccer, because the clubs could have more than on type of soccer.

Example

[ID CLUB];[ID TIPO FUTEBOL]

245;-1
245;-2
245;2
345;-1
345;-2
345;1

445;-1
445;-2
445;1
445;2

RED - Just indoor soccer type club ( because have only the type 2, the other 2 are always present )
GREEN - Just soccer type club

BLUE - both soccer types club

I think this is a situation where the "shape" of your data is kind of hurting you.  You would like columns "Has Indoor" and "Has Outdoor" on a table that had just 1 unique row per club.

Anyway, here is my crazy idea:

```Club Types := CALCULATE( SUM('Inscrições'[ID CLUB];
FILTER (ALL('Inscrições'); 'Inscrições'[ID TIPO FUTEBOL] > 0)

Indoor Only =
VAR MyClub = 'Inscrições'[ID CLUB]
RETURN
IF ( CALCULATE ( [Club Types]; 'Inscrições'[ID CLUB] = MyClub) = 1; "Indoor Only";
CALCULATE ( [Club Types]; 'Inscrições'[ID CLUB] = MyClub) = 2; "Outdoor Only";
"Both"```

A measure that adds the types together and uses that sum (per Club) to determine the types available.  This will only work for... certain allocations of "type" though -- if you have a type 3... this won't work.

@Anonymous many thanks ! For now it resolves my issue.

hi @vani

My solution to this was:

DistinctClub = CALCULATE(DISTINCTCOUNT('Futebol-Club'[IDCLUB]);FILTER('Futebol-Club';COUNT('Futebol-Club'[IDCLUB])=1);FILTER('Futebol-Club';'Futebol-Club'[ID TIPO FUTBOL]=2))

GrandTotal = SUMX( VALUES ('Futebol-Club'[IDCLUB]);[DistinctClub])

Medida = If(HASONEVALUE('Futebol-Club'[IDCLUB]);[DistinctClub];[GrandTotal])

Hello @Vvelarde, your solution won't work .. if you use " filter " with 'Inscrições'[ID TIPO FUTEBOL])=2, dax will show you " A function 'FILTER' has been used in a True/False expression that is used as a table filter expression. This is not allowed." .

hi @vani

In test environment is work maybe you have different model in your data.

Anyway, i hope you can solve this issue. 😃
