Concatenatex related distinct values

Hello everyone.

I have a measure in a table that gets the concatenation of values in a different table:

 

ListProductTypes = CONCATENATEX(Product;Product[ProductType];", ")

 

Work perfectly, but since I have many related Products (often with the same ProductType), I get an awful repetition of same values

 

e.c. Type1, Type1, Type2, Type2....

 

I only need to get (in this case) the distinct Type1, Type2

 

therefore i need something like ListProductTypes = CONCATENATEX(Product; DISTINCT ( Product[ProductType] ) ;", ")

 

but it doesn't work...

help would be appreciated

Try chnaging the location of DISTINCT

 

ListProductTypes = CONCATENATEX(DISTINCT(Product);Product[ProductType]  ;", ")

 

 

or

 

ListProductTypes = CONCATENATEX(VALUES(Product);Product[ProductType]  ;", ")

Hi everyone,

I have a table:

 

Col1           ,Col2


a 1
b 2
c 3
a 4
b 5
c 6
a 7
b 8
c 9
d 10
e null
f null
g null


i want to concatenate the column Col2 to get:

a 1,4,7
b 2,5,8
c 3,6,9
d 4,7,10
e
f
g

Here is the formula i used: «CONCATENATEX(Merge1,Merge1[Col2],"; ")»

The result i get is:

a 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,,,
b 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,,,
c 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,,,
d 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,,,
e 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,,,
f 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,,,
g 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,,,

i'm not sure if i missed something

Thank you for your help,

Hi,

 

Sorround it with CALCULATE, it should works.

CALCULATE(CONCATENATEX(Merge1,Merge1[Col2],"; "))
