## Create a summary table using DAX

Hi,

I have a requirement to create a summary table based on three other tables.

Table1:

Table2:

Table3:

Expected Outut:
Create a summary table with the counts from each table as below:

I have also attached a sample pbix file here.

Thank you.

Hi @POSPOS ,

The calculated table is static, here's the formula:

``````Table 2 = var _table={"Stage1","Stage2","Stage3"}

If you want the dynamic counting result, you should create a table with three stages. And put a measure into the table visual. Because measures are dynamic.

Here're the steps.

1.Table with three stages. You can also create it by entering data.

2.Create a measure.

``Measure = SWITCH(MAX('Table 3'[Value]),"Stage1",[Stage1_Count],"Stage2",[Stage2_Count],"Stage3",[Stage3_Count])``

3.Here's the result.

Hi @POSPOS

I have a solution that may or may not work for your exact use case.

First I create a blank table with two columns, "Steps" and "Sum of Count". No rows. I called this table "Solution Table".

Then I create a DAX Table as below:

``````Solution =

UNION('Solution Table',
ROW(
"Steps", "Stage1"
,"Sum of Count", Stage1[Stage1_Count]
),
ROW(
"Steps", "Stage2"
,"Sum of Count", Stage2[Stage2_Count]
),
ROW(
"Steps", "Stage3"
,"Sum of Count", Stage3[Stage3_Count]
)
)``````

And the result of this "Solution" will match the result your expected outcome. However, if you start intrducing filters in your report that affect the 3 original measures in the 3 Stage tables, then the summary table will not update automatically. I am afraid I do not have a solution where the summary table would be affected by slicers or filters dynamically.
I hope this helps!

@dk_dk  - Thank you for the response. But we do have other visuals/slicers in the report and the users would expect the visuals to be interactive.
Eg: Selecting a protocol in the slicer and the "Solution" table should be filtered out to see in which step that protocol is in.
Trying to find out if we have any solution to have the visual interactive.
