Creating a measure with IF statement

Hi everyone,

 

I have a dataset that looks like this

I have a list of companies where their "Status of deal" changes over time. What I want to create is this:

 

I want to create a measure whereby if a company has ever been active, return "Yes", else, return "No". I want to then display this in a card. I can't figure out a way to do this yet. I tried creating a conditional column but it returns the "Yes" or "No" by column, and not by Company Name. 

 

Would appreciate any input. 

 

Thanks

Add a new column like

Is Active = 

var cnt =countx(filter(table,table[company]=earlier(table[company]) && (table[company]="Active" Or ealier(table[company]="Active"))),table[company])

return
if(cnt>0,"Yes","No")

@rjsidek Well in the proper data model you would have a Company table with distinct company names and that table would be related to the Company History table (the one you have now). Then it would be simple to create a new column in the Company table using COUNTROWS(FILTER...

Can you elaborate a bit on how I would be able to achieve this?
