Distinct ID count based on other columns

Hello,

I have a table that contains an ID column that can be repeated for each step of an approval process. My table follows this structure:

ID      ApprovalStep   ApprovalName   Trigger   Mi      Type    
1110.1DanielTrueTrueCot
1110.2EricTrueTrueCot
1111.0LisaTrueTrueCot
2221.0JohnTrueTrueCot
2221.1HelenaTrueTrueCot
2221.2SoshanaTrueTrueCot
3330.1RobenFalseTrueCot
3332.1StuartFalseTrueCot
3332.2KianaFalseTrueCot
4440.2LevinTrueFalseCot
5550.1HannaTrueTrueXX
6661.1DanielTrueTrueCot


I want to create a measure that counts how many distinct IDs DO NOT have any ApprovalStep that start with "0.", Trigger = "True", Mi = "True" and Type = "Cot".
Based on the table above, the measure should bring the value: 2. Because only IDs 222 and 666 meet all the counting conditions.


How can I create this measure?

Hi @nok ,

 

Thanks for the reply from @AmiraBedh .

 

Please try:

 

Create a measure:

Distinct ID Count = 
VAR _vtable1 =
    FILTER (
        ALLSELECTED ( 'Table' ),
        'Table'[Trigger] = TRUE ()
            && 'Table'[Mi] = TRUE ()
            && 'Table'[Type] = "Cot"
    )
RETURN
    COUNTROWS (
        FILTER (
            SUMMARIZE (
                _vtable1,
                'Table'[ID],
                "minx", MINX ( FILTER ( _vtable1, [ID] = EARLIER ( 'Table'[ID] ) ), [ApprovalStep] )
            ),
            [minx] >= 1
        )
    )

First, create a calculated column to identify rows that meet the condition ApprovalStep starts with "0.", Trigger = "True", Mi = "True", and Type = "Cot" :

 

 

IsMatch = 

IF (

    LEFT ( 'Table'[ApprovalStep], 2 ) = "0." && 

    'Table'[Trigger] = TRUE() && 

    'Table'[Mi] = TRUE() && 

    'Table'[Type] = "Cot",

    1,

    0

)

 

Then, create a measure that counts the distinct IDs which do not have any row where IsMatch is 1.

 

DistinctIDCount = 

VAR IDsWithCondition =

    CALCULATETABLE (

        VALUES ( 'Table'[ID] ),

        'Table'[IsMatch] = 1

    )

RETURN

    CALCULATE (

        DISTINCTCOUNT ( 'Table'[ID] ),

        NOT 'Table'[ID] IN IDsWithCondition

    )
