Filter Column based on two string options

Hello everyone,

 

for one string filter the following works: 

NewColumn = CALCULATE(DISTINCTCOUNT(table[ID]),FILTER(table,CONTAINSSTRING(table[OPTIONS],"String01")))
 
However for two strings I tried this (but doesn't work):
NewColumn = CALCULATE(DISTINCTCOUNT(table[ID]),FILTER(table,CONTAINSSTRING(table[OPTIONS],"String01"+"String02))))
 
Kind regards

Hii,

Does this work?

NewColumn = CALCULATE(DISTINCTCOUNT(table[ID]),FILTER(table,CONTAINSSTRING(table[OPTIONS],"String01")||CONTAINSSTRING(table[OPTIONS],"String02")))

Hope this helps.

Hi @KPME 

 

For the second column use AND (&&), OR (||) operator insted of "+" sign based on your requirement
