Filter Power BI Dax based on condition

Hi All - 

 

I am trying to filter a table base on the following condition (Status=New, SME group is not populated (blank)) but it came back with error " A single value for column [] in table [] can not be determined. This can happen when a measure formula rfers to column that contain many values without specifying aggreation..." I am new with this and any help are greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance!

Hi, @HugoTran 

 

filtercondition =

If( min(tablename[status])="new" || min(tablename[sme group assigned])<>blank(),"filter","not filter")

hi, @HugoTran 

when you use measure you need aggegation functions like sum(), min(), max(),....

 

try like below

 

filtercondition =
 min(tablename[status])="new" || min(tablename[sme group assigned])<>blank(),"filter","not filter")

Thanks for the help. When I update the agg function to MIN, I got error "Too many arguemtns were passed to the FIRSTNONBLANK funciton. The maximum argument count for the function is 2."

@Dangar332  I'm pretty sure you saw that I was already helping here, and stepped on my work none the less.

@bchager6 Definitely appreciated for your help. Thank you! 

Hi, @bchager6 

 

Listen brother I am just helping @HugoTran it's not a competition.

Got it. Thanks a bunch.

correction - MIN function*

@HugoTran  You'll need to use an aggregation function in those cases (like MAX), or you can try using the FIRSTNONBLANK function with your example.

 

Thank you for the quick reply. when I added the MAX aggr function, I get the following error.

@HugoTran  I edited my initial response. Try FIRSTNONBLANK with your example.

Tried FIRSTNONBLANK and get another error "Too many arguemtns were passed to the FIRSTNONBLANK funciton. The maximum argument count for the function is 2."
