Filter duplicate values with more arguments

Hi,

I need to add another filter argument in my dax formular. 

Right now, I have the following:

Duplicate Cust. Ref = CALCULATE(

                                COUNT(

                                    'ABC'[DEF]

                                ),

                                Filter(

                                    'ABC',

                                    'ABC'[DEF]=EARLIER('ABC'[DEF)

                                )

)


Now I need to include also the column "ABC[XYZ]" as a second argument to filter. So I only need the count when both arguments are true.

 

Any help how I can achieve this?

Thanks

Alexander

Hi @oldrunner ,

 

The EARLIER function is usually used in calculated columns, please use the MAX or SELECTEDVALUE function in the measure, like this:

 

Duplicate Cust. Ref = 
CALCULATE ( 
    COUNT ( 'ABC'[DEF] ),
    Filter ( 'ABC', 'ABC'[DEF] = MAX ( 'ABC'[DEF] ) )
)

I get the message that "earlier" functions cannot be nested. So, unfortunately, this did not work.
Maybe my question was not quite correct. I need to filter on two different columns and it should only count when both (or more) arguments are true. So for example the customer name and the purchase order number (as different customers might have the same purchase order number).
Thanks

@oldrunner , Check the solution by @darshaningale . If that do not work try

 

Duplicate Cust. Ref = CALCULATE(
COUNT(
'ABC'[DEF]
),
Filter(
'ABC',
'ABC'[DEF]=EARLIER('ABC'[DEF)
&& ABC[XYZ] = earlier(ABC[XYZ])
)

)

                                ),

                                Filter(

                                    'ABC',

                                    'ABC'[DEF]=EARLIER('ABC'[DEF) && ABC[XYZ] ='something'

                                )

)
