Filter for data via two columns - return items matching multiple values

 

Hi There,

I am looking for a filter measure or column syntax on a large table with users and skills where I would need to select/filter a user that has multiple skills and then I want to count a number value in another column.

Here is an example:

In the table example below I would like to get all users that can whistle and jump and sum up the hours for the matching ones.

 

UserhoursSkill
user12whistle
user24jump
user13jump
user26eat
user37jump

 

So following the logic the result would be just user1 that can jump and whistle and the hours is 2+3 

user15

 

My attempts all failed so far, its easy to do this when checking for one or the other skill but getting only the ones that have both seems to quite difficult. Any ideas from the experts?

If you insert a slicer for Skill and select the skills the following measure should give you the numbers by users in a visual. 

Measure = sum( table[hours])

If you need a measure with the filters then 

Total Hours = 

CALCULATE(
    SUM(Table[hours]),
    Table[Skill] IN {"jump", "whistle"}
)

You can create a measure with below code:-

 

 

Skill_Hour_Sum =
VAR current_selected_user =
    MAX ( skills[User] )
VAR skills_count =
    CALCULATE (
        DISTINCTCOUNT ( skills[Skill] ),
        FILTER (
            skills,
            AND (
                skills[User] = current_selected_user,
                OR ( skills[Skill] = "jump", skills[Skill] = "whistle" )
            )
        )
    )
RETURN
    IF (
        skills_count >= 2,
        SUMX ( DISTINCT ( skills[hours] ), skills[hours] ),
        BLANK ()
    )
