## Filtering/duplicates/count words - not sure where this would sit in Power BI topics

I have a spreadsheet with a list of 2 courses, learners names and completion status.

I have made one table to show learners incomplete in one course.

I have made another table to show learners incomplete on the other course.

I want a table to show learners who are incomplete on both courses.

I really don't know how to do this.

Hi @Whibley92 ,
As you said, there can only be two arguments after the filter, so if you want to make a judgment based on two conditions, then you can use the logical operator || to splice the two arguments together.

Measure

``````Incomplete Both Courses =
COUNTROWS(
FILTER(
SUMMARIZE(
FILTER(
'Table',
'Table'[Status] = "Incomplete" || 'Table'[Status] = "Pending"
),
'Table'[Learner number],
"Incomplete Count",
COUNT('Table'[Status])
),
[Incomplete Count] = 2
)
)``````

Final output

Hi @Whibley92 ,
Here some steps that I want to share, you can check them if they suitable for your requirement.
Here is my test data:

Course 1 unfinished

Course 2 unfinished

1.Ensure that the names of the trainees are related between the two tables

2.Create a measure

``````Incomplete Both Courses =
CALCULATE(
COUNTROWS('Course 1 unfinished'),
FILTER('Course 1 unfinished',
'Course 1 unfinished'[Status] = "Incomplete" && RELATED('Course 2 unfinished'[Status]) = "Incomplete"
)
)``````

3.Apply measure as filter of the table

4.Final output

Is there a way to do this if all the results were in one table? Learner number Course title Status #1 Course 1 Complete #2 Course 1 Incomplete #3 Course 1 Complete #4 Course 1 Complete #5 Course 1 Complete #6 Course 1 Complete #1 Course 2 Incomplete #2 Course 2 Incomplete #3 Course 2 Complete #4 Course 2 Incomplete #5 Course 2 Incomplete #6 Course 2 Complete

This works great thank you.

How would I add more than one status types to count - I forgot we also have a Pending which needs to be included. I tried "Incomplete", "Pending" but it says - Too many arguments were passed to the FILTER function. The maximum argument count for the function is 2.

Would I just add a new column and mark Pending as Incomplete?

possibly easy enough but I tried amending your formula to show only those who have completed both courses, but its bringing up blank:

Complete Both Courses =
COUNTROWS(
FILTER(
SUMMARIZE(
FILTER(
'Learning Item Status report',
'Learning Item Status report'[Status Overall] = "Complete"
),
'Learning Item Status report'[Person Number],
"Complete Count",
COUNT('Learning Item Status report'[Status Overall])
),
[Complete Count] = 2
)
)

Hi @Whibley92

If you are using Power Query
Please Append the two table as NEW table
Then keep only Duplicate rows in Learner Names. This will be third table with Name both course incomplete.

Let me know if that works for you

@Whibley92 , Try using below method

Result Measure = IF ( COUNTROWS ( FILTER ( YourTableName, [Group 2] = "X" ) ) > 0, "Red", "Green" )
