Help needed for Measure

Assuming data as follows:

 

COLA   COLB                COLC

AA       04/01/2018          1

AA       04/02/2018          0

AA       04/03/2019          1

BB       04/01/2019           1

BB       04/02/2018           1

BB       04/03/2019           1

BB       04/04/2019           0

CC      04/01/2019           1

CC      04/02/2019           0

CC      04/02/2019           1

 

I need a measure which will count the distinct dates in COLB within COLA where COLC = 1 and the year(COLB) = YEAR(MAX(COLB)).

 

Using the data above, the results should be  3. 

COLA   COLB                COLC

AA       04/03/2019          1

BB       04/01/2019          1

CC      04/02/2019           1

 

Thanks.

Hi @Anonymous ,

 

Just modify measure as below:

 

Measure = 
CALCULATE(DISTINCTCOUNT('Table'[COLA]),FILTER(ALLEXCEPT('Table','Table'[COLB]),YEAR(SELECTEDVALUE('Table'[COLB]))=MAXX(ALL('Table'),YEAR('Table'[COLB]))&&'Table'[COLC]=1))+0

 

And you will see:

Hi @Anonymous ,

 

You need a measure as below:

 

MesureValue = 
var t = ALLSELECTED('Table')
return
SUMX (
    'Table',
    VAR a = [COLA]
    RETURN
        IF (
            'Table'[COLC] = 1
                && NOT (
                    [COLB]
                        IN CALCULATETABLE (
                            DISTINCT ( 'Table'[COLB] ),
                            FILTER (
                                t,
                                var a2 = 'Table'[COLA]
                                var maxyear = YEAR (
                                            CALCULATE (
                                                MAX ( 'Table'[COLB] ),
                                                FILTER (t, 'Table'[COLA] = a2 )
                                            )
                                        )
                                return
                                'Table'[COLA] < a
                                    && 'Table'[COLC] = 1
                                    && YEAR ( 'Table'[COLB] )
                                        = maxyear
                            )
                        )
                )
                && YEAR ( [COLB] )
                    = YEAR (
                        CALCULATE (
                            MAX ( 'Table'[COLB] ),
                            FILTER ( t, 'Table'[COLA] = a )
                        )
                    ),
            [COLC],
            BLANK ()
        )
)

Kelly,

 

Thank you for your response, I agree the solution worked with the sample data I provided, however, when I substituted live data, the solution did not work.   Also, maybe I did not explain my requirements correctly.  The table on the left is the raw data.  I need to count the total number of "people days" for the oldest year in the table.    The table contains a record for each task completed on a given day.  The measure should only count the person once on any day.

 

So, for example, DW completed 3 task on 3/2/18, CJ completed 2, and DM completed 2.  The total count for 3/2/18 should be 3 since only DW, CJ, and DM reported task completed on that day.

 

The table in the center is the date and Measure you provided and the card below shows the results of the measure. 

 

Overall, the measure calculation is close, at lease it only counting 2019 days.

I attempted to tweak the calculation, but got myself into trouble.  If you could review the calculation, I would appreciate it.

 

Thanks,

Rick

Sorry,  The total should be 19.    9 count on 3/6/19 and 10 count on 3/7/19.

@v-kelly-msft . Please ignore my previous comment.  The caffien had not kicked in when I posted it.  The correct values are as stated previously.

Hi @Anonymous ,

 

Go to query editor>add column>Index column;

Then create 3 measures as below:

 

Measure = 
CALCULATE(COUNTROWS('Table'),FILTER(ALLEXCEPT('Table','Table'[COLB]),YEAR(SELECTEDVALUE('Table'[COLB]))=MAXX(ALL('Table'),YEAR('Table'[COLB]))&&'Table'[COLC]=1))+0
Measure 2 = 
var c = CALCULATE(COUNTROWS('Table'),FILTER(ALL('Table'),'Table'[COLB]=MAX('Table'[COLB]) && 'Table'[Index]<=MAX('Table'[Index])),VALUES('Table'[COLB]))
Return
IF(c>1,BLANK(),1)
_total = 
SUMX(FILTER('Table','Table'[Measure]>=1&&'Table'[Measure 2]=1),'Table'[Measure])

 

Finally you will see:

@v-kelly-msft   Hello Kelly,

 

I'm sorry, the result is not correct.  I think the result of "_total" sums COLC.  The value I need is the number of COLA per distinct COLB where COLC = 1 within the year(max(COLB).  COLB is the task completion date.  An employee can have multiple tasks completed on a given date.

 

For example, if CJ has 2 completions (COLC = 1) , DM has 2 completions, and SS has 1 completion on 3/6/19 the number of "people days" on 3/6/19 would be 3.  If CJ has 2 completions on 3/7/19 and SS has 2 completions on 3/7/19, the number of "people days" on 3/7/19 would be 2.   In this case, the number of "people days" for 2019 would be 5.

 

I can then take the total number of completions (sum of COLC) and divide by the "people days" for 2019 and get an average of (9/5) = 4.5 task per day.

 

My test data is attached.

 

				
COLA, COLB, COLC, Index
AA, 4/1/2018, 1, 0
AA, 4/2/2018, 0, 1
AA, 4/3/2019, 1, 2

EH, 3/7/2019, 1, 38
CJ, 3/7/2019, 1, 39
CJ, 3/7/2019, 1, 40
DM, 3/7/2019, 1, 41
DM, 3/7/2019, 1, 42

 

Here is the results of the 3 measures.

Sorry for the confusion.

 

 

 

 

Hi @Anonymous ,

 

Just modify measure as below:

 

Measure = 
CALCULATE(DISTINCTCOUNT('Table'[COLA]),FILTER(ALLEXCEPT('Table','Table'[COLB]),YEAR(SELECTEDVALUE('Table'[COLB]))=MAXX(ALL('Table'),YEAR('Table'[COLB]))&&'Table'[COLC]=1))+0
