## How to write a measure to check at least any 3 conditions are satisfying out of 6

Hi Friends,

In a data set , I have created 6 different measures based on 6 different selection criteria to provide benefits to citizen . Now I want to write a measure which can return me number of beneficiary who are satisfying at least  3 of of 6 criteria. Issue is these 3 can be any combination among 6. Hence i am unable to use "IF" function as the combinations are becoming very large.

Pls help with the DAX function and syntax which i can use to create the measure

I can suggest smth.

maybe, you need a measure like

``````Measure =
IF([beneficiary] = [criteria1], 1, 0) +
IF([beneficiary] = [criteria2], 1, 0) +
IF([beneficiary] = [criteria3], 1, 0) +
IF([beneficiary] = [criteria4], 1, 0) +
IF([beneficiary] = [criteria5], 1, 0) +
IF([beneficiary] = [criteria6], 1, 0)``````

then filter beneficiary with Measure >= 3

Unfortunately , I cant.

In a data set,  I have created 6 different dax measures  to get number of  beneficiary based on 6 differnet criteria.

I can find number of beneficiary who are satisfying at least one criteria or all 6 criteria using the Calculate , Filter ,And and OR function But dont know how to find the count of beneficiary satisfying at least 2 criteria , or at least 3 criteria for that matter.
