Ignoring filter in the measure

Hello!

Please suggest - how to compose the "Depts of all Regions" measure, for the example on the screenshot, in a right way?

Currently it is returning "3". But correct result must be "5".

Here is the link to PBIX file with this example - https://disk.yandex.ru/d/6vaJZBUwV2p3bA

Hi @pavel_severov ,

change your formula to ALL():

As parry2k mentioned: Auto-exist may play a rule in your example.

Read the following articel from Matco Russo: https://www.sqlbi.com/articles/understanding-dax-auto-exist/

or watch the video of Albert Ferrari: Auto-exist on clusters or numbers - Unplugged 22 on YouTube:

@FrankAT, thanks for the links! I was not aware of auto-exist.
Even Microsoft official "ALL()" documentation has a link to https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/dax/all-function-dax :-)))

But, isn't it real underwater rock? How many pitfalls are still in DAX?

@pavel_severov it looks simple but it is not. There is a concept of auto exist, if you are not using star schema, you can run into issues and this is exactly the use case of that.

Sorry I can't understand your explanation. Please try one more time with more details

@pavel_severov it should be ALL(Dept) not ALL(Dept[Regions])

@parry2k, but I need to ignore only Depts[Region] filter. All other filters must remain.

This is very simplified test/example. In real report there are lot of other fields and filters.

I can't understand why in situation like this ALL(Depts[Region]) doesn't work properly.
