Index DISTINCT values

Hello,

 

I thought my question was an easy question, but I don't get what I doing wrong.

 

I want to use DAX to find the second (or third, ect...) occurrence in a list of unique values.

 

So we DISTINCT and INDEX I should be ok but it index all the values and not only the unique one.

 

In a table called 'Tableau1', I try the obtain the second unique value of a column name 'Tableau1' [CT].

 

Thanks for your help.

Nicolas

Hi Nicolas,

This DAX should do the trick:

SecondDistinct = 
INDEX(2,DISTINCT(DistinctList[List]),ORDERBY(DistinctList[List]))

Thanks a lot John, That was what I was doing but my data were wrong (not the formula), but your help make me find the mistake.

 

Thanks again
