Invalid Token: Measure in PowerBI

Good morning all

I'm trying to create a measure to give me a % of assessments that were completed in a given period of time, but I keep getting the invalid token error, the trouble is I'm not sure what it is referring to, it currently is giving me "line 1, offset 282" but when I make changes the offset changes. 

Here's my code:

upcoming Assessments Complete = CALCULATE(DISTINCTCOUNT( ASSESSMENT_TASKS[MEMBER_NBR]), OR(ASSESSMENT_TASKS[ASSESSMENT_STATUS] = "Assessed late", ASSESSMENT_TASKS[ASSESSMENT_STATUS] = "Assessed on time"), OR (ASSESSMENT_TASKS[DAYS UNTIL DUE] = "14 DAYS OR LESS",ASSESSMENT_TASKS[Days Until Due] = "15 TO 45 DAYS"])) / CALCULATE(DISTINCTCOUNT(ASSESSMENT_TASKS[MEMBER_NBR]), OR (ASSESSMENT_TASKS[DAYS UNTIL DUE]= "14 DAYS OR LESS", ASSESSMENT_TASKS[Days Until Due]= "15 TO 45 DAYS"))
 
Any advice would be very helpful! Thank you so much!

Hi @Anonymous ,

 

This error message is an indication that there is a problem with your syntax. I found an extra "]" in your code, please remove it and run it again.

Also, you can format the DAX in this URL https://www.daxformatter.com/  to make it more beautiful.

 

upcoming Assessments Complete =
CALCULATE (
    DISTINCTCOUNT ( ASSESSMENT_TASKS[MEMBER_NBR] ),
    OR (
        ASSESSMENT_TASKS[ASSESSMENT_STATUS] = "Assessed late",
        ASSESSMENT_TASKS[ASSESSMENT_STATUS] = "Assessed on time"
    ),
    OR (
        ASSESSMENT_TASKS[DAYS UNTIL DUE] = "14 DAYS OR LESS",
        ASSESSMENT_TASKS[Days Until Due] = "15 TO 45 DAYS"
    )
)
    / CALCULATE (
        DISTINCTCOUNT ( ASSESSMENT_TASKS[MEMBER_NBR] ),
        OR (
            ASSESSMENT_TASKS[DAYS UNTIL DUE] = "14 DAYS OR LESS",
            ASSESSMENT_TASKS[Days Until Due] = "15 TO 45 DAYS"
        )
    )

 

If the problem is still not resolved, please provide detailed error information or the expected result you expect. Let me know immediately, looking forward to your reply.

@EZeddie @v-kkf-msft Well spotted @EZeddie!

It's worth mentioning a method I often use to find out what's causing an error like this is to create the measure with one clause at a time, see if it works (or at least doesn't give an error), and then add the next bit until the error pops up. For example, first I would create the measure as

upcoming Assessments Complete = 1

then

upcoming Assessments Complete = CALCULATE ( DISTINCTCOUNT ( ASSESSMENT_TASKS[MEMBER_NBR] ))

then

upcoming Assessments Complete =
CALCULATE (
    DISTINCTCOUNT ( ASSESSMENT_TASKS[MEMBER_NBR] ),
    ASSESSMENT_TASKS[ASSESSMENT_STATUS] = "Assessed late"
)

and so on. Once you add a clause that gives an error, it will likely mean the error is in the clause just added. 

 

Useful to narrow down the location of an error.

@Anonymous , try removing all the line breaks in the measure and put it all in one line. If the DAX editor does force a line-break, make sure it doesn't line-break in the middle of a tablename or fieldname.
