## Measure with "does not contain" and/or "is null"

I am creating a measure within Power BI Desktop.  I want it to distinct count all Work Orders that:

1. Has no "Completed Date"

2. The CUSTVEND[ACCTNO] is blank

3. The [On Hold] measure equals 1

4. The WO_HDR[Partnumber] does not contain the work "kit"

Below is my attempt and it does not work.  Could someone please help.  Thank you!

WO on Hold Count = CALCULATE(DISTINCTCOUNT(WO_HDR[Work Order#]),WO_HDR_STATUS[COMPLETED_DATE]= blank(),CUSTVEND[ACCTNO]= blank(),[On Hold]=1,WO_HDR[PARTNUMBER]<>'%kit%')

Hi @Anonymous,

Please use the following formula instead, replace tablename with your own table.

`WO on Hold Count = CALCULATE(DISTINCTCOUNT(WO_HDR[Work Order#]),WO_HDR_STATUS[COMPLETED_DATE]= blank(),CUSTVEND[ACCTNO]= blank(),FILTER(tablename,tablename[On Hold]=1), FILTER(WO_HDR, WO_HDR[PARTNUMBER]<>"%kit%"))`

Thanks,

Hi @Anonymous,

Please change your formula to the following formula and check if it returns expected result. If not, please post the detailed error message and sample data of your scenario.

`WO on Hold Count = CALCULATE(DISTINCTCOUNT(WO_HDR[Work Order#]),WO_HDR_STATUS[COMPLETED_DATE]= blank(),CUSTVEND[ACCTNO]= blank(),[On Hold]=1, FILTER(WO_HDR, WO_HDR[PARTNUMBER]<>"%kit%"))`

I'm not sure how to post sample data effectively here.  It appears the issue to a True/False expression.

Thanks for your help.

Perfect!  Thank you so much!

'%kit%' is not supported.  You need to use SEARCH or FIND dax funtions, or some flavor of LEFT/RIGHT parsing, etc.

This is not working either.  I removed the "kit" portion of the measure and it is still coming up with an error.  I believe the: = blank() is not correct also.

WO on Hold Count = CALCULATE(DISTINCTCOUNT(WO_HDR[Work Order#]),WO_HDR_STATUS[COMPLETED_DATE]= blank(),CUSTVEND[ACCTNO]= blank(),[On Hold]=1,WO_HDR[PARTNUMBER]<>search("kit",WO_HDR[PARTNUMBER],1))

I'm sure there's a way to do this solely in your measure without adding a calculated column, but adding a column is much easier at my level. I'll keep playing with the DAX solution, or maybe someone else will jump in, but for now...

I'd start by adding a calculated column to determine if "kit" is in your PARTNUMBER.

That easy True/False column can then be used in your measure. In the screenshot below, I've got a plain COUNTROWS formula, and also a measure that counts rows not containing "kit" in the Part Number:
