Hello, how can I show the container no. on the table only when it appears 10 times or more? If less than 10, I do not want it to show on my table, thank you!

Hi @FriedWater 


Please new a measure.

Filter = 
    COUNT ( 'Table'[Container No] ),
    ALLEXCEPT ( 'Table', 'Table'[Container No] )

And apply it to the filter.


Best Regards,

DAX is easy, CALCULATE makes DAX hard...
Not applicable

Please Try This :
First you need this measure:

count_of_containers = CALCULATE(COUNT( 'Table'[Container No] ))

Then you can get your desired output by creating this column :
Column = IF([Count_of_containers]>10,'Table'[Container No])

Sorry, I think I did not phrase my question correctly. What I meant was only for the container number to appear on my table visual when the exact same container number appears more than 10 times.
