## Sum Single Column based on Multiple Name Appearances Across Columns

Hopefully you can assist..  We have multiple people working on numerous packing efforts.  Their name can appear in Column 1, 2 or 3.  Column 1 is the lead and columns 2 and 3 assist.  When one person completes the job they get full credit, 2 then .5 with 3 shared at .33.

I want to show a table with the packer names across the top and the dates (data column not shown) on the left.  How do I sum a single column (Packs) when the names can appear in either column 1, 2 or 3?

 Packedby1 Packedby2 Packedby3 Packs a 1 a 1 a 1 a b 0.5 a b 0.5 a b 0.5 a c 0.5 a c 0.5 a c 0.5 a b c 0.33 a b c 0.33 a b c 0.33 b 1 b 1 b 1 b c 0.5 b c 0.5 b c 0.5 c 1 c 1 c 1

Hi @mshodge

You could pivot the so you have the data in a tall column using the following calculated table :

```Table = UNION(
SELECTCOLUMNS('Table1',"PackedBy",'Table1'[Packedby1],"Packs",[Packs]),
SELECTCOLUMNS('Table1',"PackedBy",'Table1'[Packedby1],"Packs",[Packs]),
SELECTCOLUMNS('Table1',"PackedBy",'Table1'[Packedby1],"Packs",[Packs])
)```

Then you and put the Packer in a Matrix visual on columns and the rows will sum up correctly.

Awesome.  Great response Phil.  Thank you.  I changed each line to Packedby1 to Packedby2 and 3.  I then filtered out the blanks (there will be many more blanks than data).

Cheers, Matt
