Sum of a measure with boolean values



I have a measure that calculates volume for a particular date by SAP ID - Measure1.

I want to use Measure1 to calculate the total count of SAP ID with volume >0 to create another measure.

I tried using


var Count_helper=IF([Measure1]>0,1,0)
return SUMX(VALUES('Table'),Count_helper)
But it did not work





Measure1=var m1=MAX(date_test[year_month])
var Currentdate=DATE(year(m1),MONTH(m1)-12,DAY(m1))
var Previousdate=DATE(year(Currentdate),MONTH(Currentdate)-12,DAY(Currentdate))
var Result = CALCULATE(
    SUM('Datas Vol'[Total Volume]),FILTER(Dates,Dates[date]>=Previousdate && Dates[date]<Currentdate))
return Result

Hi @Anonymous ,

Referring to the example above, you can try to create such a measure for your needs:

Measure2 = 
VAR t =
    FILTER ( 
      [Measure 1] > 2 
  IF ( [Measure 1] > 2, t, 0 )


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.

Count = CALCULATE(DISTINCTCOUNT(table [SAP ID]), FILTER(Table, [Measure1> 0))

for some reason countrow is not working


Apologies since I saw you wanted the count of unique values. I changed the meaures to:

           DISTINCTCOUNT(Table [SAP ID]), 
           FILTER(Table, [Measure1> 0)
