Summarize data into new table

Hello,

I have the following data 

I am trying to create a new table that groups the "Department" column and sums "No of device" 

filtered on "Ticket Status" (Open) and "Attribute" containing the keyword "Laptop".

Hi @harpreetsingh08 ,

 

Here a solution in DAX:

Note, I called the table you pasted above 'TableToBeGrouped'

TableGroupedNew = 
SUMMARIZE (
    FILTER ( 
        'TableToBeGrouped', 
        [Ticket Status] = "Open" && CONTAINSSTRING ( TableToBeGrouped[Attributes], "Laptop" )
    ),
    [Department],
    "SumOfTickets", SUM ( 'TableToBeGrouped'[No of device] )
)

 

Let me know if this helps or if you need the solution in Power Query 🙂

You cannot sum over strings. You need to change the column to number:

Thanks, it solved the problem!

There is one more fix I need help with, the "No of device" is a string.

How to sum a string data type?
