The True/False expression does not specify a column...

Hello!

 

I need to use a measure filter in a calculate of sum. 

 

My Sum =
VAR t = CALCULATETABLE(DISTINCT(ALLSELECTED(List1[Keyword])), FILTER(List, CONTAINSSTRINGEXACT(MAX(Table[Text]), List1[Keyword])=TRUE()))
VAR x = COUNTX(t, List1[Keyword])
RETURN CALCULATE(SUM(Table[Value]), NOT(ISBLANK(x)))
 
With x as separate measure and visual filter works, but I need a calculation that doesn't use a visual filter, but DAX.
 
It should find the selected keywords in a text column (multiple selection possible) and sum the values that correspond to the texts found to contain the keywords only.
 
How can I fix my DAX without the error message?

@EmaT , Based on what I got, It should be

 

CALCULATETABLE(DISTINCT(ALLSELECTED(List1[Keyword])), FILTER(List1, List1[Keyword] in values( Table[Text])  ))

It looks better, but makes no difference to the error message. This comes from x being a measure, that's why it won't calculate with a condition coming from a measure and not a column. (It's the same if I use t directly, e.g. using NOT(ISEMPTY(t)) in the condition.) 

 

I need to sum only the values for which there is at least a text containing the one of the selected keywords, i.e. for which x is not blank (ot t not empty). 

I don't know how else to avoid this in CALCULATE.
