## calculate and/or conditions

Hi,

I am trying to make sense of and/or conditons in calculate.

This works calculate multiple table or conditions = =CALCULATE([TOTAL_SALES],'Product'[Color]="Red",'Calendar'[Year]=2017)

the below does not

= CALCULATE([TOTAL_SALES],'Product'[Color]="Red" && 'Calendar'[Year]=2017)

I know

what is the difference between the two.

Thanks

Hi @san17680 ,

The second formula uses the && operator to combine the same two conditions. However, this is not a valid syntax in DAX.

Power BI Desktop also prompts this when I reproduce the error. You can check the screenshot below.

in the ccalculate function,
you first type the expresion and the filters

when you first use " ," as the first filter and type in color = "red , you are filtering the color table and therefor cant use && , so you need to apply more than one filter

however if you have a relationship between both ,

try
CALCULATE([TOTAL_SALES],FILTER('Product','Product'[Color]="Red" && 'Calendar'[Year]=2017))

Helper II

CALCULATE([TOTAL_SALES],FILTER('Product','Product'[Color]="Red" && 'Calendar'[Year]=2017)) this wont work because there is no filter table for this conditionn  'Calendar'[Year]=2017

my question is isn't this  CALCULATE([TOTAL_SALES],'Product'[Color]="Red",'Calendar'[Year]=2017

same as CALCULATE([TOTAL_SALES],'Product'[Color]="Red", && 'Calendar'[Year]=2017

The reason for this behaviour are the conditions you define.
One comes from table 'Product', other comes from table 'Calendar'.
Different tables are separated by comma not by &&.
If you have data from same table e.g. 'Product' you can use && defining conditions.
