distinct count and group by

I want to find out what % of customer order by Region and Tier. 

 

I can get the count of how many order by dropping to value and changed to distinct count, 

But i cant get the total count of each group. Can anyone help with the measure please ! Thank you

The measure should something like the follow: 

 

Count OF Cust Ordered = CALCULATE(DISTINCTCOUNT('Table'[Cust]),ALLEXCEPT('Table','Table'[Tier],'Table'[Region]),FILTER('Table','Table'[Order]<>BLANK()))

% = [Count OF Cust Ordered]/COUNT('Table'[Cust])

Hello @Anonymous,

 

What do you mean by count of each group? Can you share the expected result based on the sample data shared?

 

Cheers!

@vivran22 The result is in the bottom session 

      

                      # OF Order   |  Total # of Cust  | % Cust ordered

Tier 1

       Region 1

There are multiple ways of achieving this. One below is without using any measures

 

Here is the sample dataset I have created for this purpose:

Then I have used the matrix visual, and dragged Order Quantity thrice under Values:

  1. I selected Count from the field properties
  2.  I selected Sum from field properties
  3.  I selected Sum from field properties > Show Value as > Percent of column total

@vivran22 thank your very much for your help. but NO. thats not what i am looking for. 

 

I am looking for % of #Cust place an order. (Yes - ordered; NO - didnt ordered) . Like 10 out of 20 ordered. 50% placed order. 

 

In your example. every cust had ordered. thats 100% placed order...

but not every Cust is in the fact or transcation table; so thats why i cut out 4 cust in my example. total 20 cust only 16 had ordered.

You requirement was not as detailed in your orignal post. Basis your recent input, may I suggest you to have a separate table for maintaing list of customers:

 

Customer table:

 

customer table.PNG

 

and separate table for sales order:

 

sales table.PNG

 

Create the relationship between these two tables:

and then use following measures to get the desired results:

 

Total Customers = COUNTROWS(dtCust)

Customer Ordered = DISTINCTCOUNT(dtSales[Customer])

% Ordered = DIVIDE([Customer Ordered],[Total Customers])

 

Result:

Hi @Anonymous ,

 

Just wanted to check if you are trying to do this in excel?

In excel you can create a Pivot table for "Product" column.
