## minimum value of a measure

I have built two measures...."Booked and Open Orders" and "Kits on Order".

Booked and Open Orders = sum('Part Number Master'[QTY_PO_OPEN])+sum('Part Number Master'[QTY_SOBOOKED])

Kits on order = DIVIDE([Booked and Open Orders],sum(BOM[Qty1]))

I want the minimum value in the measure "Kits on Order", which is 40 for 381550KIT and 25 for WG KIT #1.

It seems easy enough but everytime I use the Min or Minx, it is saying it only uses column values.

hi @Anonymous

Use this dax, MinX(Table, Measure or Expression)

`Min-Kits-in-order = MINX('Part Number Master',[Kits on order])`

There is one simple way to find the MIN of 3 different expressions or columns. Simply create a table by doing the following.

MIN(

[expression1],

[expression2],

[expression3]

},

[value]

)

Try this simple way and it shall work!

How Can I use MIN in DAX with Multiple columns

I have 3 columns with deffrent values, How can i get Mnimum value of the total 3 columns

It's admittedly clunky, but the only quick fix that I've found is something like:

var min_growth12 = MIN(growth1,growth2)
var min_growth34 = MIN(growth3,growth4)
var min_growth_next = MIN(min_growth12,min_growth34)
var min_growth = MIN(growth5,min_growth_next)

Where growth1, 2, 3 etc are additional variables in the overall measure.

I had tried that and I didn't think that it worked because when I added it to the visual, every line had a different number but when I reduced the visual down to just the part number and the new measure, it gave me the correct answer.

Thanks
