multiple filters

Hi,

Maybe this is a simple question but would like to know the best practice.

I have the following table and I want to filter with the following and get the sum.

- I have a slice for ID. Based on the slicer selection i want to have total.

- Filters are: Output is 3, Type is 99 and period can be either 3, 6 or 12.

- the table is:

IDOutputTypePeriodValue
A399314
A399613
A3991216
Axc1233
A499#23
A3f#22
A3v1232
B399314
B399623
B3991216
Bxc1230
B499#23
B3f#26
B3v1221

 

Measure3 = CALCULATE(SUM('Table'[Value]), FILTER('Table', 'Table'[Output]="3"), FILTER('Table','Table'[Type]="99"), FILTER('Table', ('Table'[Period]="3" || 'Table'[Period]="12" || 'Table'[Period]= "6")))
or
Measure2 = CALCULATE(SUM('Table'[Value]), FILTER('Table', 'Table'[Output]="3" && 'Table'[Type]="99" && 'Table'[Period] in {"3", "12", "6"}))
 
which one is best to use? They both give the correct answer.

I think the second formula reads better and probably minismises system overheads.

Hi @IF ,

 

The second option is better because you don't load the table into the Filter function each time - you do it once.

Is this measure the only one with such many conditions? If not and you will create more similar measures then in my opinion it is better to use slicers to filter the data.

@IF , the second one is better. We should avoid the use of "OR" as far as possible. OR can slow down on big data
