simple measure

01.png

 

Hello ,

 

So I have spent 2 hours trying to create this formula with no luck. 

 

I am simply trying to get a count of all documents that are currently open so that I can show the number of OPEN documents per country.

 

Seems like a  real simple calculation but DAX of course makes it impossible to understand.  I just wish they would abolish this crazy language as it makes no sense and simple calculations are extremely difficult to create.

 

 How can I simply add a column that will Calculate all open documents per country?

Hey @lcasey.

 

I assume you are using the Country as the slicer, so I would use this to make your measure:

 

New Measure = CALCULATE(COUNTA(Transactions[Column1]), FILTER(Transactions, Transactions[Column2] > 0))

 

Hope this helps,

 

Alan

Thanks!   I am still struggling with this language. I really wish I never would have learned SQL now. I think there is some sort of block in my brain preventing me from understanding this language.  I need to practice much more!!!!

Yeah, I totally understand Smiley Happy
