## Count changes in a field (with date)

Hello.

I have a table with these fields:

- employee: ID number of the worker

- location: "home" or "office"

- date: each day the employee worked

I need to count how many changes from "home" to "office" or "office" to "home" had each employee. Of course, each change should be coherent in time. For example, for one employee:

 date Location 25/09 home 26/09 office 27/09 home 28/09 home 29/09 home

the count should be 2. How can I do that? I may also need to detail only the changes. Which is the best approach? A new column with M? A new table? I discard the measure, because of that need of the detailed info of only the changes.

Thanks,

Hi @grojnak ,

I suggest you to try code as below to create a measure.

My Sample:

``````Count Location Change For Employee =
VAR _SUMMARIZE =
SUMMARIZE (
'Table',
"CheckPoint",
CALCULATE (
MIN ( 'Table'[date] ),
FILTER (
ALLEXCEPT ( 'Table', 'Table'[Employee ID] ),
'Table'[date] > EARLIER ( [date] )
&& 'Table'[Location] <> EARLIER ( [Location] )
)
)
),
[Employee ID],
[CheckPoint]
)
RETURN
COUNTX ( _SUMMARIZE, [CheckPoint] )``````

Result is as below.
