Count rows if between two time slots

Dear all,

 

I have the following issue which I think should be relatively easy to solve, but I have not found a solution yet. Currently I have below table in excel but I would like to get the same result (Column F) in a query in PowerBI.  Basically it comes down to this, Column A is a long list of events happening on the specified date/time. I would like to count how many events happen (F) in a timeframe of 10 minutes (between C and D). Some helper columns are made to come to the result in column F (Column B en E)

 

In Excel the following calculations are applied, but perhaps the calcaluation could be made way easier in PowerBI. Hope somebody could help me out with this one! If more info is needed please let me know.

 

A = raw data

B = VLOOKUP(A2;C$2:E$8527;3)

C = A

D = A + 10 minutes

E = Index column

F= COUNTIF(B:B;E2)

Hi @Anonymous ,

You can modify the formula like this:

Column =
VAR __Start = [Timestart]
VAR __End = [Time + 10 Minutes]
VAR _count =
    COUNTROWS (
        FILTER ( ALL ( 'table' ), [Timestamp] >= __Start && [Timestamp] <= __End )
    )
RETURN
    IF ( ISBLANK ( _count ), 0, _count )

@Anonymous - Should be something like:

Column = 
  VAR __Start = [Timestart]
  VAR __End = [Time + 10 Minutes]
RETURN
  COUNTROWS([Timestamp]>=__Start && [Timestamp]<=__End)

Dear @Greg_Deckler 

 

Thanks for your quick reply! Your solution translates as following in my powerBI file:

 

Column =
VAR __Start = 'KPI-Export-2020-09'[Start]
VAR __End = 'KPI-Export-2020-09'[End]
RETURN
COUNTROWS('KPI-Export-2020-09'[Date/time]'>=__Start && 'KPI-Export-2020-09'[Date/time]<=__End)
 
However, I get the following error:
Syntax for '>=__Start&& is not correct
 
Do you perhaps know how I should re-write the syntax? I've tried a couple of things but not succesful unfortunately.
 
Best regards!
