Need Help - Filtering Distinctcount and Counting DistinctCount Count

Hello all,

 

Fairly new to PowerBi and Query,


Looking for some guidance on how to go about this....

 

This is my pivot table result within my data model 

Example:

 

 DistinctCount of Words
12341
45662
75981
12341
12343

 

Im looking for a way to display my distintcount results 

Results of Distinct CountCount
13
22
>=22

Hi, @tchchan3 

 

Based on your description, I created data to reproduce your scenario. The pbix file is attached in the end.

Table:

Test:

You may create measures as below.

DistinctCount of Words = SUM('Table'[Value])
Result Measure = 
var t = 
ADDCOLUMNS(
    'Table',
    "Re",
    [DistinctCount of Words]
)
var tab = 
ADDCOLUMNS(
    Test,
    "Result",
    SWITCH(
        [Results of Distinct Count],
        "1",
        COUNTROWS(
            FILTER(
                t,
                [Re]=1
            )
        ),
        "2",
        COUNTROWS(
            FILTER(
                t,
                [Re]=2
            )
        ),
        ">=2",
        COUNTROWS(
            FILTER(
                t,
                [Re]>=2
            )
        )
    )
)
return
SUMX(
    tab,
    [Result]
)

 

Result:

Hello @tchchan3 

 

you can solve this in DAX by creating a new table using the SUMMARIZE function where you make the distinct count and depending on the output of this, writing in a new column 1, 2 or >=2. Then using this created table in your pivot-table. Here a possible code

CountDistinctCount = SUMMARIZE(YOURTABLE  
      , YOURTABLE[COLUMNTODISTINCTCOUNT], "CountOfDistinctCount", if (COUNT(YOURTABLE[COLUMNTODISTINCTCOUNT])=1, "1", if (COUNT(YOURTABLE[COLUMNTODISTINCTCOUNT])=2, "2", ">=2")))
