How to group data on table

Hello,

 

How do I display Product Categories and Product Count Against each category in a tabular format?

 

Just like writing

 

SELECT c.Name AS Category, Count(p.ID) AS ProductCount

FROM Category c

INNER JOIN Product p ON c.ID = p.CategoryID

GROUP BY c.Name

 

And is it possible to even write SQL Queries in PowerBI? I use to do this in QlikView!

 

Thanks.

Hi @Aweklin,

 

Perhaps you can try to use group function of power query.

Hi @Aweklin

 

If your datasource is an SQL datasource then you can just run this SQL as your query into your table and let the DB Engine do the grouping.  Otherwise you can do this both in the Query Editor and in DAX.

 

In DAX the forumla will look something like :

 

New Table = SUMMARIZE ( '<your table>' , [Name] , "ProductCount" , COUNTROWS('<your table>') )

Re: How to group data on table

You should be able to add Category and ID to a table visualization.  On the ID click the little down arrow and select "Count" (Values section of the table element on the right side menu).

 

I'm not familiar with QlikView.  You can use SQL to get your data into Power BI from a source that supports it, but DAX is used to create measures and calculated columns within the model.
