Hi guys,

I am still figuring out how to use DAX. I have come up with the same answer using what looks like different DAX.

Is one better than the other or are they both essentially the same? I think the latter might be more efficent as it only filters a column. And what about OR and II, do these mean the same thing?

1.

=CALCULATE (
[TotalHours],
FILTER (
EmployeeHours,
EmployeeHours[Code] = "PICK"
|| EmployeeHours[Code] = "AXE"
)
)

2.

=CALCULATE (
[TotalHours],
FILTER (
ALL ( EmployeeHours[Code] ),
OR (
EmployeeHours[Code] = "PICK",
EmployeeHours[Code] = "AXE"
)
)
)

@Anonymous yes || and OR are doing the same thing here.  One is a Function and another one is an operator .

In this case, you can use in

CALCULATE (
[TotalHours],
FILTER (
EmployeeHours,
EmployeeHours[Code] in { "PICK" , "AXE" }
)
)

I try to avoid or as far as possible
