Help with VALUES()

I am still very green in DAX. I simply want to find the median value of the distinct elements in a column. I tried to write this:

 

MEDIAN(VALUES(Table[Column]))

 

The error says that MEDIAN() only accepts a column reference. How do I tell it that the result of VALUES() is a single column?

 

Thanks,

Amon

Hi @aseagull 

 

Try to use MEDIANX rather than MEDIAN:

Something like this:

MEDIANX(VALUES(Table[Column]),Table[Column]))

If this post helps, please consider accepting it as the solution to help the other members find it more quickly.

Appreciate your Kudos!!
