## How to count Matching values in One Column based on values in another Column

Good Morning,

I am trying to determine how I can get a count of a matching data fields within 1 column based on another column in order to eventually use it down the line as as a filter in my viual to filter to Mono-line policies.

Essentially I have a table with all active policy data including the Customer Number.  I want to find how many policies are assigned to each Customer Number (as there can be multiple policies to each customer):

Customer Number           Policy Status      Policy Number

1                                         A                       123

2                                         A                       124

1                                         C                       125

1                                         Q                       126

2                                         A                       127

4                                         Q                       128

3                                         A                        129

So in the above example the count of Customer 1 would be "3", Customer 2 would be "2" and Customer 3/4 would both be "1" :

How can I return this count so I can use it as a filter on my viusal later?  Thank you!

Hi,

If you want your count by Customer and not by Policy, then I think it should be a calculated column as advised by Tamerj1, but with this :

`Number Policy = CALCULATE( COUNT(TabPolicy[Policy Number ]) ,ALLEXCEPT(TabPolicy ,TabPolicy[Customer Number] ) )`

Or as a measure it would be :
`Count of Policy = VAR CurrentCustomer = SELECTEDVALUE( TabPolicy[Customer Number] )RETURNCALCULATE( COUNT( TabPolicy[Policy Number ] ) , TabPolicy[Customer Number] = CurrentCustomer )`
But it will not be as easy to filter as a column.
Another solution would be to do a pre consolidated table :
`Table Number of Policy = SUMMARIZECOLUMNS(TabPolicy[Customer Number] , "Count Policy" ,COUNT(TabPolicy[Policy Number ] ) )`

Let us know which solution you'll adopt 😉

Hi @amarris

you can create a new calculated column

COUNTROWS (

CALCULATETABLE (

Table,

ALLEXCEPT ( Table, Table[Policy Number] ),

)

)
