Most common value from a measure

Hello!

 

Say I have a table with two number columns (A and B).

I have created a measure (not a calculated column) (C) that calculates the differense between the columns (A - B)

A B C
5 3 2
7 2 5
6 4 2
4 2 2


Now I would like to show the most common value (which in this case is 2) in a card viz based on the measure I've created. 

How can I create such a measure?

Thanks!

Hi,

Please check the below picture and the attached pbix file.

All measures are in the attached pbix file.

The most common value: =
VAR add_measureC =
ADDCOLUMNS ( Data, "@measureC", [C:] )
VAR groupby_measureC =
GROUPBY (
add_measureC,
[@measureC],
"@count_rows", SUMX ( CURRENTGROUP (), 1 )
)
VAR max_countrows =
MAXX ( groupby_measureC, [@count_rows] )
RETURN
MAXX ( FILTER ( groupby_measureC, [@count_rows] = max_countrows ), [@measureC] )

Simple enough by Excel worksheet formula.

@Clay82  you can achieve the end goal with thfollowing measure

_diff = SUM(tbl[A])-SUM(tbl[B])

Measure =
VAR _1 =
    ADDCOLUMNS ( tbl, "diff", [_diff] )
VAR _2 =
    ADDCOLUMNS (
        _1,
        "count", COUNTX ( FILTER ( _1, EARLIER ( [diff] ) = [diff] ), [diff] )
    )
VAR _3 =
    ADDCOLUMNS (
        _2,
        "rank", RANKX ( FILTER ( _2, EARLIER ( [count] ) < [count] ), [count],, DESC, DENSE )
    )
RETURN
    MAXX ( FILTER ( _3, [rank] = 1 ), [diff] )

Wow Jihwan it worked perfectly! Thank you!

Also I need the same for column B (which is in fact a measure based on a calculated column. So another measure to find the most common value in column B. Is it possible for you to help me? 

Hi, 
I am not sure if I understood your question correctly, but please check the below picture and the attached pbix file.

The most common value from Column B: =
VAR groupby_columnB =
GROUPBY ( Data, Data[B], "@count_rows", SUMX ( CURRENTGROUP (), 1 ) )
VAR max_countrows =
MAXX ( groupby_columnB, [@count_rows] )
RETURN
MAXX ( FILTER ( groupby_columnB, [@count_rows] = max_countrows ), Data[B] )
