AllExcept is messing up filter

Here is my scenario (simplified): 

 

I have a reference table: TableA

IDdescription
Athis is item A
Bthis is Item B
Cthis is Item C

 

 

And a detail table: TableB

Item IDCategoryQuantity
ABikes1
ABikes1
ACars1
BBikes1
BCars1
CCars1
CCars1

 

 

There is a one:many relationship between TableA->TableB on the item id.

Here is what I want:

  • first filter Table B by Category = "Cars",
  • but then add a measure that sums all of the quantities when Category = "Bikes"
  • include item description from TableA

I tried the following measure, and then adding description but it seems like calculate (or allexcept) is messing up filter context when I try to drag in "description" from TableA.

 

Bikes Quantity = CALCULATE(SUM(Table2[Quantity]), ALLEXCEPT(Table2, Table2[Item ID]), Table2[Category]="Bikes")

Hi @mattcameron

 

You can get your measure to work as well. You just need a few filters on the category. They do it in a slightly different way but you can get to what you want.

Re: AllExcept is messing up filter

you could try this

 

Bikes Quantity 1 = CALCULATE(SUM(TableB[Quantity]), filter(ALL(TableB),TableB[Item ID]=max(TableB[Item ID]) && TableB[Category]="Bikes"))

But you would need to include the Quantity column for it to show and it would be blank rather than 0 which isn't ideal.

 you could do it with a slightly different formula

 

Bikes Quantity 1 = if(ISBLANK( CALCULATE(SUM(TableB[Quantity]), filter(ALL(TableB),TableB[Item ID]=max(TableB[Item ID]) && TableB[Category]="Bikes"))),0, CALCULATE(SUM(TableB[Quantity]), filter(ALL(TableB),TableB[Item ID]=max(TableB[Item ID]) && TableB[Category]="Bikes")))

 Set category to be "First"

@gooranga1Thanks for the query, seems to be working! Any chance you could go into some detail as to how this is working (what's actually happening?)
