CALCULATE count of several text values

Hi,

 

I am rying to calculate the number of times 3 different strings appear in a column.

This measure works for one value -> CountPunctuality = CALCULATE(COUNTROWS(OTIF),OTIF[Punctuality] = "On Time")

 

 

I need to also count the number of times 2 other strings appear in the same column. Tried using or , & but nothing's working.

Re: CALCULATE count of several text values

@android1 You can either create Measures for EACH one - the same as before

Just change "On Time" - so you'll have 3 Measures

Or do as in the picture...

Create a Table => drag the column twice to the Values area => the second column change to Count

This is faster but you'll have more flexibility later on if you create the individual Measures

IF - Arrival Time - Late or On Time.png

@android1 Try this...

 

CountPunctuality =
COUNTROWS ( FILTER ( OTIF, OTIF[Punctuality] = "On Time" ) )
