Calculate "opposite"

Hi,

I have a calculate function in the format of:

CALCULATE(SUM(COLUMN1),
FILTER(COLUMN1 = FALSE),

FILTER (COLUMN2 >= 1000),

FILTER(COLUMN3 = VALUE))

Can someone help me understand this more deeply:

1. What is the order in which the filters are applied? I understand that this is kind of like "sum" if all of the following are true.

2. How do i do the "opposite" of this? In my data set, if i put the opposite to just the filters, the result is wrong.

Thanks for the help!

@CarlsBerg999  It is not correctly created the query.

Try to do something like this

query= CALCULATE(SUM(yourtable[column1]), FILTER(yourtable, yourtable[column1] = "False" && yourtable[column2] >= 1000 && yourtable[column3] = "Value"))

This will give to you the sum of column 1 when the row has the 3 condiciones (beucase i put an AND = &&)

if you want, you can put OR = ||

See the link below for a detailed explanation of CALCULATE. The filter arguments are intersected (merged with the AND operator).

Would you be able to provide an example of the wrong result (and underlying data) when doing the opposite calculation?
