Calculate the sum of Duplicate values from a Table

i have a table that has a hash entry for for each item in the table. where you have duplicate hash values i would like to sum the size column of only the duplicate value.

 

The aim is that i can have a clear split in a stacked column chart that shows the total size of the duplicate value and the total size of each distint size.(The total sum of the duplicate value and the distinct values should be equal to the total sum of the occurance of a particular hash entry).

 

i did something for the sum(see visual below). i just want something similar for the sum. i'm guessing it would require i create a measure that can sum the values of every distinct hash entry and also the sum of every duplicate entry. Just not sure how to go about do it. any help will be appreciated

Re: Calculate the sum of Duplicate values from a Table

@Anonymous

 

I think the approach presented earlier could still be more versatile but we can certainly follow your logic for the count, with two measures.

The aggregate size of the files excluding the duplicates would be:

 

SizeWithoutDuplicates =
SUMX (
    DISTINCT ( unstructured[Hash] ),
    CALCULATE(DISTINCT(unstructured[Size]))
)

 

and then we can calculate the size from the duplicates using the previous measure:

 

SizeOfDuplicates =
SUM ( unstructured[Size] ) - [SizeSizeWithoutDuplicates]

 

Does that make sense? 

I'm also thinking, wouldn't it be better to build a table with no duplicates and work with that? Or are you actually interested in the info from the duplicates?

 

Cheers

Re: Calculate the sum of Duplicate values from a Table

Hi @Anonymous

It's always better to show a sample of your data in text-tabular format in addition to (or instead of) a screen capture. Otherwise people trying to help cannot copy the data and work with it.

 

I'm curious. How did you do it for the count shown in the chart? I would think what you need for the Size column would follow the same logic as what you need for the count.

 

I would create a new calculated column  in your table in which you mark the rows that are duplicated. Probably the best option is to show how many times the row appears in the table. You can then use the column to easily tell apart the duplicates from the rest for whatever you need, for instance the SUM of Size.

 

NewColumn =
CALCULATE (
    COUNT ( Table1[Hash] ),
    ALLEXCEPT (
        Table1,
        Table1[Hash]
    )
)

In actual fact, if the duplicates are at the row level (i.e. the full row), the following ought to be valid too:

 

NewColumn = CALCULATE( COUNT(Table1[Hash]) )

since context transition will result in a filter on every column with the values in the current row. This, however, would be unnecessary if the hash alone uniquely defines a row and less efficient than the previous approach. Plus it would possibly fail if you add any other column to the table.

Re: Calculate the sum of Duplicate values from a Table

Hi AIB,

Sorry about that, i wasnt sure if there was any formatting for inserting tabular data here.  I can forward the entire pbix file if this helps, but i'm also not how to do this here.(i've copied the file to onedrive, see link below)

PBIX file

 

To count only the duplicate values i had to get the count the distinct hash values in the rows and then subtracted it from the total rows in the table.

Count_Duplicate = CALCULATE(COUNTROWS(unstructured) -COUNTROWS(DISTINCT(unstructured[Hash])))

 

so in my Stacked bar chart visual i am showing a count of the unique rows and a count of the duplicate rows per extension. i now want to do the same for the Size column, just not sure how to go about it yet

Re: Calculate the sum of Duplicate values from a Table

Thanks AIB,

 

this worked very well. i agree with you, creating a new table without duplicates is a good idea. Because its a cleanup job, i wanted to show how much data could be deleted and also highlight hotspots of areas where the value could be generated for cleanup purposes.

 

Thanks alot for your help
