## Calculate with OR/AND/NOT in filter

It's unclear to me how I can use FILTER() in a CALCULATE() function, and apply an AND / OR / NOT logic.

Could you please refer to an existing help page or give examples here below? Thanks.

I’ll give an example as below. Assuming we have a table like below. If we want to get the total sales of China on July, we can use following formula.

```SalesFromChina_July =
CALCULATE (
SUM ( Table1[Sales] ),
FILTER ( Table1, AND ( Table1[Country] = "China", MONTH ( Table1[Date] ) = 7 ) )
)```

If we want to get the total sales of China and USA on July and August, we can use following formula.

```SalesFromChina_OR_USA =
CALCULATE (
SUM ( Table1[Sales] ),
FILTER ( Table1, OR ( Table1[Country] = "China", Table1[Country] = "USA" ) )
)```

If we want to get the total sales of India on July and August, we can use following formula.

```SalesFromIndia =
CALCULATE (
SUM ( Table1[Sales] ),
FILTER (
Table1,
NOT (
OR ( Table1[Country] = "China", Table1[Country] = "USA" )
)
)
)```

This is very useful. However, I am trying to apply different targets to different months based on last years totals. So if month is September then add 70% to last years total, if month is October then 80 % to last year etc, then the months after that should be the same as last year. I have looked everywhere and cannot find the logic to do this. Any help would be great Helper I

Thanks. This is very clear.

To do an AND, you should create 2 filter statements, one for each.

=CALCULATE([measure],filter(),filter())

for an OR, do it like this

=CALCULATE([measure],filter(table,table[col1] = "X" || table[col2] = "Y"))

note this is not overly efficient, but it is how you do it. (working on 2 columns at once can be inefficient.

for NOT, you can use teh NOT() function around your tests

Hope that helps
