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.

Re: Calculate with OR/AND/NOT in filter

@jesuisbenjamin

 

I’ll give an example as below. Assuming we have a table like below.

Calculate with ORANDNOT in filter_1.jpg

 

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" )
        )
    )
)

Re: Calculate with OR/AND/NOT in filter

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
