Re: Calculate with filters and Contaimstring with OR

Hi,

 

Can you try the below function?

Count_string =
CALCULATE (
COUNTROWS ( 'Table' ),
CONTAINSSTRING ( Table[Column], "XXXX" )
|| CONTAINSSTRING ( Table[Column], "YYYY" )
)

Appreciate a Kudos! 🙂
If this helps and resolves the issue, please mark it as a Solution! 🙂

Re: Calculate with filters and Contaimstring with OR

Hi, @Portrek 

 

Based on your description, I assume that you want to count rows which contains specific words and get the text which excludes the specific words. I created data to reproduce your scenario. The pbix file is attached in the end.

Table:

You may create two measures as below.

CountRecords = 
COUNTROWS(
    FILTER(
        ALL('Table'),
        CONTAINSSTRINGEXACT('Table'[Text],"XXXX")||
        CONTAINSSTRINGEXACT('Table'[Text],"YYYY")||
        CONTAINSSTRINGEXACT('Table'[Text],"ZZZZ")
    )
)

Result = 
var _text = SELECTEDVALUE('Table'[Text])
return
SWITCH(
    TRUE(),
    CONTAINSSTRINGEXACT(_text,"XXXX"),
    SUBSTITUTE(_text,"XXXX",""),
    CONTAINSSTRINGEXACT(_text,"YYYY"),
    SUBSTITUTE(_text,"YYYY",""),
    CONTAINSSTRINGEXACT(_text,"ZZZZ"),
    SUBSTITUTE(_text,"ZZZZ","")
)

 

Result:
