Combined Totals from multiple columns

Hi,

 

I am trying to create a DAX formula that combined totals from multiple columns ( Type 1 & Type 2 from table) that I can later visualise in a chart. 

 

#Name Type 1Type 2
1BulbasaurGrassPoison
2IvysaurGrassPoison
3VenusaurGrassPoison
4CharmanderFire 
5CharmeleonFire 
6CharizardFireFlying
7SquirtleWater 
8WartortleWater 
9BlastoiseWater 
23EkansPoison 
24ArbokPoison 

 

An example of what the totals would look like would be:

 

TypeTotal
Grass3
Fire3
Water3
Poison5
Flying1

 

Any help is much appreciated,

 

Thanks

Hi,

Using the Query Editor, select the first 2 columns > right click > Unpivot other columns.  Now build a table visual and drag Attribute to the visual.  Use this measure

=COUNTROWS(Data)

Hope this helps.
