Concatenate distinct values from column in Measure

Hello everyone,

 

I have the following table:

pbi1.png

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

What I need now is the summary by year, but I also want to concatenate the unique values in the column status.

This column can anyway just contain 2 values, but on the summary level I have to know if the column contains just "Value" or also "Another Value".

So the result should look like that:

Does anyone have an idea if this is possible?

 

Thank you and best regards

Hi @selimovd 

You can use DAX expression like below.

Measure = 
CONCATENATEX(
    VALUES(YourTable[First Status]),
    YourTable[First Status], ", "
)

Hello, 

 

I can't figure out why this approach doesn't work for me.  I have one table with just two fields, CallSign and Frequency.  I am creating a measure called AllFreq with the following equation AllFreq = CONCATONATEX(VALUES('FR'),'FR'[Frequency]," ,").  When I do a visual of CallSign and AllFreq, I get examples like this:  453.05 ,453.05 ,453.05 ,453.275 ,453.275 ,453.275 ,453.45 ,453.45 ,453.45 ,453.725 ,453.725 ,458.05 ,458.05 ,458.05 ,458.275 ,458.275 ,458.275 ,458.45 ,458.45 ,458.45 ,458.45 ,458.725 ,458.725. You can see there are many duplicates.  And, there's no differenece if I remove the VALUES function:  453.05 ,453.05 ,453.05 ,453.275 ,453.275 ,453.275 ,453.45 ,453.45 ,453.45 ,453.725 ,453.725 ,458.05 ,458.05 ,458.05 ,458.275 ,458.275 ,458.275 ,458.45 ,458.45 ,458.45 ,458.45 ,458.725 ,458.725.

 

Can someone help?  Is this old functionality that has since been updated?

 

Thanks,

Hi @josephjross2 

 

I think the problem is with VALUES( 'FR' ) - you passed a table as an argument but VALUES expected a column.

try this

Measure = 
CONCATENATEX( 
    VALUES( 'FR'[Frequency] ),
    'FR'[Frequency], ", "
)

Perfect!  Thanks so much @Mariusz !  I thought that had to be a whole table and not a single field.  I appreciate the response and the help!
