Convert DAX to M (Variables, conditions, Filter, in, countrows)

New=
VAR NewPostcode =[Postcode]
VAR testCreated =[created date]
VAR testEnd = [Completion Date]
VAR MidLevel =[Mid_Level_Work]
RETURN

COUNTROWS(
FILTER(source, MidLevel IN {"one","two", "three"} && [Postcode] = NewPostcode && created date] >= testCreated && [Completion Date] <= testEnd ))

Hi  @Kosta88 ,

You can first use the if function to determine whether [MidLevel] contains {one,two,three} and [Postcode]=current [Postcode], etc.

if List.Contains({"one","two", "three"},[MidLevel])
then 1
else 0

In grouping to accumulate counts based on conditions:

Solved: Cumulative sum in Power query editor - Microsoft Power BI Community

Hi @Kosta88 ,

Use one of the filters in the conditional column (I used 2) to see the syntax, then add the rest of the conditions to the formula bar. You will have to use "and" and "or". Note that the key words are all lower case, and you have to write out "then" and "else."

 

Finally you will need to filter the table based on your new column.


Let me know if you have any questions.

Hi @Kosta88 
Where do your variables come from? Are they measures or columns? If they are measures this will not work.  If they are column headings, then this would be a conditional column in Power Query - it will allow you to do the multiple conditions.  Find this under Add Column tab.
Let me know if you have any questions.

Hi Nathaniel, thank you for the promt reply.

 

 

My variables are columns headings as you mentioned.

 

I have tried to go under transform data, addcolumn , custom column but I am not sure how to convert the DAX code to Power query syntax.

 

Could you please provide a sample code that could help me please.

 

Thank you again.
