Count rows measure not counting total properly

Hi Power Bi Community, 

 

i created a measure that counts rows of when a "status" column = 5, and the same thing when the status = 9Capture9.PNG

I want to subtract the count of s5 from count of s9 so i created another measure called subtract. however sometimes the count of s5 is null and returns to me (0-1= -1). i created another measure with an if statement below: 

Measure = IF('quotelog (2)'[Count of S5]-'quotelog (2)'[Count of S9]=-1,0,'quotelog (2)'[Count of S5]-'quotelog (2)'[Count of S9]) 
 
it worked nicely: Capturef.PNG

but the totals are still the same... what i am trying to do is the following: 

 

Sum the count of s5 per employee BUT only subtract "count of s9" when count of s5 is not null.  so for alexi's case i would like the true sum of the column "measure" which is actually 1+0+1+1+1+0+1+1=6Capture88.PNG

Hi @Melmehal , you can try this one:

 

1. Create a calculated column:

 

 

Counts_Col = 
var x = CALCULATE(COUNT(quotelog[status]), quotelog[status] = "S5", quotelog[quote] = EARLIER(quotelog[quote]))
var y = CALCULATE(COUNT(quotelog[status]), quotelog[status] = "S9", quotelog[quote] = EARLIER(quotelog[quote]))
return IF(ISBLANK(x),0,x-y)
 
 
2. Create a measure:
Total-S5&S9 = SUM(quotelog[Counts_Col])

@Melmehal ,

 

Could you please clarify more details and show the sample data and expected result?

Hi Jimmy, 

 

I just need the column called measure to sum up to 6 instead of 5
