## Counting text values in 2 different Calculated Columns

Hi,

I have 2 calculated Columns -> InFull = IF([ActualDuration]<[ScheduledDuration]*.85,"Not In Full","In Full")

Punctuality = IF (OTIF[DutyTimeFrom]<OTIF[TimeFrom]-1/24*.25,"Early",IF (OTIF[DutyTimeFrom]>OTIF[TimeFrom]+1/24*.25,"Late","On Time"))

I need to add the total number of times that the text 'In Full' appears & "On Time". I only want to add them if both appear.

@android1 This should work...

```In Full & On Time =
COUNTROWS (
FILTER ( 'OTIF', 'OTIF'[Punctuality] = "On Time" && 'OTIF'[InFull] = "In Full" )
)```

Try this:

`InFullOnTime = CALCULATE(COUNT([SomeColumn]),FILTER(OTIF,OTIF[InFull] = "In Full"),FILTER(OTIF,OTIF[Punctuality] = "On Time"))`

Thanks for your reply. Can I use Count when dealing with strings? Getting the error attached.

Can you explain what column [Some Column] should refer to? I tried referencing both [In Full] & [Punctuality]

with no joy.

@android1 you could also just create a Matirx and use a simple Measure like in the picture

Countrows = COUNTROWS('Table')

Hi Sean,

I was sure when I saw your && suggestion that it was something I had already tried.

But whatever, yours works perfectly. The Matrix option is very interesting.

Thanks a million for this.
