DistinctCount with filters

Hi everyone,

Hoping I could have help on the below issue.

I would like to calculate the distinct company ids whose actuals are higher than a fixed value (X)

Here's the formula I used:

ActivePartnerCount = IFERROR(CALCULATE( DISTINCTCOUNT(vTable1[CompanyID]),filter(vTable1,vTable1[Actuals]>X)),0)

If the fixed value(X) is 0, then the formulation is working, but not for other values.

Re: DistinctCount with filters

Hi @ozlemv,

You use the IFERROR function in your formula, you create a calculated column based on my understanding.

IFERROR(A,B) := IF(ISERROR(A), B, A)

The following sub-formula in your formula is right. When the vTable1[Actuals]>X is ture, it will return a value, if the value of vTable1[Actuals] is 0, it will return 0, so the formula will return 0.

`CALCULATE( DISTINCTCOUNT(vTable1[CompanyID]),filter(vTable1,vTable1[Actuals]>X))`

As @Mi2n posted, you will get the expected result using the solution given.

If you have any other issue, please describe it clearly and sample data for further analysis.

Best Regards,

Hi @ozlemv

How do you calculate your Fixed value 'X'?

Because it is fixed, you do not necessarily need filter function.

If X is fixed:

CALCULATE( DISTINCTCOUNT(vTable1[CompanyID]), vTable1[Actuals]>X) works and is exactly equivalent to

CALCULATE( DISTINCTCOUNT(vTable1[CompanyID]), Filter( All( vTable1[Actuals] , vTable1[Actuals]>X) )

Yes I don't see anything wrong with the Measure!

However I agree with @Datatouille we don't really know what X is - do you hardcode a number? If so it should work.

Re: DistinctCount with filters

My guess is, you have a calculated value for X instead of a fixed value. Is that right?

Hi all,

Actually X is a fixed number. Let's say it's 10000. The formulation is working when X equals to zero, but not with any other number.
