Help with Variables in new measure.

I am creating a measure with a few variables, lets call them VAR1, VAR2 and VAR3.  Next I want to count the number of rows of unique values in VAR2 and VAR3 so I used the code - 

 

COUNTROWS( INTERSECT( VAR2, VAR3))

 

Now I want to count the number of rows of unique values in VAR1 that are "Not" in VAR2 and VAR3. How do I go about this?

 

Thanks.

Hi @Chuky01 ,

 

You can use distinct (var a) to find the columns that are not repeated, and then judge with the result of COUNTROWS (INTERSECT( VAR2, VAR3)).


If the problem is still not resolved, please provide data model and the expected result you expect. Let me know immediately, looking forward to your reply.

Best Regards,
Henry

That's a question from The Set Theory, isn't it? Say you have 3 sets: A, B and C and you want to calculate A \ (B + C).... So, this is how you go about it 🙂 But maybe you want A \ (B * C)? The English statement above does not let one distinguish easily between those cases...
