Help with if statement for different values in other columns

I have a dataset below:

 

LocationNameageincome
UKxteenlow
UKxadultlow
UKyteenhigh
USAzadultlow
USAzadulthigh

 

I want to point out mistakes in the dataset where for one person ( ie x or z), the age or income columns are not the same (when they should be)

 

I want to end up with a table visual in powerbi whereby it points out the discrepancy 

 

LocationNameDiscrepancy found?
UKXY
UKYN
USAZY

 

What dax can i use to do this?

Hi @helpme ,

According to your description, here's my solution. Create a measure.

Discrepancy found? =
IF (
    COUNTROWS (
        FILTER (
            ALL ( 'Table' ),
            'Table'[Location] = MAX ( 'Table'[Location] )
                && 'Table'[Name] = MAX ( 'Table'[Name] )
                && (
                    'Table'[age] <> MAX ( 'Table'[age] )
                        || 'Table'[income] <> MAX ( 'Table'[income] )
                )
        )
    ) > 0,
    "Yes",
    "No"
)

Get the correct result:

@helpme ,

 

Create a Calculated Column as shown below...

 

Discrepancy =

IF (
    CALCULATE (
        COUNT ( 'Table'[income] ),
        FILTER (
            'Table',
            'Table'[Location] = EARLIER ( 'Table'[Location] )
                && 'Table'[Name] = EARLIER ( 'Table'[Name] )
        )
    ) > 1,
    IF (
        DISTINCTCOUNT ( 'Table'[age] ) > 1
            || DISTINCTCOUNT ( 'Table'[income] ) > 1,
        "Y"
    ),
    "N"
)

Hi ddpl,

 

Thanks for submitting this, unfortunately it doesn't work as it doesn't fulfil the requirement of being able to indicate which ones have the same location & name, but different values for income or age.

 

If it helps, there will only ever be "teen" or "adult" values for age, and with Income it will only be "High", Low" or "N/a"

@helpme ,

 

can you share slightly more data with expected result.
