## How can I add a function similar to COUNTIF in Power BI?

I have a unique problem that I am trying to solve.  I am working on a report that counts stores with different types of beverages. I am trying to get a distinct count of stores that are selling 4 or more Powerade flavors and two or more Coca-Cola flavors while maintaining a count of stores that are purchashing other products (Sprite, Dr. Pepper, etc.).

My data table is BEVSALES and the data looks like:

```CustomerNo     Brand     Flavor
43         PWD    Fruit Punch
37      Coca-Cola    Vanilla
43         PWD     Mixed Bry
37      Coca-Cola    Cherry
44        Sprite   Tropical Mix
43         PWD     Strawberry
43         PWD       Grape
44      Coca-Cola    Cherry
17      Dr. Pepper   Cherry```

I am trying to make the data give me a distinct count of customers with filters that have PWD>=4 and Coca-Cola>=2, while keeping the customer count of Dr. Pepper and Sprite at 1 each. (1 customer purchasing PWD, 1 customer Purchasing Coca-Cola, etc.)

The best measure that I have been able to find is

= SUMX(BEVSALES, 1*(FIND("PWD",BEVSALES[Brand],,0)))

but I don't know how to put it together so the formula counts the stores that have more than 4 PWD and 2 Coca-Cola flavors. I am thinking it is something to the effect of

`CALCULATE(DISTINCTCOUNT(BEVSALES[CustomerNo]), SUM(BEVSALES[Flavor] = "Fruit Punch"||BEVSALES[Flavor] = "Mixed Bry"||BEVSALES[Flavor] = "Strawberry"||BEVSALES[Flavor] = "Grape")>=4)`

However, that formula returns an error.

Does anyone have any ideas that would work better than what I have been able to come up with?

Hi,

Try this measure

=COUNTROWS(FILTER(SUMMARIZE(VALUES(Data[CustomerNo]),Data[CustomerNo],"ABCD",CALCULATE(COUNTROWS(Data),Data[Brand]="PWD"),"EFGH",CALCULATE(COUNTROWS(Data),Data[Brand]="Coca-Cola")),[ABCD]>=4&&[EFGH]>=2))

Hope this helps.

## Re: How can I add a function similar to COUNTIF in Power BI?

Thanks for the quick reply. I tried the formula in and it came back blank. Any idea why it would come back blank?

Edit: It seems like the formula is coming back blank because I need exact wording. Is there a way to do a variable in case the data has a space included somewhere?

Hi,

Use the TRIM function in a calculated column to get rid of the extra spaces.

Hi tnelson,

I am not sure your detailed requirement, so if possible, could you please inform me more detailed information (your expecting output)?

In addition, you could try below measure to get distinct count

```Measure 2 =
CALCULATE (
DISTINCTCOUNT ( test[Flavor] ),
ALLEXCEPT ( test, test[customerno], test[brand] )
)
```

You said you willget blank when use below measure

`=COUNTROWS(FILTER(SUMMARIZE(VALUES(Data[CustomerNo]),Data[CustomerNo],"ABCD",CALCULATE(COUNTROWS(Data),Data[Brand]="PWD"),"EFGH",CALCULATE(COUNTROWS(Data),Data[Brand]="Coca-Cola")),[ABCD]>=4&&[EFGH]>=2))`

You could try to change this to below(use "or" in measure)

`=COUNTROWS(FILTER(SUMMARIZE(VALUES(Data[CustomerNo]),Data[CustomerNo],"ABCD",CALCULATE(COUNTROWS(Data),Data[Brand]="PWD"),"EFGH",CALCULATE(COUNTROWS(Data),Data[Brand]="Coca-Cola")),[ABCD]>=4||[EFGH]>=2))`

## Re: How can I add a function similar to COUNTIF in Power BI?

Here is what I am looking for:

In the table below it shows customer #43 sells 4 flavors of PWD.

```CustomerNo     Brand     Flavor
43         PWD    Fruit Punch
37      Coca-Cola    Vanilla
43         PWD     Mixed Bry
37      Coca-Cola    Cherry
44        Sprite   Tropical Mix
43         PWD     Strawberry
43         PWD       Grape
44      Coca-Cola    Cherry
17      Dr. Pepper   Cherry```

I want customer 43 to be counted as 1 outlet selling 4 flavors of PWD. Since the outlet would probably be selling other brands and flavors, I would like for it to also include the other brands and flavors.

When I do this in Excel, I can do a function:

`=COUNTIFS('POWERADE 32z Detail'!A:A,Summary!A5,'POWERADE 32z Detail'!AC:AC,">=4")`

Where Excel counts the outlet only if it is selling 4 or more flavors. I cannot figure out how to do a function similar to this in Power BI.

In short, I am looking for a distinct count of customers that are sellling 4 or more distinct flavors of PWD. I don't want Power BI to count the outlet if it doesn't have 4 or more PWD flavors.

Hopefully this explanation makes more sense.

Hi tnelson,

Did you want to only show 43 in  table? If so, you could set filter on measure

## Re: How can I add a function similar to COUNTIF in Power BI?

Not quite.

I am trying to track progess with certain criteria. So if an outlet is selling 2 Coca-Cola, 1 Sprite, and 4 PWD flavors then I need a function that can count the outlet based on that criteria. I am looking for a function that tells Power BI to count an outlet under a Coca-Cola column (ONLY if the outlet is selling 2 Coca-Cola flavors) and then count an outlet under a PWD column (ONLY if the outlet is selling 4 PWD flavors).

Here is a shortened explanation of what I am looking for:

The table below has a count of flavors being sold by brand and how many flavors each customer is carrying.

```CustomerNo     Brand     Number of Flavors
37         PWD              6
37      Coca-Cola           3
43         PWD              2
43      Coca-Cola           1
43        Sprite            1
44         PWD              5
45         PWD              7
47      Coca-Cola           2
47        Sprite            1```

I am looking to find a way that will count the number of outlets selling each brand by number of flavors. The table would look like this:

```                                        PWD (4 or more)         Coca-Cola (2 or more)       Sprite
Outlets Selling                              3                          2                      2```

Where customers 37, 44, and 45 are selling 4+ PWD; customers 37 and 47 are selling 2+ Coca-Cola; and customers 43 and 47 are selling Sprite.

The function would need to count every outlet selling 4+ PWD, 2+ Coca-Cola, and 1+ Sprite. Does that make a little more sense?
