Level of Detail Calculation

How do I achieve the Desired Calculation below (assume this is the entire table)? The calculation would be a sum of [# Students] fixed to the level of [Campus].

 

In Tableau, the calculation would be {FIXED [Campus] : SUM( [# Students] ) }.

Create a measure:

 

Fixed # = CALCULATE(
	SUM(Table4[#Students]), 
	ALLEXCEPT(Table4, Table4[Campus])
)

Hope this helps

Re: Level of Detail Calculation

Shoot, I oversimplified my example. So assume that [Campus] and [# Students] are in two different tables (I know that would be unecessary, but play along). The calculation you provided would not work in that case.

Re: Level of Detail Calculation

How are [Students] and [Campus] related in the model?

Re: Level of Detail Calculation

Let me start over. Take the single table on the left. How do I count the number of students (fixed per campus) even when the data is being split by grade level? My follow up question is how to do a unique count?

Re: Level of Detail Calculation

For the fixed #, its the same basic code, just using COUNT instead of SUM

 

Fixed # = CALCULATE(
	COUNT(Table4[Student ID]), 
	ALLEXCEPT(Table4, Table4[Campus])
)

What do you mean by "unique count" ?
