## Measure - Sum distinct values another column ID

Hi,

Is there a good way to Sum these Distinct values in a measure? Similar toa measure similar to: Calculate(sum(Table[Amount Billed]))

Calculate(sum(

Table[Amount Billed])

)

I want the Bill ID to only to count each of those fact columns once "Amount Billed", "Sales Tax", "Enviromental Charge" But sum it up in a measure that I can branch off with other calculations. Is there a better way to do this? Or is this data bad?

Totals Being

Amount Billed = 1,579 +1,566+1,377 +1,356 + 1,348 = \$7,226

Sales Tax = 144.85 +0+126.48+0+123.7 = \$395.03

Thanks!!

Trevor

Hi, @TrevorBoat

There are too many duplicate data in your table.

It is recommended to select columns ("Amount Billed", "Sales Tax", "Enviromental Charge") and then delete the duplicate values in "Transform Data",

You can sum distinct values values based on the columns in the new table.

You can also try formula as below:

``````Total Amount Billed =
var tab=SUMMARIZE('Table','Table'[ID],'Table'[Amount Billed],'Table'[Sales Tax],'Table'[environment charge])
return SUMX(tab,'Table'[Amount Billed])``````
``````Total Sales Tax =
var tab=SUMMARIZE('Table','Table'[ID],'Table'[Amount Billed],'Table'[Sales Tax],'Table'[environment charge])
return SUMX(tab,'Table'[Sales Tax])``````

Please check my sample file for more details.

This does look like the data has been duplicated multiple times. You might want to investigate that. But if the data is as expected you could sum the distinct values using a measure like this.

``````Distinct Amount Billed =
VAR _DistinctAmountBilled = VALUES('Table'[Amount Billed])
return SUMX(_DistinctAmountBilled,'Table'[Amount Billed])``````
