## SUMX DAX Performance Issue

Hello, I am using a SUMX function in one of my calculation. It is completely degrading the performance of visual. Here is my calculation:

Dummy =
CALCULATE(
SUMX(DISTINCT(TBL[Account Name]),[Count])
)
In the above calculation count is a measure, which was calculated as follows:
CALCULATE(
DISTINCTCOUNT(TBL[SaleType])
)
Can you please suggest me a way to improve the performance?

Hello,

Thank you so much for your response. As SUMX is a iterator function, it is degrading the performance. I was helped by some other user with the following solution

`CountUnique = COUNTROWS(SUMMARIZE(TBL,TBL[Account Name],TBL[SaleType]))`

How about delete the "CALCULATE" in your formula to simplified it. Or try to create measure using DAX below.

Dummy = var d= DISTINCTCOUNT(TBL[SaleType])

return SUMX(DISTINCT(TBL[Account Name]),d)

You could refer to below blogs to optimize your DAX formula:

Tune your PowerPivot DAX query, don’t use the entire table in a FILTER and replace SUMX if possible

Nested SUMX or DAX Query?
