Sum Value of multiple Categories

Hi All,

 

Does anyone know what is the dax measure to sum the value of two category?

 

This is my data set:

CategoryValue
A1
B2
C3
D4
E5

 

What I want to is to create a measure to sum Category A & B, which will return me with a result of 5.
I have tried "Total A&B = calculate(sum(Value),Category="A" && Category="B") ". However it return me with blank.

Please Help. 

 

Cheers,

Kev

Use a pipe instead of &. Your formula is saying it needs to be category A and B at the same time, rather than one or the other

Hi, @BigKev 

Please try something like below.

 

Total A&B = calculate(sum('Table'[Value]), 'Table'[Category] ="A" || 'Table'[Category]="B")
