Sum numeric values using filters

Hello,

I have two columns PAR_Hours which are numeric values and PAR_Codes which are text values. I need to sum all hours for specific codes (LN, LD and DR)

I tried using several versions of this formula to no avail, results are always blank.

 

CALCULATETABLE(VALUES(Absenteeism[PAR_HOURS]),filter(Absenteeism,Absenteeism[PAR_CODE]="LN"&"LD"&"DR"))
 
CALCULATE(SUM(Absenteeism[PAR_HOURS]),Absenteeism[PAR_CODE]="LN",Absenteeism[PAR_CODE]="LD",Absenteeism[PAR_CODE]="DR")

Re: Sum numeric values using filters

Hi,

Try this measure

=CALCULATE(SUM(Absenteeism[PAR_HOURS]),Absenteeism[PAR_CODE]="LN"||Absenteeism[PAR_CODE]="LD"||Absenteeism[PAR_CODE]="DR")

Hope this helps.

Try

CALCULATETABLE(VALUES(Absenteeism[PAR_HOURS]),filter(Absenteeism,Absenteeism[PAR_CODE] in {"LN","LD","DR"}))
OR
CALCULATETABLE(VALUES(Absenteeism[PAR_HOURS]),filter(all(Absenteeism),Absenteeism[PAR_CODE] in {"LN","LD","DR"}))

Re: Sum numeric values using filters

It didn't work, got an error:

MdxScript (Model 8, 37)...A table of multiple values was supplied where a single value was expected.

Re: Sum numeric values using filters

Hi @lc1 ,

 

Try this measure:

 

Measure=
CALCULATE(
    SUM(Absenteeism[PAR_HOURS]),
    FILTER(
        Absenteeism,
        Absenteeism[PAR_CODE] in {"LN", "LD", "DR"}
    )
)

OR

Measure1=
CALCULATE(
    SUM(Absenteeism[PAR_HOURS]),
    FILTER(
       ALL(Absenteeism),
        Absenteeism[PAR_CODE] in {"LN", "LD", "DR"}
    )
)

 

"MdxScript (Model 8, 37)...A table of multiple values was supplied where a single value was expected."

VALUES(Absenteeism[PAR_HOURS]) will return a single column table, however, you what you created is a measure, so the program reports an error.

VALUES() function
