Hi @mmoroni ,

 

Based on your description, you can create a calculated column as follows.

Column = CALCULATE(SUM(channel[Total Min]),'channel'[Channel #]<>1000,ALLEXCEPT(channel,channel[Channel Name],channel[Date]))
Result:

Do you want to match columns between two different tables? If so, you can try the LOOKUPVALUE() function.

 

Hope that's what you were looking for.

Best Regards,

Hi @mmoroni ,

 

I added the data in the screenshot and tested it. The DAX function of a calculated column is the same as mentioned above.

Is the following result what you want?

([only "29"+"529"]+[same date"12/29/2020"]+[same channel "ESPN MD"]----->1379+66497=67876)

Well......  call me silly.  I must have had something wrong in my trial of the formula.

Combined channel name Total Mins = CALCULATE(SUM('Viewership_By_Day_-_Monthly'[Total Min]),'Viewership_By_Day_-_Monthly'[Channel #]<>1000,ALLEXCEPT('Viewership_By_Day_-_Monthly','Viewership_By_Day_-_Monthly'[Channel Name],'Viewership_By_Day_-_Monthly'[Date]))

  Looks like it is working the way I need it.  Thank you!

Not quite...  Perhaps my example should be more clear.  So my apologies on that.

In the below, we see Channel # 29, 529, 1000 - All for ESPN HD and all on the same DATE (12/29/2020).

I would like the new column to add the Total Min for 29 and 529 (based on the channel name) when they are both on the same date.  But EXCLUDE counting in channel number 1000 - even though its the same name and the same date.
So... Calculate(SUM(IF( Channel name = earlier (channel name) AND(Date = Earlier(date), except if channel number <>1000.

Hi @mmoroni 

Calculate(sum('table'[total min]), allexcept('table','table'[channel name]),'table'[channel name]<> 1000)

Not quite there.  I need that if the DATE is the same, AND the channel name is the same, to sum the minutes.  But thank you for the valiant try.
