Hi all, 

 

I have just started using BI and DAX. 

 

I have a column with yes and no within, I am trying to get a count of the yes and no's  using the following formula added into a new column; 

 

CALCULATE ( COUNTROWS (#"Table 2"); #"Table 2"[Compliance] = "Yes" )

 

and its telling me a token comma expected?

 

Can anyone advise please?

It should be like

CALCULATE ( COUNTROWS ('#Table 2'), '#Table 2'[Compliance] = "Yes" )

Or

CALCULATE ( COUNTROWS ('#Table 2'); '#Table 2'[Compliance] = "Yes" )

 

But I will advise that you type formula and table and column names and there will be suggested list select from there.

Do yourself a favour and remove the # in the table names (you can rename them easily). Your code would be more readable.

Also: using a CALCULATE in a calculated column (rather than a measure) does not really make much sense - except in specific uses cases. CALCULATE modifies the filter context and as you are in a row context you don't generally modifiy the filter.

Hi @Anonymous , 

Yes, as I know, we usually use #'xxx' in M code, If you want to this in DAX, I think you should use 'Table' directly, you could enter the first character in expression, then it will automatically show table or column which you could choose from, tehn you could get correct  table or column name. 

In addition, as mentioned above, when you use English, you should use "," instead of ";" in expression.

=CALCULATE ( COUNTROWS ('Table 2'),Table 2[Compliance] = "Yes" )

Hi,

 

If you are using PBI in english the separator in the formula shoudl the comme (,) and not semicolon (;).

 

Is it the solution ?

If yes mark it, otherwise please send a screenshot of your formula.

 

Have a nice day,
