Hi, if the below is my Power BI desktop screen with table created, 

What measure can I use to calculate that there are 4 of the same materials in the table? showing next to each line as below.

The count column must show the result as 4 as below.

 

Material Number   Count

Thanks in advance 🙂

Hi @vicros ,

 

I did a test, the reference is as follows:

Table 2 =
SUMMARIZE (
    'Table',
    'Table'[Material Number   Count],
    "Count",
        CALCULATE (
            COUNT ( 'Table'[Material Number   Count] ),
            FILTER (
                ALL ( 'Table' ),
                MAX ( 'Table'[Material Number   Count] ) = 'Table'[Material Number   Count]
            )
        )
)

Hi @vicros ,

 

I did a test, please try the following formula:

M =
CALCULATE (
    COUNTROWS ( 'All Orders' ),
    FILTER ( ALL ( 'All Orders' ), 'All Orders'[Material Number ] = "39055xAJRE" )
)
table =
SUMMARIZE (
    'All Orders',
    'All Orders'[Index],
    "M",
        CALCULATE (
            MAX ( 'All Orders'[Material Number ] ),
            FILTER ( ALL ( 'All Orders' ), 'All Orders'[Material Number ] = "39055xAJRE" )
        ),
    "C", [Measure]
)


If the problem is still not resolved, please provide detailed error information and let me know immediately. Looking forward to your reply.

Best Regards,
Henry

Hi, Thank you, however, I don't only have one material to count, "39055xAJRE", but a list of materials.

Is there a solution for that?

Hi @vicros ,

 

I did a test, the reference is as follows:

            COUNT ( 'Table'[Material Number   Count] ),
            FILTER (
                ALL ( 'Table' ),
                MAX ( 'Table'[Material Number   Count] ) = 'Table'[Material Number   Count]
            )
        )
)

@vicros , try a measure like 

calculate(count(Table[material Number]), allexcept(Table, Table[material Number]))

@amitchandak   Hi, unfortunately, this did not work.  I have many of this material in my source data, but only 4 in my table data. I need to summarize so that the count only shows that of the material on the summarized table.
