Hello community, I need help to obtain a result based on a conditional SUM in the same column. I don't which is the easiest way, creating "custom column" or a measure.
I've the following table,
| DOCUMENT# | PRODUCT_STEP |
| 1234 | 1 |
| 1234 | 4 |
| 1234 | 8 |
What I want to create is a new column or measure to obtain a new result:
If "Document#" SUMS "5" then, "Product X", Otherwise, Product_step.
| DOCUMENT# | PRODUCT_STEP | PRODUCT TYPE
| 1234 | 1 | Product X
| 1234 | 4 | Product X
| 1234 | 8 | 8
The "document#" are mostly uniques but each of one of them can pass trough 2 or 3 "Product_steps", not that often but it can, and if it does, then it becomes in a diff type of product, which is what I need to identify creating a new column or measure.
I know that with this formula I'll have duplicates, but I cansimply divide the total outcome in 2 to have the exact number. Or if you can suggest a better way to do it, I'm all ears (eyes)
Important note: My tables are from a server, thus, I can't edit the structure that much.
Thanks a lot!!
In this scenario, you should create custom column to get the desired result. As in a measure, it is not possible to compare each item (DOCUMENT#) of one column with a specific value (Sums) insde IF function and return multiple values that can generate a column. The expected logic only applies to calculated column.
