sum of values in a Text type field

I have a table which has some string and some numeric values. Becuase of string values the type of the field is Text.

 

SeriesFilesValue
IAabc
IAabc
IB2
IB2
IC3
IC3
IIAabc
IIB5
IIB5
IIC3
IIC3


I want to create a measure that filters out text fields and calculates the sum of Distinct values by Files group by Series for numeric values. So here the expected outcome would be:

 

SeriesCountExplanation
I5Distinct of B + Distinct of C (2+3)
II8Distinct of B + Distinct of C (5+3)

Re: sum of values in a Text type field

@abhay03

 

Hi, try this:

 

To a better explanation i create columns :

 

1: Two calculated Columns:

 

IsText = IF(ISERROR(VALUE(Table1[Value])),"Text","Number")

ValuetoNumber = IF(Table1[IsText]="Number",VALUE(Table1[Value]))

 

2. A measure to SUM

 

Measure =
SUMX (
    SUMMARIZE (
        'Table1',
        'Table1'[Series],
        'Table1'[Files],
        "ValueX", AVERAGE ( Table1[ValuetoNumber] )
    ),
    [ValueX]
)

Re: sum of values in a Text type field

Thanks @Vvelarde,

 

you are just missing a comma after SUMMARIZE function in the measure. Your solution worked perfectly for me.
