using OR in a measure

Hello

 

I have the following measure that calculates the number of students who have made progress. For the 'Entry Grade Mapping' I want to include students if they are "BTEC only" or " Mixed BTEC and A-Levels" but I am not sure how to write this. Can anyone help? Thank you very much

 

BTEC + Progression all years = CALCULATE ([Total students], 'Table1' [Collaborative Provision Indicator]="Non-collaborative", 'Table1' [Course length 1 year or less]="No", 'Table1' [Program level]="No UG ", 'Table1' [Course Mode (FT / PT)] =" Full Time ", 'Table1' [Entry Route] =" UCAS / GTTR ", 'Table1' [EU Overseas Home Residence] =" Home ", Table1 [Entry Qualification Mapping] ="BTEC Only" )

@claret_mug Maybe:

BTEC + Progression all years =
CALCULATE (
    [Total students],
    'Table1'[Collaborative Provision Indicator] = "Non-collaborative",
    'Table1'[Course length 1 year or less] = "No",
    'Table1'[Program level] = "No UG ",
    'Table1'[Course Mode (FT / PT)] = " Full Time ",
    'Table1'[Entry Route] = " UCAS / GTTR ",
    'Table1'[EU Overseas Home Residence] = " Home ",
    OR(Table1[Entry Qualification Mapping] = "BTEC Only", Table1[Entry Qualification Mapping] = "Mixed BTEC and A-Levels")
)

The most important parts are:
1. Sample data as text, use the table tool in the editing bar
2. Expected output from sample data
3. Explanation in words of how to get from 1. to 2.

Try:

BTEC + Progression all years = 
CALCULATE (
    [Total students], 
    'Table1' [Collaborative Provision Indicator]="Non-collaborative", 
    'Table1' [Course length 1 year or less]="No", 
    'Table1' [Program level]="No UG ", 
    'Table1' [Course Mode (FT / PT)] =" Full Time ", 
    'Table1' [Entry Route] =" UCAS / GTTR ", 
    'Table1' [EU Overseas Home Residence] =" Home ", 
     Table1 [Entry Qualification Mapping] ="BTEC only" || AND([Entry Qualification Mapping] ="Mixed BTEC","A-Levels") 
)

@Greg_Deckler thank you so much, this has worked. I was putting the 'OR' in the wrong place when I attempted it. Thanks for saving me from an afternoon of pain 🙂 

@claret_mug - No problem. @Fowmy 's solution should work as well. Double pipe ( || ) is an OR operator and probably works like you were expecting OR function to work!
