    Double-Counting with different Measure Names?

    Nathan Jones

           I've got some data that looks like the below table.


           What I'm looking for is a method to tally the number of questions in which 'diversity' appears in ANY index, for example.


      QuestionIndex 1Index 2Index 3


      So, COUNT(Diversity) (well, the calculation that's analogous to that) should be equal to 5.


      The below logic seems like it's almost there, except it only counts each row once.


      if [Index 1] = "Facility"

      OR [Index 2] = "Facility"

      OR [Index 3] = "Facility"

      THEN "Facility"


      elseif [Index 1] = "Diversity"

      OR [Index 2] = "Diversity"

      OR [Index 3] = "Diversity"

      THEN "Diversity"


      ELSEIF  [Index 1] = "Leadership"

      OR [Index 2] = "Leadership"

      OR [Index 3] = "Leadership"

      THEN "Leadership"


      ELSEIF  [Index 1] = "Overall"

      OR [Index 2] = "Overall"

      OR [Index 3] = "Overall"

      THEN "Overall"




      But only counts each line once.  Any idea of how to get the double-tally going so that they can appear in the same graph?  I could make 3 separate graphs but it complicates things for filters and connectivity.

          The problem is that each row can only evaluate to true once.

          For what you're trying to do, you really need to look into pivoting your data so you have one row per Index.


          You could create a calculated field per index i.e.

          COUNT(IF [Index 1]="Diversity" then [Index 1] end)


          COUNT(IF [Index 2]="Diversity" then [Index 1] end)


          COUNT(IF [Index 3]="Diversity" then [Index 1] end)


          then include this in your report using the measure names and measure values pills, but I'm not sure if that will work in your real scenario.
