# MDX - How to SUM a calculated measure - only if value is greater than a given value say 1000

• ### Question

• Hi

I have a measure group with an [Amount] - currency measure.

I want to create a calculated measure to SUM the [Amount] - but ONLY those where the individual [Amount]'s are greater than a specific value such as 1000.

How can I build a measure to SUM with an IF statement?

• So modify the syntax of MDX query like this.

```CREATE MEMBER CURRENTCUBE.[Measures].[CountNew]
AS
SUM(
FILTER
(
EXCEPT([Period].[Period].MEMBERS,[Period].[Period].[ALL]),
[Measures].[Contract Count] >= 1
),[Measures].[Contract Count]
)

,
VISIBLE = 1  ; ```

Best Regards,

Will

• Hi

I have this exact requirement ...

the first measure 'Contract Count' is the actual measures in my measure group.

In this case I have only two measure records

1. 2019/01 for group A

2. 2019/03 for group B

I am trying to build an MDX calculated measure called [Count] (seen in 2nd column) that will carry the measures in the measure group 'forward'

2019/01 - should have a Count 1 but only for A

2019/02 - should have a Count 1 but only for A

2019/03 - should have a Count 1 but only for B

2019/04 - should have a Count 1 but only for B

2019/05 - should have a Count 1 but only for B

2019/06 - should have a Count 1 but only for B

2019/07 - should have a Count 1 but only for B

Hi Coetzer,

You could build a measure like this.

```CREATE MEMBER [CubeName].[Measures].[ConditionAmount]
AS
SUM(FILTER([DimensionName].[AttributeName].MEMBERS,[Measures].[Amount]>1000),[Measures].[Amount])```

Will

• I tried your suggestion Will but the results are strange:

It returns a number of 4?

```CREATE MEMBER CURRENTCUBE.[Measures].[CountNew]
AS
SUM(
FILTER
(
[Period].[Period].MEMBERS,
[Measures].[Contract Count] >= 1
),[Measures].[Contract Count]
)

,
VISIBLE = 1  ; ```

• Hi I.W Coetzer,

Please show us the result of the following MDX query.

```SELECT
[Measures].[Contract Count] ON 0,
FILTER
(
[Period].[Period].MEMBERS,
[Measures].[Contract Count] >= 1
) ON 1
FROM CUBENAME```

Best Regards,

Will

• Hi Will

Please see below - P.S I have to filter on one contract number specifically since I was doing that in my original result.
