Count occurrence in SharePoint List based on 4 filters.


I have a SharePoint List where I like to count the occurrence of several values in four different columns.

Example SharePoint List:

Name column (ColumnType)Stretcher (Yes/No)OxygenTransit (Yes/No)OxygenFlight (Choices)OxygenConnectingFlight (Choices)
 NoYes3 x ws1202 x ws120



 YesYes1 x ws120 
 NoYes5 x ws1203 x ws120


I like to get the totals in a variable, one for each.


I started with a Get Items, to get all items from the list (from last month). I now I can apply a filter in the Get Items action. But I need to apply three different filters. So I was hoping I could just do one Get Items and the apply the filter in the Initialize Variable action. I am just not really familiar with how to compose the formulas correctly.


So far I have this function, that counts all items and works fine:








Can someone please help me to extend this formula to filter by occurrences of "Yes" in the "Stretcher" column and an other formula to filter by occurrences of something (is not blank) in the "OxygenFlight" column?


Thank you!


This is what I have so far:



Hi @Power_Robert 


The Get Items action contains a filter field, you can check on the following example:

You can create 3 Get Items actions and enter the filtering and then you can use the formula that you already have to get the number of occurrences in each case.


Best Regards

Hi @chsanche ,

Thank you.

I was aware of this option. I just thought it would be more efficient to query the data source once and then apply the filter at the variable.


Is there still a way to do it as described in the first post?

This is what I have now. But the part in the orange box, seems a bit overkill to me. It is all from the same data source, just a slightly different filter.


Isn't there a way to solve this in a formula during variable initialization?
