Best way to count rows based upon multiple column filter criteria

Hello,

 

I want to offer a user 3 optional drop downs (or filters) each one relates to a separate column in my table (Manager, Period, Region) A 4th Drop down (which will be mandatory) is a list of Skill scores (1 through 7) relating to a SKILL column in my table. So they will select a skill score and I want to count the number of rows for that skill in the SKILL column. However, they can use the 3 drop downs to filter further.  Problem is they might opt to choose any combination of the filters or none at all, leaving them at their default values.

 

I have tried to create some nested IF statements to CountIF the SKILL column but the code is getting huge and difficult to maintain. 

  

Can anyone think of a better way to acomplish this?

 

Thanks for any tips

Hi @winwell

 

What about CountRows(Filter(<datasource>, ((Filter1=Filter1)  && (Filter2 = Filter2) &&(Filter3 = Filter3)))

 

Regards

THanks but I already tried that.

 

The drop downs default value is "Select" so if left to the defaults, that kind of query doesn't work.I tried checking for the selected value and if it is "Select", count all rows and if there is a selected value include that drop down as a filter criteria, but then you have to cater for the other 2 drop downs and the combinations are many.

 

I might have to limit the user to just 2 filters (e.g Region and Period) at a time.
