Check if all entries in a table column are the same

Ive been searching for a formula to check if all items in a given column in a table are identical. Eg:

 

COLUMN1

Apple

Apple

Apple

 

This situation would return 'true'

 

COLUMN2

Apple

Peara

Apple

 

This situation would return 'false'. 

 

I appreciate this is a pretty simple request, but I have no idea how to do it...ideas? Thanks.

You can COUNTROWS of the unique entries in a column with this function. When it returns true the same value was used for the entire column.

CountRows(Distinct(your_datasource_name,your_column_name))=1
