Sum a value within a subset of DistinctCount

New Contributor

In a Pivot Table is there a way to Sum a value within a Distinct Count?


I am trying to find out the total number of days for patients who have been hospitalized for at least 1 day. I filtered by Days > 0 and did a DistinctCount on the Patient ID (because there are multiple records for the same patient) but the Sum of Days is for everyone, not just the Distinct Count.


Thank you for your assistance.

@Anne_LaMar , I didn't catch what do you mean under the sum for distinct count. You may apply Distinct count to patients and receive how many unique patients do you have. If you sum days, it'll be summed for every patient. Perhaps you may attach small sample to illustrate what you'd like to calculate.

I think I figured out another way to determine total Days. Thank you.
