Hi, power BI community. Need some favor to calculate number of workdays for each month for a certain year. Below is the link of the attached pbix file.

https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B0XwYvmbIN12M3ZLNlAwM0NVVFk/view?usp=sharing

In the file, i already have a mechanism to find out whether a certain day is holiday or not. Saturdays and sundays are considered holidays. In the resource time phased data table, working days column capture whether a certain a day is a working day or not (1 is a working day, 0 is a holiday).

There is also an "Is working" column in the date table. What i need to calculate is to get total working days for each month for a specific year. I tried to use working days= calculate(distinct count(resource demand timephased(working days) but its not working. Any prompt solution will be highly appreciated. Thanks

Regards

Hasan

You need to use the Year and Month from your Date table in your slicer. I have tested it, here is the report looks like.

Cretae a measure in Date table.

WorkingDay = CALCULATE(SUM('Date'[IsWorkDay]))

if a working day = 1 and a non one is 0 why can't you just sum it as opposed to doing a distinct count?

Hi. thanks for the quick reply. Yes I have summed but when i add the values to the table, it shows total value but when i create different table using values from data table, it works but i need it to work with the main table. here is the attached image of the situation. Thanks

@v-caliao-msft thanks a lot for the solution. I added month and date from the date table and it looks like this now. But is there a reason why the month and year from other tables are not working here? Thanks
