Calendar with daily counter of students placed

Hi everyone,


I'm very new to Power BI and wondered if anyone can help translating an Excel file into Power BI. I've got two tables, I'll call them  Students and Calendar. I need to show how many students are placed in a particular team on each day of the month. 



Student_nameTeam_name Start_date End_date
Student ATeam 104/08/202110/08/2021
Student BTeam 107/08/202109/08/2021
Student CTeam 206/08/202111/08/2021


Now I need to create a Power BI report that looks like below, each row is a placement and in the calendar section each number is a count of students in placement on that day. 

Team 11122210 
Team 20111111 


The calendar table has a column called Date:

Calendar = CALENDAR( DATE(2021,1,1), TODAY())


Now I'm trying to add a new column to the table that adds the number for each day but it doesn't seem to work:

StudentsPerDay= COUNTROWS(FILTER('Student', 'Student'[Start_date] >= 'Calendar'[Date] && 'Student'[End_date] <='Calendar'[Date]


The formula doesn't give any errors though no values are added where there should be values.


Any ideas?


Many many thanks!
