Distinctcount filtered by measure

Hi,

 

I want to use the following expression:

Partners pos Delta = CALCULATE(DISTINCTCOUNT('Store Performance'[Customer Partner Name]),FILTER('Store Performance',[salesDelta]>0))

However, the "Partners pos Delta"-measure doesn't give the correct result. In the example below I have 1 out of 3 stores with a positive sales delta. So I want to count 1 row. The "Partners pos Delta"-measure gives me 3. I think this is because the [salesDelta] is not calcultated correctly. The [salesDelta] is another measure that I created before. It is our sales evolution (%) minus the sales evolution of the category (%). This is correctly calcultated per store (as can be seen in the table below), but when I want to count the stores with a positive salesDelta, I think my DAX expression doesn't take into account that it needs to calculate the salesDelta per store and then needs to count the stores with a positive one.

I hope someone can help me with this problem. Thank you in advance!

@nele Try:

Partners pos Data = 
  VAR __Table =
    FILTER(
      ADDCOLUMNS(
        SUMMARIZE('Store Performance',[Customer Partner Name]),
        "__salesDelta",[salesDelta]
      ),
      [__salesDelta]>0
    )
RETURN
  COUNTROWS(
    DISTINCT(
      SELECTCOLUMNS(__Table,"Customer Partner Name",[Customer Partner Name])
    )
  )

@Greg_Deckler , maybe I need to add that the [salesDelta] is calculated per "Customer Partner Name", but this is not based on 1 row. There are multiple rows for 1 partner and based on the sum of these rows, the [salesDelta] is calculted. I think this is the reason that I cannot just add a column "salesDelta" in my dataset, since the average of the individual salesDelta's is not the same as the salesDelta of the sum of the individual rows.

@Greg_Deckler , Thank you for your quick response! Unfortunately, it still gives me the same outcome.

@nele What's the formula for salesDelta? Sample data would probably help as well. Sorry, having trouble following, can you post sample data as text and expected output?
Not really enough information to go on, please first check if your issue is a common issue listed here: https://community.powerbi.com/t5/Community-Blog/Before-You-Post-Read-This/ba-p/1116882

Also, please see this post regarding How to Get Your Question Answered Quickly: https://community.powerbi.com/t5/Community-Blog/How-to-Get-Your-Question-Answered-Quickly/ba-p/38490

The most important parts are:
1. Sample data as text, use the table tool in the editing bar
2. Expected output from sample data
3. Explanation in words of how to get from 1. to 2.

@Greg_Deckler , attached you can find sample data.

 

These are the steps that I do, using DAX expressions:

1. 

salesevoCat = (sum('Store Performance'[This Year - Sales Category])-SUM('Store Performance'[Last Year - Sales Category]))/SUM('Store Performance'[Last Year - Sales Category])
 
2. 
salesevoOwn = (sum('Store Performance'[This Year - Our Sales])-SUM('Store Performance'[Last Year - Our Sales]))/SUM('Store Performance'[Last Year - Our Sales])
 
3. salesDelta = [salesevoOwn]-[salesevoCat]
 
My goal now is to count the stores with a positive salesDelta. Like in the picture below.
