Incorrect Row Values



I have a matrix that is displaying the row values incorrectly. The matrix shows inaccurate row data but an accurate distinct grand total. If I have a meter that belongs to more than one segment , it's billing date is getting counted in both their total's if the meter had been billed in one segment for a specific date then re-billed in another segment later on in the year for the same date. 


The Measures I have are below: 

Billed Months = DISTINCTCOUNT('Data'[Billing Start Date]

Total Billed Months = CALCULATE(SUMX(DISTINCT('Data'[Meter]), [Billed Months]))


Say a meter belongs to 5 different segments in a year, it then gives the below output: 


Segment    Total Billed Months

Direct                      1

Fixed                       1

Flexible                   2

Indirect                   2

Ultra                       1

Total                      4


Essentially, I only want to count the billing start date it if it appears in more than one segment for a meter


Any help is greatly appreciated

@ph1234 , expected output is not clear. What you displayed is correct or wrong?


Can you share sample data and sample output in table format? Or a sample pbix after removing sensitive data.

Hi @amitchandak  Please see the table.

Meter     Segment          Billing Start Date
1             Direct                 01/11/2018
1              Fixed                  01/10/2018 
1              Flexible             01/10/2018
1             Flexible               01/07/2018
1             Indirect              01/10/2018
1              Indirect            01/08/2018
1             Ultra                01/10/2018

Essentially, the column total is correct as there are 4 distinct start dates. However, when this is by row level the start date for one meter can belong to different segments and is counting it more than once. For instance, in the table 01/10/2018 is counted many times but I only want to count it once - ignoring the other duplicates
