Adding a new column to count the number of records

Hi,

 

Please consider following senario:

Data is:

 

NameDate
A01/09/2016
A02/09/2016
A03/09/2016
A04/09/2016
A05/09/2016
B01/09/2016
B01/09/2016
B02/09/2016
B02/09/2016
B02/09/2016
B03/09/2016
C05/09/2016
D02/09/2016
E03/09/2016
F04/09/2016
F04/09/2016

 

I want to add a new column to it to have the total number of rows per individual. I don't want measure, I want a column. With measure I know how to do it. my need is with column.

 

Desired output is:

 

NameDateCount
A01/09/20165
A02/09/20165
A03/09/20165
A04/09/20165
A05/09/20165
B01/09/20166
B01/09/20166
B02/09/20166
B02/09/20166
B02/09/20166
B03/09/20166
C05/09/20161
D02/09/20161
E03/09/20161
F04/09/20162
F04/09/20162

 

Please advise.

Thanks.

an alternative to @KHorseman's solution above would be

 

Alt RowCount = CALCULATE ( COUNTROWS('Table'), ALLEXCEPT('Table', 'Table'[Name]) )

RowCount = CALCULATE(
	COUNTROWS(TableName),
	FILTER(
		ALL(TableName),
		TableName[Name] = EARLIER(TableName[Name])
	)
)

Oh yeah, that works too. I've had to do this in a few of my reports recently, but it usually has some other complicated conditions that made the ALLEXCEPT method much messier to write, so I sort of forgot it was an option.
