# COUNT DISTINCT SHOWS WRONG GRAND TOTAL

Hey

Hey My grand total is wrong when using distinct count, if the visualisation is a matrix, table or any. The grand totalt is wrong. my dax formel is

User Distinct = DISTINCTCOUNT(table[UserId] )

There are many users who do different operations, one user can do a operation 4-5 times and etc.. but i want to have it distinct. But the sum when i filter it with a slicer or any other thing, it shows the row value correct, but the grand totalt is wrong!

NEED HELP ASAP!

Hi @GSinghking,

In your scenario, the measure will evaluate who column [UserId] and count distinct values on Total row of the table visual, instead of sum each measure row values.

If you would like to place total of each measure value on Total row, you can modify the measure below:

User Distinct = var t=SUMMARIZE('Table5','Table5'[Operation],"UserDistinct",DISTINCTCOUNT(Table5[UserID] ))
return
SUMX(t,[UserDistinct])

Hi There!

I have to do the same but filter it between two dates using slicers as my filters

for an e.g. count of distinct operations but for last week and previous last week and cannot apply the filter on the summarization though.
