Calculating Working Days correctly, but filter context for Month not working

https://app.powerbi.com/view?r=eyJrIjoiOGE4ZWU5ZjgtYzJhOS00MjkyLTkwN2UtNmNmM2RjYmU4YWEwIiwidCI6ImI1Y...

 

See link above for sample calendar that is calculating working days.

 

The Matrix visual demonstrates that my method of determining a working day less holidays if functionally working.  Example first day of the year is New Years Day which falls on a Monday, which would normally be a working day, however because it is a holday the matrix is showing as Zero for the first Monday of the year and a One for the second Monday of the year.  So determining a working day minus holidays is working in my Power BI sample.

 

However, when I create a Month Name as the filter context and count rows that are working days

Count working days = CALCULATE(COUNTROWS(dates),FILTER(dates,dates[isworkingday]=1))

the table filter context is not working, instead of the actual days of work per month, it is showing 255 days.

 

I'm a newbie to Power BI, excuse me if the answer is simple, but not obvious to me, need help

Hi surfingjoe,

Try just using SUM.

 

Count working days = SUM(dates[isworkingday])

 

Tell us if works for you.

Re: Calculating Working Days correctly, but filter context for Month not working

Never thought to simply use SUM.  Normal thought process is towards counting the working days, but since each true workinday is represented by a 1 and non working days represented by 0, then using SUM works.  Thank you.
