Count Results from a Measure

Hi Guys.
Looking and looking I only saw complicated formulas of what I need and I couldn't reproduce.
I think it's simple. (for the experts)

I have a column with results from a measure. (with disposable zeros)

Planned
Planned

 0

Finished

Started

 

I wish I had a word count to use in a visual. (like Pie)

Finished1
Planned2
Started1

 

I thank the community for the help, every answer I get here helps me in at least 10 different things.

Thanks!

Hi @Peleias ,

 

You need to create a separate table that contains all the status values.

Then use the measure.

 

Count_ = 
COUNTROWS (
    FILTER (
        VALUES ( 'Table'[Column] ),
        [Result from a Measure] = MAX ( 'Status'[Value] )
    )
)

@Peleias , if the measure is returning those values. Then you need to have a table with those values and then you use that in another measure using a group from the original table

 

Very similar to what I have done here

Thank you @amitchandak 


I saw your video and I didn't understand it very well.
I searched here in the forum for several posts and most ask for a filter or a complex formula to have the result of the count based on a measure.

So I asked for help here in the simplest version of this Dax of Counting words resulting from a measure... in order to understand how it works and understand more complex formulas with filters and variables of the result of a measure.

@v-kkf-msft Thank you!
Perfect answer!
I had reached another conclusion but without being able to connect with the table. However I asked another question, I'll put that you answered the 2.
