Count between start and end date

I have a table as follows.  I want to get a count of names between start and end date.  the result is a table like figure 2.  I have a datetable related to this table. When I do the measure, it is just giving me a count based on start date.  So, if I have two that started on 1.3 then it shows a 2. Which is not what I want. 

 

The Measure I tried is this:

TEST NEW Headcount = calculate(
                                           count(TEST[Name]),
                                           Filter (
                                           TEST,
                                          TEST[Start_Date] <= calculate(max(datetable1[date]) ) &&
                                          TEST[End_Date] >= calculate(min(DateTable1[Date]))))

 

 

Name              Start_Date                                       End_Date

Hi @joshcomputer1 ,

 

Your measure is correct however your datetable needs to be disconnected from your Test Table.

 

Since you have a relationship on the Start Date your data is filtered by the start date only so give you 6  as a result and not the expect outcome.

 

Check the image below and PBIX file attach:

here is my suggestion to tackle this :

 

first Make a new date table.

 

DateTable = Calendar(Minx(table1,Table1[Date]),Now()) 

Now add a new calculated column:

 

DateSlicer = CALCULATE(
    COUNTROWS(contractid),
    FILTER(Table1,
        DateTable[Date] >= [startdate] &&
        DateTable[Date] <= [Enddate])

 

Hope this  will help.
