## Count certain days of a month

Good afternoon, I'm new to Power Bi.

I want to calculate the total of Tuesdays and Thursdays contained in a month.

Example: July/2021 tendria 9.

I've tried but haven't figured out how to make it work.

Create a measure as follows, add a the month column from our dates table and the measure

``````    Day Count =
var __lastdate =  MAX(Dates[Date])
var __firstdate = EOMONTH(__lastdate,-1)+1
return
COUNTROWS(
FILTER(
CALENDAR(__firstdate,__lastdate),
WEEKDAY([Date],1) IN {3,5}
)
)``````

@Syndicate_Admin assuming you have a calendar table in your model, if not, you can add one following my blog post Create a basic Date table in your data model for Time Intelligence calculations | PeryTUS IT Solutio...

and now you can add the following measure to count the number of Tuesday/Thursday in a month

``````Tuesday and Thursday Count =
CALCULATE ( COUNTROWS ( 'Calendar' ), WEEKDAY ( 'Calendar'[Date], 2 ) IN {2,4} )``````

To visualize, use table visual, add Month from calendar table and above measure and you will get the count.
