Hi khalilliraqui,

 

According to your description, you want to get the count of resource owner persons which first name start with “j”?

 

If as I said, you can follow below steps):

 

  1.  Create sample table, ‘Person’, ’Personal Source’ , ‘Resource Type’.

‘Person’:

’Personal Source’:

‘Resource Type’:

  1. Write the Dax formula of requirement:

 

Recoure Count of Person Start with 'j' = DISTINCT( SELECTCOLUMNS('Personal Source',"Resource Type",RELATED('Resource Type'[Name]),"Count",COUNTX(FILTER('Personal Source','Personal Source'[Resource Type ID]=EARLIER('Personal Source'[Resource Type ID])&& LEFT(RELATED(Person[First Name]))="j"),'Personal Source'[Person ID])))

RELATED Function (DAX)
