DISTINCTCOUNTNOBLANK and filter on calculation

Hi All
I am trying to make a DISTINCT FILTER on a calculation
One place I am using the below, and this works as expected:
Total Parent = DISTINCTCOUNTNOBLANK(DM_Fact_Incident[Parent Incident])
However, I also have the following meassure which I want to also count distinct on the above coumn DM_Fact_Incident[Parent Incident]. But I have not been able to make it distinc, just total including duplicates of DM_Fact_Incident[Parent Incident as below
Parent E-Incidents =
CALCULATE([Total Events DM],
DM_Fact_Incident[Parent Incident] <> BLANK(),
DM_Fact_Incident_calc[pIncidentType] ="Incident" || DM_Fact_Incident_calc[pIncidentType] ="Security Incident" || DM_Fact_Incident_calc[pIncidentType] ="Request For Standard Change",
DM_Fact_Incident[Parent Emergency] = True
Anyone can help me remove duplicates from the DM_Fact_Incident[Parent Incident? Whavever I tried with DISTINCTCOUNTNOBLANK was not succsessfull

@amitchandak  Actually, I think I am wrong with putting that calucation there. Its basically total amount of rows in the table

hi  @VegarOyfoss 

Just adjust the formula with FILTER Function as below:

Parent E-Incidents =
    [Total Events DM],
    FILTER (
        DM_Fact_Incident[Parent Incident] <> BLANK ()
            && ( DM_Fact_Incident_calc[pIncidentType] = "Incident"
            || DM_Fact_Incident_calc[pIncidentType] = "Security Incident"
            || DM_Fact_Incident_calc[pIncidentType] = "Request For Standard Change" )
            && DM_Fact_Incident[Parent Emergency] = TRUE

If this post helps, then please consider Accept it as the solution to help the other members find it more quickly.

Here is an exampl eof how the table could look:

Parent IncidentpIncidentType
145Request For Information
168Security Incident


So I want to distinct count all rows which has "Incident", "Request For Standard Change' or "Security Incident" in the pIncidentType column, but NOT when the Parent Incident Row is null

And the output should be 3 rows the 2 rows of 123 should count as 1, And then the last two rows should also count


Hope that makes it easier
