FIRSTNONBLANK not returning every value

Hello all,


I have the below DAX expression to return the use name from a table that has multiple values to a table with single values. I am joining them by the date but for some reason on 3/4th of the values gets pulled over. Note: there is only one username next to each distinct date on the multi table.  I have checked all the dates and there are true values to be pulled for the dates missing. below I also have an example of the results. Does anyone know why I would get spotty results when that data is there just like any of the other rows that found a value?



User Worked = CALCULATE(
FIRSTNONBLANK( SearchTable[Processed by Name], 1),
FILTER( ALL(SearchTable), SearchTable[Date] = 'Calendar'[Date]))
