Filter a column based on the value of another column

Hi All, 

 

stupid question.. but I really cannot fix it..

 

I am trying to distinct count the values in column A excluding the values in column B

 

A- ValueB-Exclude
11
2 
1 
2 
3 
3 
4 

 

The result should be 3... but if I do.. =CALCULATE(DISTINCTCOUNT(Table1[A]);ALLEXCEPT(Table1;Table1[B])) doesn't work.. how should I fix it?

 

thanks

Simone

Measure = CALCULATE(DISTINCTCOUNT(TableA[Column1]);FILTER(TableA;NOT(TableA[Column1] in VALUES(TableA[Column2]))))

you can create a new column and filter the page base on true 😃  or another way around 
hope this it will help

Not really because this is just a dummy example.. but I want to exclude any value from column B that appears in column A

 

Result:=CALCULATE(COUNT(Table1[Simone]),FILTER(Table1,Table1[Simone]<>Table1[Exclude]))

 

but the result should be 3.. because I consider the 1 as a value... even if not repeated

Please look atention on my solution
you saying you want to show values from column1 where is not in column 2 correct ?
then my IF create value false where the values are iqual 😃

if i filter my page where this column is all ways true you will see 1,4 and 5 excloding 2 and 3

@simo12447 , try

calculate(distinctCOUNT(Table[A]), Table[B]<>1)

OR
calculate(distinctCOUNT(Table[A]), filter(Table,Table[B]<>1))
