Measures with dates



I have a date control for Week Ending dates. Using this date control I have 2 measures I'm graphing against it:


One uses an actual date and appears corrects (calculate(countrows(table),table[actual]<>blank

Measure 2 with the issues is (calculate(countrows(table),table[target]<>blank


The second measure is adding the values in the last week twice, how can this be worked around? WIll supply data shortly

Re: Measures with dates

Hello SparkPlug,


Did you try to use DistinctCountNoBlank function?


Hope this measure help you:

Measure 2 = DISTINCTCOUNTNOBLANK(table[target])
Please provide extra information if that measure did not help you.
Best wishes 🙂
