Need help on calculating measure

I am trying to create a new measure for the below scenario.

 

1) I want to count the number of people that are inside a building .

Formula I used

PeopleInside = CALCULATE(DISTINCTCOUNT(Table[person_id]),isblank(Table[exit_time]))
This works perfect.

 

2) I want to distinct count the number of people that left the building.

Formula I used 

PeopleOutside = CALCULATE(DISTINCTCOUNT(Table[person_id]),Table[exit_time] <> BLANK())

 

Here comes the problem :

person_idperson_nameenter_timeexit_time
100xyz04/06/2018 9:46:41 AM04/06/2018 6:08:13 PM
100xyz04/06/2018 6:30:11 PM 

In this case, PeopleOutside should be showing 0 because the person is inside the building but my formula shows 1 for both PeopleInside and PeopleOutside.

 

Could someone please help. Thanks!

Hi @SR1,

 

We can filter out these person still inside. Try this formula, please.

Measure =
VAR stillIn =
    CALCULATETABLE ( VALUES ( Table1[person_id] ), ISBLANK ( 'Table1'[exit_time] ) )
RETURN
    CALCULATE (
        DISTINCTCOUNT ( Table1[person_id] ),
        FILTER (
            'Table1',
            ISBLANK ( 'Table1'[exit_time] ) = FALSE ()
                && NOT Table1[person_id] IN stillIn
        )
    )
