Need new calc column counting all rows with same value in column but not for entire table

I need to calulate all rows with the same value in a column.  I see someone posted this answer:

                     new_calculated = COUNTROWS(FILTER('current table',
                           (EARLIER('current table'[3rd_column]) = 'current table'[3rd_column])))

 

That's great and it works but it's adding up the rows for the ENTIRE table, which I don't want.  My report is filtered to just have part of the table shown (I only selected rows where a certain column = a certain value).  I just want the new calculated column to calculate for the rows shown, not for the entire table.

 

Hope that makes sense, and any help is appreciated! 🙂

Hi @zamboni1199,

 

It seems that you may filter the report with the date slicer.

 

If it is your case, you could create the calculated column with the measure below.

 

Column =
COUNTROWS (
    FILTER (
        'Table1',
        EARLIER ( 'Table1'[Employee] ) = 'Table1'[Employee]
            && 'Table1'[Date].[Month] = EARLIER ( Table1[Date].[Month] )
    )
)

Here is the result output.

Yes, thank you, here you go:

 

Here is the filtered data in my report:

 

Created On        Employee     Number of Occurrences

1/1/2018            John Doe          43

1/10/18              Jill Smith           17

1/21/18              John Doe          43

 

The number of occurrences should read 2 for John Doe and 1 for Jill Smith because I'm only showing data that was Created in January of 2018.  But the Number of Occurrences is showing the total times John Doe and Jill Smith are listed in the table (from January 2018 through the current date).  I just need the Number of Occurrences to match what's showing on my filtered report.  Thanks.
