Hi @davidi4524,

 

Look at your original question carefully - COUNT is exactly what you wanted.  Anyways, for your changed question now, try this

 

=DISTINCTCOUNT(Data[Date])

Re: counting records per user

If you want a distinct count for my solution, simply select 'Distinct Count' from the dropdown instead of 'Count'.

Hi,

 

This should not be a calculated column but a measure.  Drag the Name, create a date slicer  and make any selection.  Then use this measure

 

=COUNTROWS(Data)

 

Hope this helps.

Re: counting records per user

If you want simply display the table, you can do that with just a couple clicks using the Table visual. Just drag the 'Name' column onto the table twice. Click the drop down arrow and select 'Count'. Then, create a filter using your Date column. Be sure that it's formatted as a date or date/time or you won't see the slider, you'll see check boxes.

 

 

If you want to create a brand new table...

  1. Enter the Query Editor
  2. Right-click the table and select 'Duplicate'
  3. With the new table selected, click 'Group By' from the 'Transform' section of the home ribbon
  4. Choose to group by your Name column
  5. Choose the Operation 'Count Rows'
  6. Click 'OK'
