## Count and Aggregate by multiple values

Hello!

So, I'm trying to resolve this, I believe the answer is righ there in front of me, but I just can't assemble my thoughts right... I have the table below and I need 2 measures: 1) Quantity of distinct projects by department and 2) For each Project and department, how many tasks is a owner responsible by?

I tried to use "group by", but I did it in two steps: firts, I created a new calculated table, grouping by Project, Task, Department and Owner. Then, I created a measure using "group by" like this: COUNTROWS(GROUPBY("groupstep1","groupstep1[Owner]","groupstep1[Task]","groupstep1[Project]". It actually worked, but I was wondering if there is any way to do this without the firts step. Or any better way....

Hi,@ninapetr

Regarding the issue you raised, my solution is as follows:

1.First I have created the following table and the column names and data are the data you have given:

2.Secondly to fulfill your two needs I have created two separate measure and my dax function is as follows:

The first measure is grouped by different sectors, and then the number of different items is counted.

``Measure1 = CALCULATE(DISTINCTCOUNT('group'[Project]),FILTER(ALL('group'),'group'[Department]=MAX('group'[Department])))``

The second measure filters out different projects, different departments and different owners and then counts the number of tasks.

``Measure 2 = CALCULATE(COUNTROWS('group'),FILTER(ALL('group'),'group'[Department]=MAX('group'[Department])&&'group'[Project]=MAX('group'[Project])&&'group'[Owner]=MAX('group'[Owner])))``

3.Here's my final result, which I hope meets your requirements.

Can you share sample data and sample output in tabular format if I am misunderstanding? Or a sample pbix after removing sensitive data. We can better understand the problem and help you.

Best Regards,
