How to count no. of items within a subgroup?

Hi all,

 

Need a dynamic DAX that can count the no. of items within a category. Following is a sample data:

 

Level 1Level 2
Aa1
Aa2
Bb1
Bb2
Aa3
Aa4
Cc1
Cc2
Cc3

 

Result should be something like this:

 

Level 1Count
A4
B2
C3

 

Please don't assume that A,B,C are the only Level 1s, as it might change as new data comes in.

The same DAX should work for following change as well (Let's say a 4th Level 1 comes in)

 

Level 1Level 2
Aa1
Aa2
Bb1
Bb2
Aa3
Aa4
Cc1
Cc2
Dd1
C

c3

 

The result should then be:

Level 1Count
A4
B2
C3
D1

or you create a calculated table like:

table =
ADDCOLUMNS(
    VALUES(data[level 1]),
    "Count",
    CALCULATE(COUNTROWS(data))
)

hi @AdityaG 

 

try to plot a table visual with level1 column and a measure like:

count = COUNTROWS(data)

 

it worked like:

I needed just like your 1st solution (which I've accepted), of adding a measured column to the table.
