## 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 1 Level 2 A a1 A a2 B b1 B b2 A a3 A a4 C c1 C c2 C c3

Result should be something like this:

 Level 1 Count A 4 B 2 C 3

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 1 Level 2 A a1 A a2 B b1 B b2 A a3 A a4 C c1 C c2 D d1 C c3

The result should then be:

 Level 1 Count A 4 B 2 C 3 D 1

or you create a calculated table like:

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

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