Non intuitive total

Hi,

Im having a logic doubt problem that I hope you can help with.

I have a column with Orders, Distinct Customer, Orders per Distict Customer. 

 

orders  = SUMX(Orders,Orders[Count])

distict Customer = DISTINCTCOUNT(Orders[Customer_code])

orders per distinct cust = [orders]/[distict Customer]

All the numbers in that table are correct. However, the 2022 number is not intuitive. It should be around 56.

 

How would you enforce that?

Hi @fosterXO 
You may try something like:

distict Customer =
AVERAGEX (
    SUMMARIZE ( 'Table', [Year], [Month] ),
    CALCULATE ( DISTINCTCOUNT ( Orders[Customer_code] ) )
)

hi @fosterXO 

it is not intuitive , because distinctcount is semi-additive, or because one Customer_code could present at multiple months, but it is counted once only in Year 2022.  Make sense?

Yes, the question would be how to show something that is more intuitive for users. Maybe an average?
