Return a Count only if the person is an approver

I need help adjusting my dax code. I have a measure created to return the number of cardholders an approver oversees. The problem is that the measure is returning a count for cardholders who aren't approvers. This is an example of what my data looks like:

I have my data plugged into a nested table, but when you expand it all of the card holders under the approver are returning a count of 1.

My dax code for the count is:

c Count of Card Members Overseen by Approver =
COUNTROWS(
VALUES(table[Card Holder])
)

I douot but worth trying
VAR CardCount =COUNTROWS(VALUES(table[Card Holder]))

VAR Result =
IF ( CardCount=1, 0CardCount)

RETURN

Result

That almost works. It returns a 0 for all cardholders, but occassionally there is a cardholder who is an approver.

 

Under another approver?

Hi @bmoon 
Try this

Approver =
VAR CardCount =
    COUNTROWS ( VALUES ( table[Card Holder] ) )
VAR CardHolder =
    VALUES ( table[Card Holder] )
VAR Result =
    IF (
        CardCount = 1,
        IF ( CONTAINS ( table, table[Approver], CardHolder ), CardCount, 0 ),
        CardCount
    )
RETURN
    Result

It still seems to be populating the 1's

Hi @bmoon 

What do you want it to return? To return for example 5 for all cardholders unde Gonzalez? Also any cardholder having more than one card or only one card per cardholder?

Hi

Any luck? Can tou please send sample data?

Sorry for my unclear question. I want it to return the count of cardholders overseen. So in the example with Gonzalez, his count (5) is correct. However, all of the individuals under him are cardholders and not approvers. So I want them to show 0 rather than 1. Occasionally an approver and cardholder can be the same person so I need to also account for that.

Hi @bmoon 
I was going through open posts and noticed that for some reason I missed to reply to your last comment. I hope you already found a solution for this issue, if not please refer to the sample file with the solution. https://www.dropbox.com/t/JapcKP84iEDhZXx9

I don't know which number would you like to show next to the approver who is also a card holder therefore, I proposed two solutions hopefully one of them will satisfy your requirement.

 

 

Count of Card Members Overseen by Approver 1 = 
VAR CardCount =
    COUNTROWS ( VALUES ( 'Table'[Card Holder] ) )
VAR CardHolder =
    ALL ( 'Table'[Approver] )
VAR Result =
    IF (
        CardCount = 1,
        IF ( SELECTEDVALUE ( 'Table'[Card Holder] ) IN CardHolder, 1, 0 ),
        CardCount
    )
RETURN
    Result
Count of Card Members Overseen by Approver 2 = 
VAR CurrentCardHolder =
    SELECTEDVALUE ( 'Table'[Card Holder] )
VAR CardCount =
    COUNTROWS ( VALUES ( 'Table'[Card Holder] ) )
VAR CardApprovers =
    ALL ( 'Table'[Approver] )
VAR Result =
    IF (
        CardCount = 1,
        IF ( 
            CurrentCardHolder IN CardApprovers, 
            CALCULATE ( 
                COUNTROWS ( VALUES ( 'Table'[Card Holder] ) ), 
                'Table'[Approver] = CurrentCardHolder, 
                REMOVEFILTERS ( 'Table' ) 
            ), 
            0 
        ),
        CardCount
    )
RETURN
    Result

Hi,
Whatever your reason is you can try

Approver =
IF (
ISINSCOPE ( table[Approver] ),
COUNTROWS ( VALUES ( table[Card Holder] ) ),
0
)

but this will return all cardholder values to zero regardless whether they are also approvers or not. I'll let you know if I found a solution for that. First please try this code and let me know if it works.
