## Trying to us COUNT on a measure that Performs datediff

I use the following measure to calculate date difference what I am trying to do is then count how many are <=60 The measure works perfectly, I am looking to add cards to visual that will count how many are <=60 days remaining.

DaysLeft =
VAR PlannedComplete = [Planned Complete]
RETURN

SWITCH(
TRUE,
DATEVALUE(E1Data[Planned Complete]) < TODAY(), 0,
DATEVALUE(E1Data[Planned Complete]) >= TODAY(), DateDiff(Today(), DATEVALUE(E1Data[Planned Complete]), DAY))

Here are the results:

You cannot measure a measure directly. Either materialize it first, or create a separate measure that implements the entire business logic.

Please provide sample data that covers your issue or question completely, in a usable format (not as a screenshot).

Do not include sensitive information or anything not related to the issue or question.

If you are unsure how to upload data please refer to https://community.fabric.microsoft.com/t5/Community-Blog/How-to-provide-sample-data-in-the-Power-BI-...

Please show the expected outcome based on the sample data you provided.
