Hi @newbiepowerbi 

Try this measure

Measure_ =
VAR auxT_ =
    CALCULATETABLE ( DISTINCT ( Table2[SiteID] ), Table2[Category] = "Passive" )
RETURN
    COUNTROWS (
        FILTER ( auxT_, CALCULATE ( DISTINCTCOUNT ( Table2[Category] ) ) = 1 )
    )

Thank you this is great just to confirm my understanding of the code. you first created a variable table just to identify which sites have "passive" category. then you iterate with said variable table using filter, to check which of this sites have 1 distinct category which should be passive. 

 

Exactly. Good summary
