## Calculate Count with min/max filters?

Dears,

I have to write a calculate function in order to count the number of users involved.

The expected result should be a count of the first and the last user (based on column "New user").

Should I use somehow the "Index column" or there is a another way to solve this?

Hi @MaciejARC ,

Please refer to my pbix file to see if it helps you.

Create two columns.

``````Column =
VAR _min =
CALCULATE (
MIN ( 'Table'[Index] ),
FILTER ( 'Table', 'Table'[New User] <> BLANK () )
)
VAR _max =
CALCULATE (
MAX ( 'Table'[Index] ),
FILTER ( 'Table', 'Table'[New User] <> BLANK () )
)
RETURN
IF ( 'Table'[Index] = _min, 1, IF ( 'Table'[Index] = _max, 1, 0 ) )
``````
``````Column 2 =
VAR _result =
CALCULATE (
COUNT ( 'Table'[Column] ),
FILTER (
'Table',
'Table'[Employee] = EARLIER ( 'Table'[Employee] )
&& 'Table'[Column] <> 0
)
)
RETURN
IF ( 'Table'[Column] = _result && 'Table'[Column] <> 0, 1, BLANK () )
``````

@MaciejARC I'm not following the rules for selection here. Sorry, having trouble following, can you post sample data as text and expected output?
Not really enough information to go on, please first check if your issue is a common issue listed here: https://community.powerbi.com/t5/Community-Blog/Before-You-Post-Read-This/ba-p/1116882

Also, please see this post regarding How to Get Your Question Answered Quickly: https://community.powerbi.com/t5/Community-Blog/How-to-Get-Your-Question-Answered-Quickly/ba-p/38490

The most important parts are:
1. Sample data as text, use the table tool in the editing bar
2. Expected output from sample data
3. Explanation in words of how to get from 1. to 2.
