Hello.. I have been searching all day for an answer to my dilemma. I wanted to get the count of how many times the value in a column appears in the column. I have found lots of solutions involving COUNTROW(FILTER formula that also involves EARLIER function. I am amazed that it has worked for a lot of the users who needed that solution. But for some reason, it does not work for me. The resulting value squares the correct count.
To illustrate, for example I have below data. Table name is "Data". I want column B to return the count of occurrence of the ID in column A:
So I made this formula in Power BI Desktop via a calculated column. As you can see, the result is squaring the actual count:
I hope someone can help me with this. Any possible reason why this is happening? And any solution for this?
Thanks in advance.
