Count Distinct unique values by Month

Hello

 

I am trying to create a calculated column in a table that displays total number of distinct unique values per month. For instance, in the below table, there are 3 unique values - A1, B2 and B3 in the period of Jan 2017. So I need a count of 3 to be displayed in my count column.

 

DateUnique valueCount required
31/01/2017A13
31/01/2017B23
31/01/2017A13
31/01/2017B33
31/01/2017A13
28/02/2017A12
28/02/2017A12
28/02/2017B22
28/02/2017B22
31/03/2017A14
31/03/2017B24
31/03/2017B34
31/03/2017C34

 

Is it possible to calculate the 'Count required' column through DAX?

Any help will be appreciated.

 

Thanks

Hi @Anonymous ,

Based on my test, you could refer to below steps:

Create a Month column:

Month = MONTH('Table2'[Date])

Create below measure:

Measure = CALCULATE(DISTINCTCOUNT(Table2[Unique value]),FILTER(ALL('Table2'),'Table2'[Month]=MAX('Table2'[Month])))

Result:

You could also download the pbix file to have a view.
