## Count for current month

Hi,

i want to make a measure to count below dates from dim table:

1. Today's date count

2. Current month date count

basically counting dates from my fact table gives me number of my staff not available for work.

i have seperate table for calandar as well which is linked to fact table.

i have tried to create below measure but it does not give correct value.

Today_Count= Calculate(Distinctcount(Fact_NOAV_data[Date]), Fact_NOAV_data=Today())

Current Month Count = Calculate(Count(Fact_NOAV_data[Date]),Month(Fact_NOAV_data[Date]=Month(Today()))

thank your help.

hi @Enan

try like:

Today_Count= Calculate(COUNTROWS(Fact_NOAV_data), Fact_NOAV_data[Date]=Today())

Current Month Count = Calculate(COUNTROWS(Fact_NOAV_data),Month(Fact_NOAV_data[Date]=Month(Today()))

@Enan , for current month use

Current Month Count = Calculate(Count(Fact_NOAV_data[Date])filter( Fact_NOAV_data ,eomonth(Fact_NOAV_data[Date],0)=eoMonth(Today(),0) ))

todays_count is working fine with countrows.

but current month count with countrows is not working its gives total number of records in the table. I tried with calendar table as well but same answer. How to resolve this plz?

or

Today_Count= Calculate(COUNTROWS(Fact_NOAV_data), 'Calendar'[Date]=Today())

Current Month Count = Calculate(COUNTROWS(Fact_NOAV_data),Month('Calendar'[Date]=Month(Today()))
if you plot with the Date column from the Calendar Table.
