## Count number of distinct values within period. Example file attached

I have a table that holds absentee data and whether the absent postion has been backfilled.  I have a measure that counts the number of distinct values in the "Backfill" column for each period.

I am now trying to use this measure in a calculated column in a "IF" statement, but the values for the "Number of Backfill" measure once in the calculated column as not correct.  What the best way to be able to use the number of backfill values for each period in the the "Backfill Calculation" column.

I hope that makes sense and thanks in advance.

@StuartSmith why do you want it as a column? Why cannot create another measure with the condition you are looking for which will return true/false

``````Measure =
SELECTEDVALUE ( Table[Country] ) = "UK" && [Backfillers] = 3``````

Thanks for replying and although not directly, your comments helpped me fix the issue.  I was trying to use columns and measures spanning a few tables and Bi wasn't liking it.  I therefore consolidated everything into 1 table container and can now get the desired result.
