## Count of table using Measure

I am wanting to find the COUNT of dates in a column using a measure that finds which date occurs most as I am wanting to count how many times this date occurs in the table.

 Date 01/01/2023 05/01/2023 05/01/2023 06/01/2023

Most Frequent Date: 05/01/2023

Result: 2

I have the current measure that I am wanting to work off

Measure - Max Date Count =
VAR T1 =
VAR MostRepeated =
MAXX(T1,[COUNT])
Return

So what I am wanting to do is something like CALCULATE(COUNTROWS('EW Applications'),FILTER('EW Applications', 'EW Applications'[Date Received] = [Measure - Max Date Count])) though I either get the count of all rows or an error

For the last measure which isn't working, you'll probably have to put the result of the first measure in a variable and use the variable in the Filter, e.g. var _mostCommon = [Measure - Max Date Count]  then pass _MostCommon to the FILTER clause

This is the sample data I used:

This is my date count measure:

DateCount = COUNT( EWTransactions[Date] )

Then I created a new measure to rank the date based on number of occurences of that date:

This worked! I knew it was somehting to do with the Measure going through the FILTER

Measure - Count Max Days =
VAR MaxDate = [Measure - Max Date Count]
RETURN
CALCULATE(COUNTROWS('EW Applications'),FILTER('EW Applications','EW Applications'[Date Received] = MaxDate))

First, create a date dimension table and establish a relationship to your fact table. Then create a measure to count the rows of the date column in your fact table. Then in your visual, add the date column from your date dimension table, and the measure of counted rows.
