Creating a Measure for individual count and total

Hi All,

I am a beginner to PowerBI and learning about measures. I have been trying to create a measure where it should display the below table in the image attached. I am looking for a  solution to display count of ID and Year as shown.

 

Please do help me with it.

 

Any suggestions are welcome.

 

Thank you in advance.Log Count.JPG

Hey,

 

create a measure ( https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/power-bi/desktop-tutorial-create-measures ) like so:

Count of ID = COUNT('<name of your table>'[ID])

If your table might contain the same ID more than once per year then you might consider replacing the COUNT ( https://dax.guide/count/ )function with DISTINCTCOUNT ( https://dax.guide/distinctcount/ ).

Use the column "Year" (from your existing table) and the measure in a table visual - done 🙂

 

Hopefully, this provides some new insights.

 

Regards,

Tom
