Cummulative values issue when using inactive relationships

I am trying to calculate the net figure of leavers vs joiners over a time.

 

My primary (active) date relationship is built on the start date

my secondary (inactive) date relationship is built on leaving date

 

when i get my joiners which is on the primary relationship it works fine, however when i plot my leavers on a graph it is returning 1000 of rows that have no date, it looks like its counting blanks?  I dont want it to count blanks.  this is very confusing have no idea how to resolve this

 

CALCULATE(DISTINCTCOUNT('Employees All Time'[Employee No.]),
filter(
all('Date'[Date]),
'Date'[Date] <= MAX('Date'[Date])

 

not working 

"Leavers", CALCULATE(DISTINCTCOUNT('Employees All Time'[Employee No.]),
USERELATIONSHIP('Employees All Time'[Leaving Date],'Date'[Date]),

filter(
all('Date'[Date]),
'Date'[Date] <= MAX('Date'[Date])))

Does your 'Date' calendar table include all dates as far back as the earliest date in the 'Employees All Time'[Leaving Date] column?

@mattbrice hi yes it does have all the dates, @v-yuezhe-msft can't share the data but i know what the issue is, its counting the blanks.  However I dont want it to count the blanks, how do i ignore them?  I tried not(isblank) but that seems to have no affect, however if you recreate the measure where isblank is true then you can tae that new measure and minus the blanks from the original measure, but it seems like a very unelegant way to do it.

Hi @vanessafvg,

Where do you put not(isblank) in your formula?  Do you use the following formula? You can share table with dummy data.

leavers = CALCULATE(DISTINCTCOUNT('Employees All Time'[Employee No.]),NOT(ISBLANK('Employees All Time'[leaving date])),
USERELATIONSHIP('Employees All Time'[leaving date],'Date'[Date]),
filter(
all('Date'[Date]),
'Date'[Date]<= MAX('Date'[Date])))
