Helper I

## Distinct Count Help

I have a table showing Issues and Location. I need to show a count of unique location by Issue. I need help creating a measure or calculated column for to make a result table like the 2nd table. Wire out has has 2 counts because of two different locations and Ripped has 1 count because Africa is the only location(even though it is repeated). Thanks for your assistance

 Issue Location Wire Out North America Wire Out Asia Broken Asia Ripped Africa Ripped Africa Stained Asia Stained Europe Stained Africa

Result:

 Issue Count of Location Wire Out 2 Broken 1 Ripped 1 Stained 3

Hi - try use a matrix / table, add the Issue as a row value and then create a measure like:

``Count of Location = COUNTROWS(VALUES(Table[Location]))``

Hi @Jadegirlify ,
I’d like to acknowledge the valuable input provided by the @VahidDM   and @vicky_  .
Here are more  steps I want to add:
First, you can use filed aggregation

Or you can create a measure

``Count of Lcation = CALCULATE( DISTINCTCOUNT('Table'[Location]), ALLEXCEPT( 'Table', 'Table'[Issue] ) ) ``

Best regards,
Albert He

Count of Location = DISTINCTCOUNT('Table'[Location])
