## Distinct Count of Object Per Type and Date

Hi,

I have this table where I need to count the Grand Total number of object by date:

 Object Name Object Type Date abcvm1 ahv 3/26/2020 abcvm2 vmw 3/26/2020 bcdvm1 ahv 3/25/2020 bcdvm1 ahv 3/25/2020 bcdvm1 ahv 3/24/2020 bcdvm1 vmw 3/24/2020 cdwvm1 ahv 3/24/2020

An object should be counted only once per day if it's of the same object type. The answer should be:

 Date ahv vmw Total 3/26/2020 1 1 2 3/25/2020 1 0 1 3/24/2020 2 1 3 Grand Total 6

I am using a "Card" visualization to show the Grand Total as I filter the date/s. Please let me know the correct Measure that I can use for the "Card".

Thanks in advance!

Hi , @Rabur116

Try steps as below:

1.create a calculate table:

``Table 2 = DISTINCT('Table'[Object Type])``

2.create a mesure as below

``````value1 =
SUMX (
GROUPBY (
FILTER ( 'Table', 'Table'[Object Type] IN DISTINCT ( 'Table 2'[Object Type] ) ),
'Table'[Date],
'Table'[Object Type]
),
IF (
ISBLANK ( CALCULATE ( DISTINCTCOUNT ( 'Table'[Object Name] ) ) ),
0,
CALCULATE ( DISTINCTCOUNT ( 'Table'[Object Name] ) )
)
) + 0``````

It will show as below:

Try like

Sumx(summarize(Table[Date],table,[ Object Type]"_dist",distinct(Table[Object Name])),[_dist])
