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 NameObject TypeDate
abcvm1ahv3/26/2020
abcvm2vmw3/26/2020
bcdvm1ahv3/25/2020
bcdvm1ahv3/25/2020
bcdvm1ahv3/24/2020
bcdvm1vmw3/24/2020
cdwvm1ahv3/24/2020

 

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

DateahvvmwTotal
3/26/2020112
3/25/2020101
3/24/2020213
  Grand Total6

 

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])
