Distinct count of active employees over time period

Hello.
 
I am strugglig to get my number of employees by month right. The issue is that some employees hold two positions and appear each month twice. I don't know how to include "if a variable is true, count distinct"  into my formula below.  The 'Var result' with the 'if' formula does not work. 
 
Distinct count of active employees =
VAR currentDate =
    MAX ( 'DimDates'[Dates] )
VAR _active =
        FILTER (
            FactEmployement,
            ('FactEmployement'[Ansatt fra] <= currentDate
                && OR((FactEmployement[Ansatt til] >= currentDate ), ISBLANK(FactEmployement[Ansatt til]))
        )
    )
    VAR result = CALCULATE(DISTINCTCOUNT(FactEmployement[Ansattnr]),IF(_active=1,1,0))
    Return result
 
I would appreciate any suggestion!
Thanks in advance!

Hi,

I am not sure how your datamodel looks like, but please try disconnect the relationship between date table and fact table. And then try the below measure.

 

Distinct count of active employees =
VAR _active =
    SUMMARIZE (
        FILTER (
            FactEmployement,
            (
                'FactEmployement'[Ansatt fra] <= MAX ( 'DimDates'[Dates] )
                    && OR (
                        ( FactEmployement[Ansatt til] >= MIN ( 'DimDates'[Dates] ) ),
                        ISBLANK ( FactEmployement[Ansatt til] )
                    )
            )
        ),
        FactEmployement[Ansattnr]
    )
VAR result =
    COUNTROWS ( _active )
RETURN
    result
