Drill through shows lower count than DistinctCount Measure

I cannot figure out what is happening. I have a measure on one tab (TotalPlans = DISTINCTCOUNT(AnnualAdminCasesPowerBI[PlanID]) and a table for drill through on another tab. When I right click and drill through from the Measure to the table, I count 79 rows, but the measure shows 81. I have no idea why. Anyone know?

Nevermind I figured it out. There was another field that when I added it added two more rows to the data. Then I figured out a date is listed wrong on those two rows which is why the prior count was correct.

@Anonymous , the distinct count can give different results with different grouping level.


Can you share sample data and sample output in table format? Or a sample pbix after removing sensitive data.

@amitchandak could you help me with how to add the .pbix file?

Ok this is the first time I'm posting on here so I apoligize for asking, but when I try to add the .pbix file, I get an error saying "The file type (.pbix) is not supported." I tried to add an excel and csv and get the same error. How do I attach it?
