Formula for getting a Distinct count while filtering for values that are less than 0

I need a new measure formula for getting a distinct count of "IDs" while filtering for values on "Profit" that are less than 0 and adding a filter for "New" in the Used/New field so it only pulls those values. For some reason I'm getting errors with the > when I use the calculate function.


Thanks for any help you can provide!

Hello @NCPowerBI.,


Here's a measure formula that should give you the distinct count of IDs:

DistinctCountIDs = 
        Table[Profit] < 0 && Table[Used/New] = "New"


Let me know if you have any further questions.

Hi Sahir, for whatever reason it's still giving me an issue. It's not giving me any values when I put it on the view. I neglected to mention above, there are two different fields I am filtering for at the end - "New" and "Non". Let me know your thoughts!


Negative Volume =
    DISTINCTCOUNT('Hist Orig Profit Query'[UIID]),
        'Hist Orig Profit Query',
        'Hist Orig Profit Query'[Profit] < 0 && 'Hist Orig Profit Query'[Class] = "New" & 'Hist Orig Profit Query'
[Class] = "Non"
