You actually can change the values into text format, then it will not summarize anymore.


Hope this can helps you.

When i tried changing it to text it still count the number Count( Distinct ) and Count 

That's weird. Have you try this method also?





Hope this can help you.

yes this the exactly the one that i made i tried doing that now but still i have no option for this one 





If your only options are Don't summarize, First, Last, Distinct and Count, then the value is not of a number type.  I'd suggest making sure that when the column is loaded from power query to the report, or the column is created in dax, that the column is of a number type, I think that will help you get a sense of what is actually happening even though it won't solve your problem directly.


Agreed with what someone said before.  What is your data and what is your expected output?

Sorry i have to create it via excel. 


I created something like that in Data Model.

i think you need to provide one sample data screenshot and one output screenshot.
