## How to return the number of rows displayed in a visual

Hello,

I've created a report where I'm pulling columns from multiple tables.  These tables have a relationship.  I need to get the number of rows returned from my table visual.  I've tried creating a measure like this: Rows=COUNTROWS('Table A')+COUNTROWS('Table B').  This meaure is returning the number of rows in Table A and Table B in the database, not the number of rows in my visualization.

For example, the measure returns 700 rows.  The number of rows in my visual is 100 rows.

How can I return the number of rows displayed in my visual?

hi @mdubose

try like:
Count =
COUNTROWS(
SUMMARIZE(
TableA1,
TableA[Case Number],
TableA[Name First],
TableA[Name Middle],
TableA[Name Last],
TableB[Requester First Name],
)

If all of the columns used share a common fact table, you can use an expression like this to get your row count.

``RowCount = COUNTROWS(SUMMARIZE(FactTable, Dim1[Column1], Dim2[Column2], ...))``

Below is a sample of my table visual. I want to get the count of rows in this table visual.

Hi @FreemanZ ,

All the fields in the sample visual are columns.  I want to put my measure next to the word, "Count".  The DAX formula in the measure is this for example: Rows=COUNTROWS('Table A')+COUNTROWS('Table B').  What's returned from the DAX is 700 because it's counting the rows in Table A which is 500 plus counting the rows in Table B which is 200.  However, this formula doesn't return the actual number of rows displayed in my visual.

which of the columns are from Table A and which are from Table B? How are the two tables related or which table is on the many side?

Hi @FreemanZ ,

Below is an example of my table visual without displaying the values.

Columns Case Number to Name Last are from Table A.

Columns Requester First Name and Requester Last  Name are from Table B.

Table A is related to a different table called Table A1. Table A is one to many to Table A1. Table A1 is many to one to Table B.
