Obtain Total/Count on multiple conditions

Table View has a column LONG TERM PLACEMENT 1 and contains a mix of data.


I want to obtain the total of real data. therefore to count and not include the following NO PLACEMENT, N/A, blank.
So far I am unsuccessful in calculated column, or power query.

How can this be achieved please.

If you don't need the blank, no placement and NA rows anymore, then filter them out in PQ. 

= Table.SelectRows(Source, each ([LONG TERM PLACEMENT 1 ] <> "" and LONG TERM PLACEMENT 1 <> "NA" and LONG TERM PLACEMENT 1 <> "NO PLACEMENT"))

 You'll need to swap out Source for whatever your previous step was, or just modify the code in the formula bar.

 

If you need those rows, then there are ways to do it with either DAX or filters. 
You can consider using LONG TERM PLACEMENT 1 in a slicer and deselecting those unwanted values. Or, using DAX, something like:

Measure = CALCULATE(COUNTROWS(Table), FILTER(Table, 
    Table[LONG TERM PLACEMENT 1] not IN {"", "NO PLACEMENT", "N/A"})
)
