Power BI is counting the header!

Hello Community,


Has anyone encountered this issue?
I am using the distinct count in a card visual, not a DAX, just simply selecting my text column, and from the fields I selected the aggregation type is "distinct count". It was working perfectly previously but now it's counting the header!


Any suggestions on how to avoid this?

Hi @NourJ ,

If I understand correctly, you are apply one Text type field on the card visual with the aggregation "Count(Distinct)", it worked before. But now it is not working and counting the header instead of that field. Am I right? Is the problem persist on? What do you mean that counting the header? Could you please provide some raw data in your table (exclude sensitive data) with Text format and your expected result with backend logic and special examples? It would be helpful to find out the solution. You can refer the following links to share the required info:

And It is better if you can share a simplified pbix file. You can refer the following link to upload the file to the community. Thank you.
