Problem with Measure using COUNT or DISTINCTCOUNT (values not being counted)

Hello,

I am trying to use a measure that uses DISTINCTCOUNT and several of my items are not being counted.

 

I have simplified my measure to the minimum (eliminated all filters and conditions) to troubleshoot and even just a basic COUNT is not working as expected.  I am down to a table with 2 items in it, I am trying to count the number of items based the field named PR ID.

 

When I add the field to a table (or a bar chart) and use Count or Count (Distinct), I get the expected count of 2.

 

When I use a Measure with COUNT or DISTINCTCOUNT from that same field, only one of the 2 items is being counted and I get a result of 1 (instead of 2).

Any help with what might be going on would be greatly appreciated as I cannot figure out what might be going on here.

Thanks!

Thank you @Bmejia, the table that the measure was in had a filter that carried over from my copy/paste and I did not realize it (and feel pretty bad for not seeing that!) .  All good now.

I would double check you don't have anything filtering the measures.  I recreated the same measure with just the two PR ID and I am getting 2 not 1. )-:
