Qlik -> Power BI DAX Scripting Question

Good evening everyone,

So we have a report in Qlik we are trying to move over to Power BI. One of the expressions is 
COUNT(ID)/COUNT(TOTAL <YEAR> ID)

We translated this to another example in Qlik using the AGGR() function as well, AGGR(NODISTINCT COUNT(ID), YEAR)

Now here's the issue, we have replaced some expressions in Qlik with Set Analysis and/or AGGR using Caculate and SUMX, COUNTX, etc.

This is our first example that uses TOTAL in Count() or NODISTINCT with AGGR(), neither of which appear to have a 1:1 relationship with anything in DAX. We thought we could replace TOTAL with ALL() or ALLSELECTED(), but the results simply don't match up. 

For example, the following DAX expressions we tried don't match Qlik for the Year

COUNTX(ALL('Table1'[ID]), CALCULATE(Count('Table1'[Year])))
CALCULATE(COUNT('Table1'[ID]), ALLSELECTED('Table1'[Year]))
CALCULATE(COUNT('Table1'[ID])), ALL('Table1'[Year]))


We wanted to see if the community might have any advice or thoughts. 


Thank you

HI @Csummers828,

I think you can try to use SUMMARIZE and aggregation functions(e.g. sumx, averagex, countx) to use Dax expression to achieve equivalence effects.
