## count ifs

I am trying to count the number of floors per building per facility.  I am using two measures to get this but it is not working

Facility Count = COUNTROWS('public facilities')
CALCULATE('Measure Table'[Facility Count],'public buildings'[id],'public floors'[id])

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

@ghe7549  This is because you have [Floor] still in the table. A couple of things you can do, either use a matrix visual instead to get the subtotals;

[Count of Floors] in Values

[Facility] in Rows

[Building] in Rows

[Floor] in Rows

Expand down to all levels using the double connected arrows (looks like a fork kind of) at top of matrix.

Count of All Floors = CALCULATE(COUNTA('public facilities'[name]) , ALL('public facilities'[floor]))

@AllisonKennedy   I created the measure count of floor ( COUNTA('public facilities'[name]) ).  I am still not geting the floors to total up.  If you look at the first one there is 2 garages with 6 floors each.  I am needing it to be North Garage 6 floors and West Garage 6 Floors.

@ghe7549  The countifs in DAX comes down to how you use it, if you want to count number of floors, simply create a measure:

Count of Floors = COUNTA('public facilities'[name])

Then put this in a table or matrix visual. If using a matrix, put:

[Count of Floors] in Values

[Facility] in Rows

[Building] in Rows

If using a table, just put them in this order:

[Facility]

[Building]

[Count of Floors]

If you want distinct count, use @camargos88  formula.

You can also use the COUNTROWS formula you have already created if you want to include blank values in your count.

Hope that makes sense?

Have you tried DISTINCTCOUNT('public facilities'[name]) ?
