Hi, @tchchan3

Based on your description, I created data to reproduce your scenario. The pbix file is attached in the end.

Table:

Test:

You may create measures as below.

``DistinctCount of Words = SUM('Table'[Value])``
``````Result Measure =
var t =
'Table',
"Re",
[DistinctCount of Words]
)
var tab =
Test,
"Result",
SWITCH(
[Results of Distinct Count],
"1",
COUNTROWS(
FILTER(
t,
[Re]=1
)
),
"2",
COUNTROWS(
FILTER(
t,
[Re]=2
)
),
">=2",
COUNTROWS(
FILTER(
t,
[Re]>=2
)
)
)
)
return
SUMX(
tab,
[Result]
)``````

Result:

Best Regards

Hello @tchchan3

you can solve this in DAX by creating a new table using the SUMMARIZE function where you make the distinct count and depending on the output of this, writing in a new column 1, 2 or >=2. Then using this created table in your pivot-table. Here a possible code

``````CountDistinctCount = SUMMARIZE(YOURTABLE
, YOURTABLE[COLUMNTODISTINCTCOUNT], "CountOfDistinctCount", if (COUNT(YOURTABLE[COLUMNTODISTINCTCOUNT])=1, "1", if (COUNT(YOURTABLE[COLUMNTODISTINCTCOUNT])=2, "2", ">=2")))``````
