I'm so new to Power Pivot I might be dangerous. 🙂 Meaning my grasps of formula creation (measured or otherwise is limited).
I work in a procurement organization and we track the metrics related to our suppliers, which is information pulled from multiple systems and compiled into a single excel file. From this reports are generated (nothing automated), but I and trying to add a level of automation to this process. I've done a decent job in automating the count of suppliers and subcontract agreements across multiple division, program, and suppliers, but have a difficult time determining a the correct measure formula need to produce the count I actually need (last piece of the puzzle).
Initially, I started with using DISTINCTCOUNT applied to a supplier ID, which does give me the exact count of suppliers within a division, but I need to the count to reflect the total suppliers within a division based on how many programs they are working on. Ex: if they work on Program A and B, I need my count to be 2 not 1, which is what DISTINTCOUNT programs.
Below is a sample of data, if I use DISTINCTCOUNT I have a total of 7 suppliers, but I actually need to have the count of 10 based on the program within the division. Any help would be greatly appreciated it.
The measure DAF formula I currently have is =DISTINCTCOUNT(SupplierData[Supplier ID])
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Works perfectly. Thank you!
If I may ask a follow on question. I am looking to use my pivot table as part of my dashboard and right now I have a filter that a column-based True / False. However, it adds the filter above my pivot table, which I don't want to have on the dashboard, I would just prefer it not be there.
So I'm thinking it would be easier to just add the filter to the formula you provided, but can't seem to figure out its placement within the formula. Do you need to filter first then do the sumx and distinctcount? Or would sum and calculate first then filter out all the "False" rows leaving the count of "True" only. Thanks
= SUMX ( VALUES ( Table2[Program Name] ), CALCULATE ( DISTINCTCOUNT ( Table2[Supplier] ) ) )
