I would say who creates a complex table shouldn't expect a simple way to count the rows there ...

Depending on the complexity a macro-solution might look as the easiest way but even there it might not trivial especially if there are visibility-conditions applied a simple row-count may not always work and more expensive and advanced approches might be necessary. Beside this you would need to ensure that this macro would be triggered by each user-action in the application and which may lead to side-effects. In general it's not recommended to use macros within the UI.

Therefore the way which I do recommend for it is to apply a distinct count of all used dimensions of the table. In the case that there are various set analysis used which may overwrite the applied selections and could therefore have an impact of the number of shown dimension-values you need to include them with the above mentioned count, too - and it could further mean that not a single count may be enough else you may need multiple ones within a range-function and/or some aggr() to consider all possibilities. See as a starting point my comment here:

Row-Count-Macros-not-working-in-Straight-table 

In the end I suggest to simplify your approach especially by splitting the table into several ones with less complexity. Who wants and could really use such huge tables?
