## Calculated Table from Another Table Info

Hi,

I have a table with below information on Power BI:

 ID Benefit Date Saving/year 1 1/1/2013 \$5 2 3/5/2014 \$3 3 4/6/2014 \$15 4 5/5/2015 \$20 5 8/8/2015 \$27

This table has an ID and for that ID the annual savings numbers and when the first benefit date would be.

I need to create a new calculated table. This table will get the ID and Savings/year information form the above table. However, it needs to create one row per ID and years between 2013-2023. So for every ID number, there would be a row with a year between 2013 and 2023. It will look like below:

 ID Year Saving/year Calculated Savings 1 2013 \$5 Calculate the savings for the year 1 2012 \$5 Calculate the savings for the year 1 2014 \$5 Calculate the savings for the year 1 2015 \$5 Calculate the savings for the year 2 2013 \$3 Calculate the savings for the year 2 2012 \$3 Calculate the savings for the year 2 2014 \$3 Calculate the savings for the year 2 2015 \$3 Calculate the savings for the year 3 2013 \$15 Calculate the savings for the year 3 2012 \$15 Calculate the savings for the year 3 2014 \$15 Calculate the savings for the year 3 2015 \$15 Calculate the savings for the year 4 2013 \$20 Calculate the savings for the year 4 2012 \$20 Calculate the savings for the year 4 2014 \$20 Calculate the savings for the year 4 2015 \$20 Calculate the savings for the year 5 2013 \$27 Calculate the savings for the year 5 2012 \$27 Calculate the savings for the year 5 2014 \$27 Calculate the savings for the year 5 2015 \$27 Calculate the savings for the year

Any suggestions on how I can do this. Initially, I've created one table with all IDs and for each calendar year savings I've made a calculated column. But because the years were in the columns, I wasn't able to create a relationship. I need to have both the IDs and years in rows as above so I can create a relationship with their columns.

So, something like this?

```Table3 =
VAR __ids = DISTINCT(SELECTCOLUMNS('Table2',"__ID",[ID]))
VAR __years = DISTINCT(SELECTCOLUMNS(ADDCOLUMNS(SELECTCOLUMNS(Table2,"__Date",[Benefit Date]),"__Year",YEAR([__Date])),"__Year",[__Year]))
VAR __table = GENERATEALL(__ids,__years)
VAR __table1 = ADDCOLUMNS(__table,"__Savings/year",MAXX(FILTER('Table2',[ID] = [__ID]),[Saving/year]))
RETURN __table1
See attached.```

Thank you very much this worked! However, I face another problem now with a circular reference.  Can there be anything in the DAX code that can cause this?

The table I've just created with your code was a savings table.  I have another table with spendings. These two tables are non in a direct relationship, I have other tables in between.

In order for me to have a line and stacked column chart, my idea was to use an auto-generated dates table that would have a relationship with each of these tables individually. However, this results in a circular reference. And without this relationship, I can't create this graph where they have a common date.
