Calcuting sum of column from Table A and Multiply by value in Table B

I essentially need to Calculate Hourly Rate * Sum of Hours for User.

 

Table: HR Data (This table has one row for each user)

User ID, Hourly Rate

450294, $40

345020, $56

837498, $43

 

Table: Time Log Data (This table has many rows for users with many projects and dates

User ID, Project, Hours

450294, Project A, 20

450294, Project B, 80

450294, Project C, 5

345020, Project A, 40

345020, Project B, 40

345020, Project C, 20

837498, Project A, 13

837498, Project B, 20

837498, Project C, 5

 

Any ideas? I'm open to doing a measure OR creating a new table. But I was not able to make a custom column in one table because I could not get it to pull data from the other.

You can create a relationship between the two tables and use the following measure. Insert a Table Visual on the canvas, insert user id from User table and the measure

Total = 
SUMX(
    Users,
    Users[ Hourly Rate] * CALCULATE(SUM('Time Log'[ Hours]))
)
