## Help me to write the DAX formula using Filter Function to Link Tables

I have the four following table:

Table 1: (Main Table)

 Date ID Full Time Equivalent 30/06/2023 100 30.0 30/06/2023 200 20.0 31/05/2023 100 30.0 31/05/2023 200 20.0

Table 2: (Primary Key)

 Date Key 30/06/2023 31/05/2023 30/04/2023 31/03/2023

Table 3: (Primary Key)

 ID Key 100 200 300

Table 4: (ID Table)

 Date ID Team Department Division 30/06/2023 100 XYZ MNO OPQ 31/05/2023 100 ZXY MNO OPQ 30/04/2023 100 ZXY LOM OPQ

Here are the relationship details:

1) Table 1 [Date] > Many to One>Table 2 [Date Key]>One to Many> Table 4 [Date]

2) Table 1 [ID] > Many to One>Table 3 [ID Key]>One to Many> Table 4 [ID]

As the ID moves to various teams and departments every month, I need to create a measure that will give the summation of full-time equivalents by date, department, division, etc. as follows:

FTE = CALCULATE(

SUM(Table1[Full Time Equivalent]),

FILTER(Table 4, Table 4[Date] = 'Table 2'[Date Key])

)

This measure will first filter Table 4 in the Date column. Then, it will calculate the sum of the full-time equivalent column in Table 1 for the filtered rows. It is showing an error as follows: "This can happen when a measure formula refers to a column that contains many values without specifying an aggregation such as min, max, count, or sum to get a single result."

Can anyone please help me write the formula so that FTE will filter by date, department, division, etc.?

Thanks @ERD. Unfortunately it shows the following message: Failed to resolve name 'SELECTEDVALUE'. It is not a valid table, variable, or function name.
