## How to force or make a measure to use the relationship in DAX

Hi all,

I have two "Many to One" relationships in the Tabular Model to Dates table where Table1 is a Fact table and Dates is a dimensin table as mentioned below:

'Table1'[Date Key] --> 'Dates'[Date Key]

'Table1'[ReceiptDateKey] --> 'Dates'[Date Key]

I have a measure X which is SUM ( 'Table1'[Sale] ), I wanted to force or make this measure X to use the relationship 'Table1'[ReceiptDateKey] --> 'Dates'[Date Key] in the DAX calculations.

How I can achieve this, please can you help with DAX Command.

Regards,

Ranjan.

Hi, @Anonymous

I assume you have active relationship: 'Table1'[Date Key] --> 'Dates'[Date Key]

inactive relationship: 'Table1'[ReceiptDateKey] --> 'Dates'[Date Key]

Measure X = calculate ( SUM ( 'Table1'[Sale] ), userelationship ( 'Table1'[ReceiptDateKey] , 'Dates'[Date Key] ))

Thank you @Jihwan_Kim

To be honest, I will be creating the second relationship 'Table1'[ReceiptDateKey] --> 'Dates'[Date Key] and first relationship already exist in the model - 'Table1'[Date Key] --> 'Dates'[Date Key]

I don't know how to verify active and inactive relationships in the model, is there a way to check this or we need to assign active or inactive in the relationships/measure somewhere?

Hi, @Anonymous

If you have only one relationship between two tables, the connected line on the Data Model Page will show a line (active).

If you create a second relationship between the same-two tables, that already have the first relationship, the second connection line will show a dotted line (inactive).

You can control which one shows the active line and which one shows the inactive line.

Thank you.
