## Userelationship can only be used in calculate but already is.

Hey there to whom ever is reading this,

I've been working on a project now I'm trying to put in a measure that will use a inactive relationship only for a single graph, however when attempting this I get back an error saying "USERELATIONSHIP function can only be used in the CALCULATE function." while it already is in a Calculate function (code provided below). I assume that I am making a mistake on how to write this piece of dax code myself since I am still quite new to PowerBI as a whole I would appreciate any help you might be able to offer so I can get this to work 🙂

``````Date =
CALCULATE(
USERELATIONSHIP(Date_Dimensions[Date],TT_WK_DETAILS[TT_DATE])
)``````

Thank you so much in advance!

USERELATIONSHIP is a calculate modifier. You need to use it with a measure/expression as the first term.

``````Date =
USERELATIONSHIP(Date_Dimensions[Date],TT_WK_DETAILS[TT_DATE])
)``````

I understand so a count for example? However I am using dates here I am unsure of what would be a good measure to use for this excuse my ignorance still learning.

For anyone else running into this I figured it out using this inactive relationship I managed to average the worked hours using an average command in within the calculate I hope it helps for anyone in the future 🙂
