Add Attributs form another table

Hi dear community

 

Following problem to solve:

I habe two tables (only an overview of data):

 

Table 1 contains information for which period an employee is assigned to which region / location / group (see picture)

qwertzuiop_2-1600688532129.png

 

Table 2 contains information about which shift an employee is working on a specific date

 

What to do? - In table 2, the information should be attached in which region / place / group the employees work.

I am very grateful for your support.


Cheers

@qwertzuiop , New Columns like this in table 2

 

Area = maxx(filter(Table1, Table1[ID] =Table2[ID] && Table2[Date] >= Table1[Date_from] && Table2[Date] < = Table1[Date_to]),Table1[Area])

 

Same way repeat other two

 

Location = maxx(filter(Table1, Table1[ID] =Table2[ID] && Table2[Date] >= Table1[Date_from] && Table2[Date] < = Table1[Date_to]),Table1[Location])
Group = maxx(filter(Table1, Table1[ID] =Table2[ID] && Table2[Date] >= Table1[Date_from] && Table2[Date] < = Table1[Date_to]),Table1[Group])

Hi @qwertzuiop 

You can choose one of  2 solution.

1) Create a relationship with Table1(ID)-->Table2(ID) and create columns with Related() function . For example: create column in Table2 as Area=Related(Table1[Area]) and other columns

2)Use LOOKUPVALUE() Function without relations. for example: Create Column in Table2 as Area=LOOKUPVALUE(Table1[Area],Table1[ID],Table2[ID]) 

Thank you very much for your contribution, but I think it's not thas quick solved.

 

Why? Because the ID can/will occur several times in both tables, since the employee in table 1 may change the area every month and in table 2 he/she carry out a new shift every day.

 

So I have to check, in which time period (from-to) the date of the shift fits and matches the id.

Then it should be possible for me to tell you later, which employee performs a shift in which region based on the date.

 

Got it?

Thaaanks a lot.

Hi @amitchandak 

 

Sorry for my absence.

Thank you very much for your support.
The solution you gave me here works.

 

 

Have a nice day - you saved mine 😉

@qwertzuiop , I think a better idea to merge in power Bi. Select Table 2, merge Table1 and keep the required columns
