Add column from a different table

I have 2 tables "similar" to below

 

Table 1

IDCompany CodeCountryCity
150

Blah

Blah
260BlahBlah
350BlahBlah
431BlahBlah

 

Table 2

IDCompany CodeCompany NameCountryCity
150Company 1

Blah

Blah

260Company 2BlahBlah
350Company 1BlahBlah
430Company 3BlahBlah

 

How can I get the "Company Name" column in "Table 2" to display in "Table 1" so it puts the correct "Company Name" alongside the associated"Company Code" and if there is no corrosponding "Company Code" in "Table 2", then leave "Blank".   Similar to below...

Table 1

IDCompany CodeCompany NameCountryCity
150Company 1

Blah

Blah
260Company 2BlahBlah
350Company 1BlahBlah
431 BlahBlah

 

I am unsure the best approach to do this.  Thanks in advance.

Hi @StuartSmith 
Create an active relationship between Table 1 and Table 2 based on a common column like ID or Company Code.

Now go to your Table 1, add a new column and use below DAX;

CompanyName=RELATED(Table2[Company Name])

Hi, how are u?

 

First of all you should create a relation between these tables in here:

You just need to drag "Company" from table1 to "Company" from table2.

After, if you move the information from different table in the same chart, the information will match.

 

Regards!
