Add to a "Summarize" Table

Hi, I have created a new table with the "Summarize" function. 

 

New Table = SUMMARIZE(Sales,Sales[Part Number],"Total Sales per Item",
CALCULATE(Sales[Sales Value]))
 
How can I also bring in the Year column from the Sales Table?  Seems as if the summarize function only accept measures. The year column is in a text type format.
 
There is a relationship between the New Table and Sales Table.  If I attempt to add the year to the New Table, link column, which is 'part number', change to multiple rows in the New Table.
 
Then the relationship change to 'many to many' and the data no longer makes sense.  I want to filter on the year, and both visuals, from both tables, must be interactive.

Hi, @vrossouw 

Based on your description, it is available to create a calculated table as follows.

New = SUMMARIZE(

    Sales,

    Sales[Part Number],

    Sales[Year],

    "Total Sales per Item",

    CALCULATE(SUM(Sales[Sales Value])

))

While the result of summarize function is the same as the sales table. If you want to repeat a table, you can click ‘Edit Query’, go to Query Editor, right-click the sales query and choose ‘Duplicate’ to get a same table.

If you want to filter on the year, you can use ‘Part Number’, ‘Sales Value’ in a table visual and use ‘Year’ as the slicer to filter it.

If I misunderstand your thought, please show me your expected output. I am glad to solve the problem for you.

Hi @vrossouw,

 

 

New Table = SUMMARIZE(Sales,Sales[Part Number],Sales[Year],"Total Sales per Item and Year",
CALCULATE(Sales[Sales Value]))

 

 

does it make sense what you want to do?

Why is there a relationship between the New Table and Sales Table?
