Calculate sum by Dates in New Table

I have two tables. One has many values for each day. The other has one value for each day. I am trying to sum the values from each day in the first table to the second table. For example:

If table 1 looked like this:

 12/31/2019 4:00 AM 1 12/31/2019 8:37 PM 0.89 1/1/2020 5:00 PM 0.99 1/3/2020 6:07 AM 12 1/3/2020 8:00 PM 3

Then table 2 would look like this:

 12/31/2019 1.89 1/1/2020 0.99 1/2/2020 0 1/3/2020 15

I have connected the tables with a one to many relationship and have used this formula before, with other sources to get this result: Calculate(Sum('Table 1'[Column 1])) but am unable to get it to work on this particular data source. I have tried as many relationships as I can, just can't seem to get this one to work. Is there any other way to get this to work?

I see 2 option

1. easy:

drop relationships, create new table

NewTable = UNION(Table1, Table2)

then summarize in visual

2. more classical

create a calendar table

CalendarTable = CALENDARAUTO()

OnlyDate = DATEVALUE(Table1[Date])

add relationships between CalendarTable and Table1 by new OnlyDate field and between CalendarTable and Table2 by field Date

then add final column into CalendarTable

Column = CALCULATE(SUM(Table1[Value])+SUM(Table2[Value]))

I use the date columns as the field.

Do both tables contain date or is one of them datetime?

I have tried both of them being date/time and the one I am going to being date and the one I'm coming from being date/time.

Add an extra column in the table with date-time (duplicate of Date-Time column ) and format it to date, later use it to build a relationship.
