Can't Sum to linked tables

Hi

New to Power BI and moving some reports from Access

I have 2 tables one with Data and one a reference table

The linked filed is Queston Code

I want to sum how may utilised there are by Survey Type

But it is only summing how may time it occurs in the reference table (BI_Activities), see below, How can I calculate how many times it matches with the main data (BI_SurveyData)

hi @flemingg62 

you can use a measure that CROSSFILTER the relationship to 2way
Total Utilized = 

CALCULATE ( SUM ( BI_Activitie[Utilised] ), CROSSFILTER ( BI_Activities[Question Qode],BI_SurveyData[Question Qode], BOTH ) )
