## Compare 2 columns from 2 tables

Hello

I'm looking for a solution in DAX for a calculated column.

My problem is that I need to compare two columns of two tables with each other. Both tables have different inputs and only a few rows match each other.

For example: I have two tables A and B. Both have entries with dates and numbers.

I need to check the entries of both and print an output in the calculated column.

Table A:

 Date Number 12.01.2022 1111 12.01.2022 3333 23.02.2022 3333 23.02.2022 1111

Table B:

 Date Number Calculated column (Output) 23.02.2022 1111 Found in table A 28.01.2022 1111 Not found in table A 23.02.2022 2222 Not found in table A 12.01.2022 1111 Found in table A

How would I do this?

Thank you! Sincerely

Hi @ColinCH ,

you can try this

Column =
IF(
ISBLANK(
LOOKUPVALUE('Table A'[Number],
'Table A'[Date],'Table B'[Date],
'Table A'[Number],'Table B'[Number]
)
),
"Found in table A"
)
