Compare two tables to find missing equipment inspections

I have two tables.

  • Table 1 has a MASTER LIST of equipment numbers.
  • Table 2 has a list of dates the equipment numbers were inspected.


I need to be able to use the dates inspected from Table 2 as a slicer to produce a list showing which equipment numbers were inspected, and another list showing which ones were not inspected. 


I have tried the following:

  1. Measure subtracting distict values for equipment numbers from both tables - This did not work as once the date slicer was used, the list for not inspected equipment disapears, even with the show blank data turned on. 
  2. Appended both tables to create a new Dimention table. - This did not work for the same reasons as #1. 
  3. Merged both tables, however this did not seam to work for the same reasons as before.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi @rshifflet , I had similar issue as you. I found a way which described in my latest post here:


The key point there, is to create an intermediate table which is needed in your case as well. That table should has a column Named like IsInspected. A value for this column should be evaluated (last IF expression in my post).

After that, you can place two instances of the new table and filter content by selecting in a filter different values of IsInspected column.


Hope it can helps you
