Comparison of two values in a matrix

I am having trouble with the comaprison issue described below.  I have 2 tables (A & B in the example) joined by the column called Group.  The join is many in table A to one in table B.  Both table A and table B have a "type."  It is possible that the type from table A is not equal to the type from table B and when this happens I need to flag the record.  In the example, item 4 from table A shows a type of corn, but it is joined to table B as a fruit and table B has a type of apple, not corn, so this should flag (and conditional format) in the resulting matrix.  I would also like to flag it at the group level so that if the matrix is collapsed, the user can see that the data at the next level down is out of sync.

TableA:  
   
ItemTypeGroup
1AppleFruit
2AppleFruit
3AppleFruit
4CornFruit
5CornVegetable
6CornVegetable

 

Table B: 
  
GroupType
FruitApple
VegetableCorn

 

Table A & B are joined on Group.

Report (matrix):    
     
Group Type (from Table A)Type (from Table B)Flag
Fruit AppleApple1
 1AppleApple0
 2AppleApple0
 3AppleApple0
 4CornApple1
Vegetable CornCorn0
 5CornCorn0
 6CornCorn0

you can merge tables in PQ

then create a column

flag = if(TableA[Type in Table A]=TableA[Type in Table B],0,1)
