Comparting values from different tables based on conditions

Hey guys!


I'm having troubles trying to compare values from two different tables. The situation is the following: I have two tables, "Enhancements" and "Budget", and I need to compare a value that is present on each of these.


Enhancements Table

ID - Cost Status - Cost

01 - Estimated - 100

02 - Estimated - 200

03 - Confirmed - 250


Budget Table

ID - Cost Status - Cost

01 - Planned - 100

01 - Actual - 120

01 - Projection - 100

02 - Planned - 200

02 - Actual - 220

02 - Projection - 200


So, while one table has a single cost, the other table has 3 different cost values.


These tables are connectec through a fact table, like this:




What I need to do is, create a calculated table that can compare the cost values present on both of these tables, but respecting it's status. So for example:

Compare cost of ID 01 on both tables, where "estimated" status is equal "planned" on the other table, and do the same for the status "confirmed", where it equals "actual" on the other table.


I tried the following:

Compare = LOOKUPVALUE(Compare[Cost];Compare[ID];Budget[ID]; FILTER(Budget;Budget[Status]="Planned"))


It doesn't work though 😕


Can anyone help me with that?

Create a calculate column on Budget Table using DAX like this:



Compare Cost =
    [Cost status],
    "Planned", LOOKUPVALUE (
        Enhancements Table[Cost],
        Enhancements Table[ID], Budget Table[ID],
        Enhancements Table[Cost Status], "Estimated "
    "actual", LOOKUPVALUE (
        Enhancements Table[Cost],
        Enhancements Table[ID], Budget Table[ID],
        Enhancements Table[Cost Status], "confirmed"

Hi @v-yuta-msft


Thanks a lot for the reply!


Your code doesn't seem to be doing anything. What I need to do is, compare the costs on both tables, so I can know which are different and which have the same value, so I can show them and etc.
