Conditional column and the value matching from different table.

I am trying to add a column and the value will depend on data from different sheets. Like i have imported two sheets 1 and 2.

 

and trying to add a column that if value of column A in sheet1 is available in sheet2's coulmn A then return NO else YES but when i am trying to write below equation, i am not able to add 'Sheet2'[A].

 

New_Updated = IF(Sheet1'[New]=".",".",IF(ISERROR(IN('Sheet1'[A],'Sheet2'[A], 0)),"YES", "NO"))
 
Can you please help me, Do i need to create some relationship?

Hi  @amanuit ,

I created some data:

sheet1:

sheet2:

vyangliumsft_1-1660024060362.png

Here are the steps you can follow:

1. Create calculated column.

Column =
IF(
    'sheet1'[column A] in SELECTCOLUMNS('sheet2',"column A",'sheet2'[coulmn A]),"YES","NO")

2. Result:

Hi  @amanuit ,

One of your Values is of Type Text and the other value is of Integer, and you need to convert it to the same type so that you can compare.

I am trying to match value of sheet1 with Sheet2.

My value is in format of SR-324, PR-423.

Getting error message, "DAX Comparison do not support comparing value of type Text with value of type integer, consider using the value or Format function to convert one of the values", How can i solve this?

Hello Amit, Thank you for reply.

I am not able to enter table1.

I am getting error that column Table1[A] either does not exist or doesnot have a relationship to any table available in the current context.

I also tried to create relationship between two table, many to many.

@amanuit , If you want to check if the value is there in another table or not

 

A new column in table 1

= var _cnt = countx(filter(Table2, Table2[A] = Table1[A]) , Table2[A])

return

if(isblank(_cnt), false() , true())

 

refer 4 ways to copy data from one table to another
