Create a DAX relationship

Hi,

 

I have a situation where i have two tables: Category and Products. I want to combine these to a visual. However, this would require a relationship that links Product 1,2,3,4 to "Products" category. I could just create a calculated column for this, but that would be redundant. 

Can i create this relationship with DAX? How?

Hi @CarlsBerg999 ,

 

Based on your description, I create a measure as follows.

test = 

SUMX(FILTER(ALL('Products'),LEFT(MAX('Products'[Products]),3)=LEFT(SELECTEDVALUE('Categories'[Categories]),3)),[Price])

Result:

The ideal step will be create a Key column then make a relationship by virtual or physical..

 

if you dont want to create any column then  simple Switch or if statement also will help you to acheive this

@CarlsBerg999 , Created a calculated column is an idea going to work here. Is the service also have data coming from another table?

Yes, I would like to avoid making calculated columns. Isn't there a way to create this relationship with a measure?
