Creating a Column AND then creating a diff table with different values

I am not sure if this is an option, but I have tried many things but it is not working the way I want, so I'm here asking for help to see if this is an option, and if so, how do I complete this request.


I have a table that has several different fields including: Market, Date, and Period.  Below is an example of the data:




This table will continue thousands of data, since we have information for each day, each market for several periods.





What I have created is a matrix that highlights the days that need to be reviewed (normally due to a drop in volume) with an IF formula ....  Researched = IF ( ALL_CYCLE [CHANGE] <0, 5, IF (ALL_CYCLE [CHANGE] = 0, 0, IF ( ALL_CYCLE [CHANGE] >0, 10, 0)))ss01.png


What I am looking for is creating another column named "Research" for those Market-Days-Periods that were researched, so we can change the matrix color from teal to yellow.  I know I can do this through conditional formating, however I don't know how to use a new table or merged duplicate table to update those accordingly.


I have created a column with "Research" and made them all '0'.  Then used the Append Query as New and duplicated the original query.  I filtered out a few Market-Day-Periods and used Replace Values to '20' so I could use conditional formating to change that.  However I am unable to update the above "IF Formula" to include IF ( Updated_ALL_CYCLE [Research] = 20, 20) since it won't pick up the second query within the formula.


Any assistance would greatly be appreciated.  Thanks in advance!

hi, @CA8172

first, the column that added by DAX in modeling couldn't be used in Edit Queries, 

Could please share your simple sample pbix file or some data sample and expected output. You can upload it to OneDrive or Dropbox and post the link here. Do mask sensitive data before uploading.
