Custom column from another created using PATH

Dear all,

 

I have this data below, shown in the picture. The original data is from columns [parent] and [child]. I created [Contas] using PATH([child];[parent]), but I have another fact table that this PATH is in a different format, which I tried to recreate in [Contas (Planilhas)] using the formula below:

 

Contas (Planilhas) = IF([Length]=12;MID([Contas];1;1);
    IF([Length]=25;MID([Contas];1;1) & "|" & MID([Contas];15;1);
    IF([Length]=38;MID([Contas];1;1) & "|" & MID([Contas];15;1) & "|" & MID([Contas];29;2);
    IF([Length]=51;MID([Contas];1;1) & "|" & MID([Contas];15;1) & "|" & MID([Contas];29;2) & "|" & MID([Contas];44;2);
    IF([Length]=64;MID([Contas];1;1) & "|" & MID([Contas];15;1) & "|" & MID([Contas];29;2) & "|" & MID([Contas];44;2) & "|" & MID([Contas];59;2);
    IF([Length]=77;MID([Contas];1;1) & "|" & MID([Contas];15;1) & "|" & MID([Contas];29;2) & "|" & MID([Contas];44;2) & "|" & MID([Contas];59;2) & "|" & MID([Contas];74;2);
    "fazer"))))))

However, when I try to add the relatioship to the other table, I get an error saying I have a "Circular Dependency" from this table.

 

Any sugestions on how I could get this changed column in a better and smarter way, and why this is a Circular depent formula?

 

Thank you,

Eduardo

Thank you. I was able to create what I needed from the Query Editor, and then used PATH functions / relationships successfully.
