DAX or Query: Compare two columns in different Tables

 

I have 2 tables and want to compare two columns (one from each) in query editor or dax. I just need a yes they (the text values) match or no (text values) don't match in a new column. Secondly I need a count of all the orders that do not match to table 2.

 Table 1 (Primary Table)

Order NoOrder Status
1234Resolved
1235Pending
1236Open
1237Resolved
1238Resolved
1239Pending

 

Table 2

Order NoOrder Status
1234Open
1235Resolved
1236

Pending

1237Resolved
1238Resolved
1239Open

 

 

I want a new column to be created (in either table) that shows when the Order status values in rows from each table match, as below:-

Order NoOrder StatusColumn 3
1234ResolvedNo Match
1235PendingNo Match
1236OpenMatch
1237ResolvedMatch
1238ResolvedMatch
1239PendingNo Match

 

Do i need to do this as a merge query or dax ?

 

Thanks

Hey add this to the measure if you don<t want to count the Blank rows

Count of MisMatch = CALCULATE(COUNTROWS(OEC_Service_Requests) , OEC_Service_Requests[Match/No Match__] = "No Match", OEC_Service_Requests[Status_Code ESR] <> BLANK())

Hi @aj1973 unfortunatelty this didn't work 😞 

 

The count is just giving me the count of all the rows in the 1st table not the new table created. 

 

Also I have a change in requirement I need the 3rd table to show the order no, order status from both table 1 and 2, and  new column to be created that shows when the Order status values in rows from each table match, as below:-

Order NoOrder Status (T1)

Order Status

(T2)

Column 3
1234OpenResolvedNo Match
1235ResolvedPendingNo Match
1236

Pending

OpenMatch
1237ResolvedResolvedMatch
1238ResolvedResolvedMatch
1239OpenPendingNo Match

 

I am getting duplicate rows when I take both table columns however can see the match/no match values. whereas if I do your example way it shows me all values as no match

Here is your file corrected

I changed the way of calculation: I added 2 columns to OEC_ Table:

 

 

I renamed the "No need table" and "No need measure" delete them if you want.

Hope you like it😁

@aj1973 thank you! There is an issue - the value are not suppose to be empty in the ESR status when there is no match it should have a value.

 

I'm not sure if its because I determined a 1:1 relationship.

@aj1973  Hi Amine,

 

I have a new table which is the different date range of orders (table 1) How do I move all the calculations to connect to the new table instead of the exisiting table 1?

 

I don't want to redo all the calculations.

 

Thanks

Indeed, 1:1 relationship is not recommended 

Better way is to add a Calendar Table and

 

but you are going to need to change some calculations.

 

another way is to filter out the Blank rows from the filter pane.

Hi @aj1973 I had the same issue as Rookzie, looks like the formula worked with no errors but the but all the results are a "match" ,

Looking at this again I see that my tables don't have a common column, the common column, when they interact the common column or the intersection is in another table. Do you know how I can do this?   

 

could you advise why this might be? thank you!

Hi @idaly 

Thank you for contacting me but this thread is more that a year old, there is always new things in Power Bi that I can help you with in your case. Besides every model is unqiue therefore can you share yours so I can be more helpfull?

As I replied to Rookzie, he needed to open a new thread however from what you have described maybe adding an external Excel file with a "Commun Column" could help you out!

So please Open a new thread and share your Model OR text me in Private if it would suits you better.
