I have tables, need new field about one of the tables. How to proceed?

I think this is really simple but cannot come up with the answer.


I have table 1, with all my projects listed:

- project 1

- project 2

- project 3

- project 4

- project 5


- project 1000


Also table 2:

- project 3

- project Y

- project 5

- project 1000


These two tables are linked 1:1.

I am creating a visual (simple table) in which I can see for which projects in table 1, there is a corresponding project in table 2.

I succeeded in this already, but would like to make an additional filter for the visual: "Project present in Table 2?", which I can give a yes or no. Yes shows all projects from 1 that are also in 2, No shows all projects from 1 that are not in 2. 


How do I make this filter?

I tried a few thinks but  think I am on the wrong track. First of all: should I make a new column for this? If so, in table 1 or 2? Or in a new table?

Is your end goal to filter the table on the left to the table on the right? If yes, this filter can be set directly as shown in the picture.

Please try this New Column in Table 1

IsInTable2 = 

Table1[Column1] = RELATED('Table2'[Column1]),
Then you can use the slicer with column "IsInTable2" to filter the data.
If you found this useful, please accept it as a solution. Else, kudos will be great for efforts!
Thank you.

if you are building your visual ove table 1 column then create a new measure which you csn place in the same visual 

Measure =
IF ( ISEMPTY ( Table2 ), "No", "Yes" )
