If Statement/ Related Formula assistance

Wanting to create a formula that essentially does a vlook up across fields. Trying to create an out put that would show if the data from table A matches table B, would be great to generate a yes or no outcome.
 
Below is the latest formula I have tried but getting the error message "Function RELATED expects a fully qualified column reference as its argument. "
 
If(RELATED('Previous Report'[Concat2]='Export'[concat2]),1,0)

If you are making it as a new column in "Export" table and there is a relationship between "Export" and "Report" then change the statement to :

 

If(RELATED('Previous Report'[Concat2])='Export'[concat2],1,0)

 

Only 1 parenthesis in the wrong place 🙂

Hi @sreaves,

 

I think you may try to use LOOKUPVALUE function.

For your sample, the calculated column may look like:

 

Column = IF(ISBLANK(LOOKUPVALUE('Previous Report'[Concat2],'Previous Report'[Concat2],'Export'[concat2],"NO")),0,1)

 

Please try.

It looks like the extra ")" did the trick. Thanks for catching that.

Hi @sreaves,
