Helper II

## If value is between two numbers from another table

Look up table:

 Product StartStep EndStep Apple 1 7 Apple 19 36 Apple 41 46 Apple 54 61 Orange 1 11 Orange 35 42 Orange 55 62

Fact table:

 Product Step YN Qty Apple 6 Yes 5 Apple 8 No 5 Apple 60 Yes 4 Orange 12 No 6 Orange 45 No 6 Orange 55 Yes 4

Result:

Apple = 9 qty (5+4)

Orange = 4 qty (4)

I'm trying to create a YN calculated column in the fact table. Yes/No if Step from fact table is between StartStep and EndStep from look up table. Then, filter YN column to calculate the total qty of the products.

What would be the best way to approach this?

Trty this code to add a new column by using DAX:

``````YN Column =
VAR _Step = 'Fact'[Step]
RETURN
IF (
CALCULATE (
COUNTROWS ( 'Look up' ),
FILTER (
'Look up',
'Look up'[Product] = EARLIER ( 'Fact'[Product] )
&& 'Look up'[EndStep] >= _Step
&& 'Look up'[StartStep] <= _Step
)
) > 0,
"Yes",
"No"
)
``````

 Thanks to the great efforts by MS engineers to simplify syntax of DAX! Most beginners are SUCCESSFULLY MISLED to think that they could easily master DAX; but it turns out that the intricacy of the most frequently used RANKX() is still way beyond their comprehension! DAX is simple, but NOT EASY!
