Lookup value not working

Hi all


I have used a lookupvalue in calcuated column, for some reason I do not know, the lookupvalue does not retrurn the value on all the rows:




As seen above, the column Merged Demand Incremental has repeated values but it only displays the result for the a 2023 year and a null for the rest.


Does anybody know what could be wrong?

Could be because of some extrac charactes in the Merged string of both/one table.  If it does not help, then share the download link of the PBI file.

It could possibly be an issue that there is more than one possible value for lookup conditions. If you check the docs, LOOKUPVALUE() will only give a value if there is one distinct value, but you can specify an alternative value if that case happens.
