Hi @tctrout 

 

Thanks for the help, was able to resolve using below 

 

Property_Manager = CALCULATE(FIRSTNONBLANK(Table2[Name],1),
filter(all(Table2),
Table2[Type] ="Property Manager" &&
'Table1'[Id] = Table2[Id]))

I know this is an older thread, but for future reference isn't it easier to just use the second lookup parameters of LOOKUPVALUE?:

LOOKUPVALUE(
   'Table2'[Name], 'Table2'[Id], 'Table1'[Id], 'Table2[Type], "Manager")

this is the only correct answer !

Hi @nagaraj ,

 

We can try to create a calculated column in 'Table 1' to meet your requirement:

Manager =
CALCULATE (
    MAX ( 'Table 2'[name] ),
    'Table 2'[Type] = "Manager",
    'Table 2'[id] = 'Table 1'[id]
)

 


Best regards,

 HI, 

 

 Thanks for the help, was able to resolve this using the below 

 

Property_Manager = CALCULATE(FIRSTNONBLANK(Table2[Name],1),
filter(all(Table2),
Table2[Type] ="Property Manager" &&
'Table1'[Id] = Table2[Id]))

The approach I would explore in M Code, not DAX.. This can be done within the GUI interface

 

Create copy of Table 2

Filter for Manager only

Remove duplicates on ID, if eixists.  This should provide you a table of manangers, their names and ID

 

Go to Table 1 and merge table 2 using ID as the key/lookup value.
