Measure does not work

Dear all,
My below measure does not work...I guess it is related to the fact that it comes from two different fields "salesoffices" and "IObOL new (incl K Group)".
How to overcome this problem? Hopefully someone can help me...
Sales off vs Country = IF(SELECTEDVALUE(salesoffices[Sales office country]])=SELECTEDVALUE('IObOL new (incl K Group)'[Country name]),"identical","deviating")

Hi @Orstenpowers 

Thanks for reaching out to us.

I think the reason why measure doesn't work is that when the data comes from two tables, you can't directly use the selectedvalue() to get and compare them.  Generally speaking, we usually use the key between the two tables and then filter to get the corresponding row, and then compare. Can you share some sample data so I can investigate further. Thanks.

@Orstenpowers , Are these values selected in slicer?

Try like

Sales off vs Country = IF(Max(salesoffices[Sales office country]])=Max('IObOL new (incl K Group)'[Country name]),"identical","deviating")

I did not use a slicer.


Unfortunately your formula does not work. I get message that "column Sales office country]])=Max('IObOL new (incl K Group)'[Country name was not found in table "salesoffices" or is not being allowed to be used in this term...


What needs to be adjusted?
