## Need help with measure VALUES

Proposed Time = IF([Proposed Time] > 0, [Proposed Time], IF(VALUES('Table2'[Time(mins)])>0,VALUES('Table2'[Time(mins]),IF('Table2'[Allocated Time]>0,'Table2'[Allocated Time],BLANK())))

I have a measure as per above
'Table2'[Time(mins)] is a column value in Table2.
However, if i use VALUES('Table2'[Time(mins)]) in the measure, it significantly slows down the processing speed of the report.

How can I work around this/ how do i convert the column to a measure instead so i dont have to use the DAX function VALUES.

Hi @ephramz ,

According to your description, I create a sample, Proposed Time is a column in table, while Time(mins) in another table, the two tables have relationship. When you use VALUES function, if the sample has more results meet the criteria, an error will occurred,because VALUES function returns a column, you can try to use MAX function to return the current value, but if measure have multiple results you will get only max result by Max function.

Here's the VALUES function you can refer.

If it still not work, please provide me with more details about your sample.
