Relationship issue

Hi Power BI Community,

 

I have a following data model where I have two chart of accounts of different companies mapped by connecting key.  I'd like to see the G/L Account of  Company A side by side by GL account of Company B even though they have nothing in common except for that connecting key.  Due to the relationship key is the yellow highlighted field, I connot apply the filter to company A's from the GL information of Company B.  Please could you let me know what I should do in this situation?  I tried relatedtable function, calculalte and crossfilter between Company A and Company B's inactive relationship, but I cannot properly filter the GL account information of Company A from Company B's GL and vice versa.  Thank you for your help.

Hi @DataNinja777,

 

You cannot use an inactive relationship to filter table A from a column in table B like you can with an active relationship. You need to use USERELATIONSHIP to invoke such a relationship in a measure and put that measure in your visual.

=
CALCULATE (
    SUM ( tableB[Column] ),
    USERELATIONSHIP ( tableA[key], tableB[key] )
)

 

But I'm curious, since you have a related table in between thet two fact tables, why not use that instead?

Thanks you @danextian 

The combination of calculate, userelationship, and crossfilter produced the output I was after 😉
