## Two tables - creating a measure/column

Hello!  I have a quick question... I have two tables that are connected by a many to many relationship.  I am trying to create some measures of hand calculations but I'm a bit stuck.

This is what I have right now....  Two tables:  Downtime Report and OR Report

This table includes: Downtime Report[Date], Downtime Report[Plant and Line], OR Report [ Planned OR%], OR Report [Line Result], Downtime Report[ Total Assembly DT Min], Downtime Report[Line Stop Downtime - NAM Ops - Operations DT Mins], Downtime Report[% of DT Minutes]

I now need to create a complicated formula to create a new percentage, but it needs the percentages from the OR Report table, and the % of DT Minutes from the Downtime Report.  Here is the formula that I'd need to create:

= if(

if(( OR Report [Line Result] - OR Report [ Planned OR%]) < 0 , OR Report [Line Result] - (OR Report [Line Result]- OR Report [ Planned OR%]) * Downtime Report[% of DT Minutes] , OR Report [Line Result] + (OR Report [Line Result] - OR Report [ Planned OR%]) * Downtime Report[% of DT Minutes]) > 100%, 100%,

if (( OR Report [Line Result]- OR Report [ Planned OR%]) < 0, OR Report [Line Result]- (OR Report [Line Result]- OR Report [ Planned OR%]) * Downtime Report[% of DT Minutes], OR Report [Line Result]+ (OR Report [Line Result]- OR Report [ Planned OR%]) * Downtime Report[% of DT Minutes])

Is this possible??

You may try using SELECTEDVALUE function to get the distinct value of each percentage used in the calculation. As these percentages are from two tables, it would be better to use a measure.

For example (I only extract some part from your formula):

``````Adjusted OR =
IF (
SELECTEDVALUE ( 'OR Report'[Line Result] ) - SELECTEDVALUE ( 'OR Report'[ Planned OR%] ) < 0,
SELECTEDVALUE ( 'OR Report'[Line Result] ) - ( SELECTEDVALUE ( 'OR Report'[Line Result] ) - SELECTEDVALUE ( 'OR Report'[ Planned OR%] ) ) * SELECTEDVALUE ( 'Downtime Report'[% of DT Minutes] ),
SELECTEDVALUE ( 'OR Report'[Line Result] ) + ( SELECTEDVALUE ( 'OR Report'[Line Result] ) - SELECTEDVALUE ( 'OR Report'[ Planned OR%] ) ) * SELECTEDVALUE ( 'Downtime Report'[% of DT Minutes] )
)
``````

or

``````Adjusted OR =
VAR vLineResult = SELECTEDVALUE ( 'OR Report'[Line Result] )
VAR vPlannedORPct = SELECTEDVALUE ( 'OR Report'[ Planned OR%] )
VAR vDTMinutesPct = SELECTEDVALUE ( 'Downtime Report'[% of DT Minutes] )
RETURN
IF (
vLineResult - vPlannedORPct < 0,
vLineResult - ( vLineResult - vPlannedORPct ) * vDTMinutesPct,
vLineResult + ( vLineResult - vPlannedORPct ) * vDTMinutesPct
)
``````
