Hi I am trying to subtract the cost from the revenue above for the two different tables on 1 visual but I am struggling. I tried using the KPI but i doesnt show the difference.

Relate the two tables on Person or you may need a Person bridge table with unique values and relate both tables to it. You should then be able to create a measure like:

`RevenueCost = [Revenue KPI] - SUM(RELATED(Table1[Cost]))`
