When value is present in column, find matching value on another row and supply another column value

Hello,

 

I'm attempting to make a DAX that uses the member_id in the reports_to column, to lookup the title for that member ID so I can make a dynamic grouping based on Title of the member_id that people report to.

 

member_idReports_ToTitle

This is just a small sample from the dataset, please let me know if I can help with any additional details.

 

Thanks,

Seth

That gave me the same result for all rows. I figured it out with LOOKUPVALUE, I had one of the columns in the wrong place, when switched it properly had a single value and returned what I was looking for.

 
Column = LOOKUPVALUE(v_rpt_Member[Title],v_rpt_Member[Member_ID],v_rpt_Member[Reports_To])

 

Thanks for the original answer and help with this!

I tried the below, but getting "a table of multiple values was supplied where a single value was expected"

 

LOOKUPVALUE(v_rpt_Member[Title],v_rpt_Member[Reports_To],v_rpt_Member[Member_ID])
 
I'm trying to create a new column that basically has the "Title of reports to" or the title of the person they report to. My dataset has 492 rows with numerous different reports_to values, so that initial table is a small snippet. 
 
This is the result I would like to see (red text is new column that does not yet exist), and have it dynamically lookup the Title so that when folks change roles it uses the new reports_to member_id to lookup title.

Hope that helps clarify what I'm trying to accomplish. Thanks for your help.

 

 

Hmm, maybe:

 

Column = 
  MAXX(FILTER('Table',[member_id] = [Reports_To]),[Title])

Sorry, guess I should have actually tested that code! :S
