## Write a Measure with Relation

Hello,

I was looking in the Forum and I searched a lot in the internet.

I am looking for a Measure, where I can tell a Relation.

For example: I earn a sum X for an order. I pay X€ for the delievery. How much income do I have per 1 € delievery costs?

I try to make a report, where I need to use a lot of such measures. The absolut numbers are not that meaningful. The important things are the relation numbers.

Unfortunatly, everytime I google "Power Bi" and "Relation" I always get infos about the Relations in the Model (which makes sense, but is not what I need :D)

Thanks in advance. 🙂

Hello @amitchandak,

thanks, I try to define it a little more 🙂

Values & Measures for order values:

 RG DB Real ohne GS S. = SUM(Prdo5_Sales[RG DB Real ohne GS])

Values & Measures for delivery costs:

 UPS Fracht_Netto = sum('UPS Invoice'[FRT Net charge])

I don't understand what you mean with Order ID. Do you mean something like an invoice number or is this a expression I don't know yet?

I tried your formular as followed:

 DB€ auf 1€ Fracht = SUMX(VALUES('UPS Invoice'[FRT Net charge], 'UPS Invoice'[UPS Nettobetrag], [UPS Fracht_Netto] - [RG DB Real ohne GS S.]))

I get the following error:

Too many arguments were passed to the Values function. A maximum of 1 argument is allowed for the function.

Thanks again in Advance 🙂

@Laura0403 , values parenthesis ")" is not closing before comma

@Laura0403 , There is something known as related that can help copy data from 1side to many side table.

Else you need a common, order table measure like order value and delivery value .

Final measure =

sumx(values(OrderIS[Order ID]), [Order value]- [Delivery Value]) )

both order and delivery are joined to a common orderid table

If this does not help
Can you share sample data and sample output in table format? Or a sample pbix after removing sensitive data.
