calculate the Size value from from Dimension table for the corresponding products in FactSales table

Hi Guys

 

Hope somebody can help me with this task.

 

I have two Tables, table A (FactTable) & table B (dimensionTable). Both of the has the ProductID Column, but i'm trying to get the corresponding Product Size values from table B into a new column in table A that matches the ProductID. I've tried to merge etc. and it didn't work.

 

The result i'm looking for is that in table A, for every product sale there's a column that shows the product size of that product.

Table A

ProductIDProductUnitSales

1

2 x

25 x
310 x

 

Table B

ProductIDProductSize
120 kg
230 kg
340 kg

 

Result i wish to see is:

Table A

ProductIDProductUnitSalesSalesVolume
33 x3 x 20 kg = 60 kg

How and what is the best way to tackle this task?

Hi @MacJasem ,

Are the data types of [ProductUnitSales], [ProductSize], [SalesVolume] numbers or text? If I understand correctly, do you want to get the summary value from table B corresponding to [ProductSize] and create a new column in table A by multiplying this value with [ProductUnitSales]?

 

If so, please try:

 

let
    Source = Table.NestedJoin(#"Table A", {"ProductID"}, #"Table B", {"ProductID"}, "Table B", JoinKind.LeftOuter),
    #"Expanded Table B" = Table.ExpandTableColumn(Source, "Table B", {"ProductSize"}, {"Table B.ProductSize"}),
    #"Added Custom" = Table.AddColumn(#"Expanded Table B", "SalesVolume", each [ProductUnitSales] * [Table B.ProductSize]),
    #"Grouped Rows" = Table.Group(#"Added Custom", {"ProductID", "ProductUnitSales"}, {{"SalesVolume", each List.Sum([SalesVolume]), type number}})
in
    #"Grouped Rows"
