lookupvalue error

I wonder if anyone could help, really struggling on it..... 

 

ProfitAllocationRaw = IF(IF(Gates[Salesperson]="Sales Person 1",[S1Year]-Gates[QGate],[S2Year]-Gates[QGate])<0,0,IF(Gates[Salesperson]="Sales Person 1",[S1Year]-Gates[QGate]-(LOOKUPVALUE(Gates[QGate],Gates[GateNumber],Gates[GateNumber]-1)),[S2Year]-Gates[QGate]-(LOOKUPVALUE(Gates[QGate],Gates[GateNumber],Gates[GateNumber]-1))))

 

I am getting “A table of multiple values was supplied where a single value was expected.”, i am thinking it is an issue with the highlighted comma.  Any thoughts?

Hi @tmears  - 

 

There may be mulitple spots with issues in this code. Presuming that [ ] indicates measure and Table[ ] indicated column, everywhere that you have a measure minus a column will fail. You will need to do some kind of aggregation on the column (SUM, MIN, MAX, SELECTEDVALUE, RELATED, etc) to get a single value to subtract from the measure. Same with the third parameter in your LOOKUPVALUE clauses.

 

If you need more assistance, please share your pbix with sensitive data removed so we can see what the model and the data look like.

 

Hope this helps

Hi @tmears 

Could you tell me if your problem has been solved? If it is, kindly Accept the helpful reply as the solution. More people will benefit from it. Or you are still confused about it, here I will gvie you some advice.

In addition to , the problem may be caused by lookupvalue function.

Your measure:

 

ProfitAllocationRaw =
IF (
    IF (
        Gates[Salesperson] = "Sales Person 1",
        [S1Year] - Gates[QGate],
        [S2Year] - Gates[QGate]
    ) < 0,
    0,
    IF (
        Gates[Salesperson] = "Sales Person 1",
        [S1Year] - Gates[QGate]
            - ( LOOKUPVALUE ( Gates[QGate], Gates[GateNumber], Gates[GateNumber] - 1 ) ),
        [S2Year] - Gates[QGate]
            - ( LOOKUPVALUE ( Gates[QGate], Gates[GateNumber], Gates[GateNumber] - 1 ) )
    )
)

 

In your false result, due to the lookupvalue, it may return to multiple values where Gate[GateNumber] = Gates[GateNumber]-1, so it comes to an error. 

Could you tell me your calculate logic, show me the result you want and provide me a data model like what you are dealing with?

Or you can share your pbix file with me by your OneDirve for Business.
