Hi @AnithaM 

“Can’t determine relationships” is one of the most basic errors in Power BI.

Most of the time this error means that a visual has two columns from different tables with no relationship between them.

But, it can also happen when using bi-directional filtering on relationships. The tables are related, but Power BI can’t figure out how to manage the cross-filtering.

For more information please refer :

Hi Ritaf1983,

                         Thank you for your response. In my case iam trying to pull the data from 2 fact tables which have a relationship with dimension table as shown



 the relationship between the tables is 1 to many and not bidirectional.

i want the columns from both fact tables.could you pleease advise on this.




@Ritaf1983 Thanks for your contribution on this thread.

Hi @AnithaM ,

The error message indicate that you'e trying to use two or more fields from tables that aren't related(like the table 'FACT SALES' and 'FACT xxx'). You need to remove the unrelated fields from the visual and then create a relationship between the tables. Once you create the relationship, you can add the fields back to the visual. 

Can't display the data because Power BI can't determine the relationship between two or more fields.

If the above ones can't help you figure out, please provide some raw data in your tables (exclude sensitive data) with Text format and your expected result with backend logic and special examples. It would be helpful to find out the solution. You can refer the following link to share the required info:

How to provide sample data in the Power BI Forum


And it is better if you can share a simplified pbix file. You can refer the following link to upload the file to the community. Thank you.
