Not applicable

calculated column

Good afternoon!


Could someone guide me in here: there are 2 tables 

1st table A has a column named P_type where one of the valus named  "Maintenance&Support" is needed to be chosen as filter

2st table B has a column named Gate where value is needed to be added as name "no needed"


"If P_Type (table A) = Maintenance & Support (table a)-> It will show new name “not needed”( table B,column Gate)"powerbi pic ....PNG

Hi @Anonymous 


It's not clear. Can you provide some sample data and explain it in more details. 


Do you have two table visuals in the report and want to click on one column "P_Type" in table A to filter the result in table B visual? If so, you need to use a measure rather than a calculated column. Put this measure into the second table visual.

New name =
IF (
    SELECTEDVALUE ( 'table A'[P_Type] ) = "Maintenance & Support",
    "No needed",
    "other name"


If above measure doesn't work, please provide some sample data and expected result to help us understand it better.

Please provide sanitized sample data that fully covers your issue. If you paste the data into a table in your post or use one of the file services it will be easier to work with. Avoid posting screenshots of your source data if possible.

Please show the expected outcome based on the sample data you provided. Screenshots of the expected outcome are ok.
