## How to incorporate two columns from different unrelated tables into VALUES for SUMX of a measure?

Hi,

I am using a formula to create the SUM of a measure:
Total Underutilisation = IF(HASONEVALUE([name]), [Measure], SUMX(VALUES([name]), [Measure]))

I actually have two fields filtering the calculated Underutilisation, the name as well as the account.

These two columns are from two different and unrelated tables.

I was told I could use SUMMARIZE in the formula below:

=IF(HASONEVALUE([name]), [Measure], SUMX(SUMMARIZE([Table], [Column1], [Column2], "Custom"), [Custom]))

But my problem is that both the columns are from two different and unrelated tables, so I cannot use the ADDCOLUMNS and RELATED formulas either:

=IF(HASONEVALUE([name]), [Measure], SUMX(SUMMARIZE(ADDCOLUMNS([Table], "Custom", RELATED(Table2[Column2])), Table[Column], [Custom])))

Have you already tried something like below?

NewMeasure =
IF (
HASONEVALUE ( Table[Name] ),
SUMX (
CROSSJOIN ( VALUES ( Table1[Column1] )VALUES ( Table2[Column2] ) ),
[Measure]
)
)

You could also consider using TREATAS() to pass in a filter from the second table.

Without having relationships, and you need to create measure that shows corresponding result to the unrelated tables, you can try to use TREATAS function.

In this case, because there are two unrelated tables, I used two times of TREATAS in the measure.

you can find the link below that is the sample pbix file.

Value Total With TREATAS =
CALCULATE (
SUMX ( 'Table', 'Table'[Value] ),
TREATAS ( VALUES ( Names[Name] ), 'Table'[Name] ),
TREATAS ( VALUES ( Accounts[Account] ), 'Table'[Account] )
)

Thank you, the CROSSJOIN worked perfectly for me!
