Looking up value from related table matching 2 columns

Evening,

 

I'm trying to add a value from a related table based on 2 columns values.

 

First Table (where I need the new column populated with coloured answer)

Unique CompanyRating 1Rating 2Rating 3Overall 
A(rating)(rating)(rating)(rating) 
B(rating)(rating)(rating)(rating) 

 

Related Table

Unique CompanyCategoryRating
ARating 1Good
ARating 2Satisfactory
ARating 3Very Good
AOverallGood
BRating 1Satisfactory
BRating 2Adequate
BRating 3Good
BOverallSatisfactory

 

I have tried using IF, Lookup and Switch but cannot get it quite right due to the multiple rows returning a result and breaking the query.

 

Any help appreciated

Hi, @herbs 

 

You can try the following methods.

Column:

Rating 1 = 
CALCULATE(MAX('Table 1'[Rating]),FILTER('Table 1',[Unique Company]=EARLIER('Table 2'[Unique Company])&&[Category]="Rating 1"))
Rating 2 = 
CALCULATE(MAX('Table 1'[Rating]),FILTER('Table 1',[Unique Company]=EARLIER('Table 2'[Unique Company])&&[Category]="Rating 2"))
Rating 3 = 
CALCULATE(MAX('Table 1'[Rating]),FILTER('Table 1',[Unique Company]=EARLIER('Table 2'[Unique Company])&&[Category]="Rating 3"))
Overall = 
CALCULATE(MAX('Table 1'[Rating]),FILTER('Table 1',[Unique Company]=EARLIER('Table 2'[Unique Company])&&[Category]="Overall"))

Measure:

Color 1 = 
IF(SELECTEDVALUE('Table 2'[Rating 1])="Good","Blue",IF(SELECTEDVALUE('Table 2'[Rating 1])="Satisfactory","Magenta"))
Color 2 = 
IF(SELECTEDVALUE('Table 2'[Rating 2])="Satisfactory","Purple",IF(SELECTEDVALUE('Table 2'[Rating 2])="Adequate","Brown"))
Color 3 = 
IF(SELECTEDVALUE('Table 2'[Rating 3])="Very Good","Green",IF(SELECTEDVALUE('Table 2'[Rating 3])="Good","Red"))
Color 4 = 
IF(SELECTEDVALUE('Table 2'[Overall])="Good","Orange",IF(SELECTEDVALUE('Table 2'[Overall])="Satisfactory","Black"))

Is this the result you expect?

Hello

 

Unfortunately it doesn't work which i think is due to the table it is going into rather than the formula itself (creating a circular reference)

 

To help:

 

Table "Existing" as it looks currently

Unique Company  
A  
B  

 

Table "Ratings" as it looks currrently

Unique CompanyCategoryRating
ACareGood
ATeamOutstanding
AHappyGood
BCareAdequate
BTeamAdequate
BHappyPoor
CCareOutstanding
CTeamOutstanding
CHappyGood

 

I need table "Existing" to look like

Uniqueness CompanyCareTeamHappy
AGoodOutstandingGood
BAdequate Adequate Poor
COutstanding Outstanding Good

 

Thanks again for your help so far

Hi,

I am not sure if I understood your question correctly, but please check the below picture and the attached pbix file.

It is for creating a new table.

New Table = 
ADDCOLUMNS (
    VALUES ( Data[Unique Company] ),
    "@Rating 1",
        CALCULATE (
            MAXX ( FILTER ( Data, Data[Category] = "Rating 1" ), Data[Rating] )
        ),
    "@Rating 2",
        CALCULATE (
            MAXX ( FILTER ( Data, Data[Category] = "Rating 2" ), Data[Rating] )
        ),
    "@Rating 3",
        CALCULATE (
            MAXX ( FILTER ( Data, Data[Category] = "Rating 3" ), Data[Rating] )
        ),
    "@Overall", CALCULATE ( MAXX ( FILTER ( Data, Data[Category] = "Overall" ), Data[Rating] ) )
)
