## "LOOKUP" as on Excel ???

Hello everyone,
i wish to use a formula, as on Excel, that does "LOOKUP" (not lookupvalue).
my need is to determine whether x is between 2 specific numbers and return the value in the RESULT column that refers to it.

for example: if x=5 return 10
if x=130 return 150 etc.

my lookup table:

Following is the sample lookup table I have created:

and this is what you can get using the DAX calculated column:

There is no relationship between these two tables and the values are not unique

In your given case - the values were unique dates, and probabely it has a relationship in the model.
In my case, the values may repeat themselves and no relationship can be made.

thanks again,

Thanks to your solution i managed to get the desired result, but i still have on issue regarding the SUM of these values in a matrix.
it does not show the correct sum of the per row measures.

i think it is something to do with "IF(HASONEFILTER(.....))" but i can not generate the SUM condition that will show me correct result.

This is not helpful in understanding the issue.

Can you create a excel file with sample values of table Loading and Rounding Rules, along with the expected output?

i think the issue is that it is taking the sum (which i expect) and goes to lookup table and tries to find a result within the range.

i want the sum to just sum regularly the values underneath.

perfect! thanks!
i was just miswriting your command.

thanks again!
