A circular dependency was detected

I have this error message that I'm not quite understanding:

1.PNG

 

I have an inactive relationship between this table and a date table:

The column it's complaining about is a calculated column that is simply this:

1.PNG

Which I've used in this formula:

I'm attempting to do things this way because establishing a direct relationship between these two tables is throwing off other calcuations and formulas I have built through other tables that it is connected to. How can I fix this?

Re: A circular dependency was detected

Hi @mrainey,

 

Do you have this error by creating calculated colum? Why not try with measure? 

 

If you do have the error with creating a calculated colum, you could have a reference of this similar thread which has been solved.

 

If you still need help, please share a dummy pbix file which can reproduce the scenario, so that we can help further investigate on it? You can upload it to OneDrive or Dropbox and post the link here. Do mask sensitive data before uploading.)
