A single value for column 'id' in table 'SheetsAll' cannot be determined.

Hi All,

 

The following looup is used to work fine previously but suddenly stopped . Can someone let me know what could be the poosible issue and provide an alternates solution

 

Billable=LOOKUPVALUE(Job[ISbillable],Job[id],SheetsAll[id])

 

 

A single value for column 'id' in table 'SheetsAll' cannot be determined. This can happen when a measure formula refers to a column that contains many values without specifying an aggregation such as min, max, count, or sum to get a single result.

There was a null value in the underlying tables which caused the issue.

Re: A single value for column 'id' in table 'SheetsAll' cannot be determined.

Hi @ganesh_simhadri,

 

Is the data in table 'Job' and 'SheetsAll' updated? As the error prompted, please check whether column 'id' in table 'SheetsAll' can be uniquely determined. Please see below examples

Job table

id ISbillable

A  Yes

A  No

B  No

C  Yes

 

SheetsAll table

id

A

B

C

 

In above scenario, we cannot determine which value of [ISbillable] should be returned for id "A" in 'SheetsAll'. As in Job table, there are two different records are matched with id "A".

 

Best regards,
