Calculate the difference between 2 columns in 2 separate tables

Hi there.

 

The screen below shows 2 matrix (from 2 different tables).  I would like to create a 3rd matrix (in the same format as the 1st 2 matrix) whereby I can show for each financial year, the difference between the approved amount and the committed amount.

 

Any suggestio would be much appreciated.

 

Thanks.

Step 2:
Add a measure: 
Measure =
CALCULATE (
    SUMX (
        Table1,
        Table1[Qty]
            - CALCULATE (
                SUMX ( RELATEDTABLE ( Table2 ), Table2[Qty] ),
                FILTER ( Table2, Table2[ComFS] = Table1[FundingSource] )
            )
    )
)
Step 3:
