Changing column names

Hi

 

I'm trying to run the following code but DAX complains that both tables have the same column names, named "Value".

 

I tried to rename the column in one of the tables with the SELECTCOLUMNS command but it could not "recognise" the table column and produces an error.

 

what's the catch? is there another way of producing a table with N columns in a single command?

thanks in advance

Re: Changing column names

I got the answer from stackoverflow.  I had an alternative with addcolumns but this is much simpler.

 

Table x = VAR _numberTab = SELECTCOLUMNS ( GENERATESERIES ( 1, 60 ), "number", [Value] )              
          VAR _valuesTab = GENERATESERIES(CURRENCY(100), CURRENCY(100))
RETURN 
      CROSSJOIN(_numberTab,  _valuesTab)
