Comparing Values from one table to all values in a different table

Hello,

 

Here is a sample table I have built.  What I have is a two tables with addresses.  I need to compare addresses from table 1 to all the addresses in table 2.  There are no common columns to join tables on.  How do I get my data to appear like the picture below?

 

Thank you,

Mark

 

Table 1 Table 2 Combined
Coordinate 1 Coordinate A Coordinate 1 compared to Coordinate A
Coordinate 2 Coordinate B Coordinate 1 compared to Coordinate B
Coordinate 3 Coordinate C Coordinate 1 compared to Coordinate C
    Coordinate 2 compared to Coordinate A
    Coordinate 2 compared to Coordinate B
    Coordinate 2 compared to Coordinate C
    Coordinate 3 compared to Coordinate A
    Coordinate 3 compared to Coordinate B
    Coordinate 3 compared to Coordinate C

Re: Comparing Values from one table to all values in a different table

Try the Dax function CrossJoin

 

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/dax/crossjoin-function-dax

 

Add a Table using crossjoin

CrossJoin = (CROSSJOIN('Table 1','Table 2'))

You can they add a calculated column to check the values. This can be used to filter just the matches

Check = IF('CrossJoin'[Address1Data]='CrossJoin'[Address2Data], "Match", "No Match")

Thank you for the quick reply.  This appears to be exactly what I am looking for.  I will give this a try when I get into the office tomrrow.

Re: Comparing Values from one table to all values in a different table

You can bring data from one table to another like the example given below

New column in Table 1 = maxx(filter(table2,table1[customer] = table2[customer] && table2[option]="ABC",table2[value])

New column in Table 1 = maxx(filter(table2,table1[Attribute] = table2[name] && table1[project] = table2[project]),table2[name])

 

You can refer to how I have taken date diff across two tables in 4 ways.

Can you share sample data and sample output? If possible please share a sample pbix file after removing sensitive information. Thanks.
