Create column where there is no relationship between 2 tables

I am new to Power BI.  I have 3 tables:  Table A, Table B, and Table C.  Table A and Table B both have a relationship with Table C but do not have a relationship with each other.  I am trying to figure out how to concatenate 2 fields (one from Table A and one from Table B).  

 

Any help would be appreciated.  Thanks!

Re: Create column where there is no relationship between 2 tables

Hi @kbebow ,

 

According to your description, I create sample data to test the scenario. You can create measure Concatenate in Table A to meet your demand.

 

Concatenate = MAX('Table A'[Text])&"-"&MAX('Table B'[Text])

 

If the Cross filter direction in the relationships which Table A and Table B have with Table C are both Single, return the result like picture below, which concatenate each row value from Table A and Table B.

While, if there are one or two Both for the Cross filter direction in the relationships which Table A and Table B have with Table C , return the result like picture below, which concatenate only matched row value from Table A and Table B.
