Hi  @ash_cool10 ,

Refer the below:

``sumtablea = CALCULATE(SUM(TableA[value]),ALLEXCEPT(TableA,TableA[Product]))``

``sunmtableb = calculate(SUM(TableB[value]),ALLEXCEPT(TableB,TableB[Product]))``

Relationship:

Difference:

``Difference = [sumtablea]-LOOKUPVALUE(TableB[sunmtableb],TableB[Product],MAX(TableA[Product]))``

Outputresult:

@ash_cool10 use the same process that you do to create a calculated column and a measure

1. first create a calculated columns

2. create your first measure

3. then create your measure to calc difference between 1. calculated column 2. measure

in case you face any challenge, please sample data to create above calc

Hi @negi007,

I tried creating the same but nothing is working out.

It gives error "a table of multiple values was supplied where a single value was expected" when i used Lookup value fucntion to call Calculated COlumn value inn Table 1.

Can you please elaborate some more?

Thanks.

@ash_cool10  why do you need to use lookup function. both tables are already linked to each other through relationship you have created as mentioned by you.

let say you first create a calculated column like

1. Profit_Est = Orders[Profit]*1.5

then you create a measure in the second table like below
2. Returns = sum(Returns[value])

then you create a measure like below
Profit_Returns = SUM(Orders[Profit_Est])-[Returns]

i hope it can direct you in the right direction. for exact help would it be possible for you to share your pbix file or data in text format. thanks
