Creating column with data from visualization made

Hi! I am a fairly new user to PowerBi and I have been struggling to understand how to calculate data in a table, specifically how toadd a new column to a visualization table that I made with filters and specific data chosen. What I mean by this is that I made a table where i filtered by specific rows and dates and now with the information shown in the visualization i want to be able to create a calculation, but only with the information shown!

 

I would also like to know if i can do a "VLOOKUP" in PowerBi!

 

Thank you very much!

Hi @macarenadiaz8 ,

You can create measures like this, set its value as 1 and put it in the visual filter to do the calculation and filter data in the visual:

Measure = 
IF (
    SUM ( 'Table 1'[Value] ) >= 15
        && MAX ( 'Table 1'[Column] ) <> BLANK (),
    1,
    0
)

In addtion, in power bi, you can use Lookupvalue() function to replace Vlookup():

Column = LOOKUPVALUE('Table 2'[Category],'Table 2'[ID],'Table 1'[ID])

You can refer this article: DAX In Power BI - How To Use LOOKUPVALUE() Function
