Date / Lookup Tables

Morning dear Power BI users!

 

I am working on the data for car rentals. The cars leave from a station and parks in a station.

In my main query, I have the StationFrom column, the StationTo, and the number of rentals.

 

StationFromStationToRentals
AA4
AB5
AC1
BA4
BB5
BC9
CA3
CB2
CC7

 

I also have a lookup table that gives me more information on the location of the station.

 

StationLatLongCity
A5505Hogwart
B50555The Shire
C1400469Whiterun

 

However, it does not seem like I can link both the StationFrom and StationTo columns to my Location table (to Station column).

 

Do you guys know if I can link one column of a Lookup Table to 2 different colums of my main query ? Or should I just copy paste my Lookup table and use two of them?

 

Thank you very much !

Re: Date / Lookup Tables

Hi Valentin,

 

Always happy to help a Skyrim fan!

 

You can create a relationship to both, but only one will be active. But then in your calculations you can use the USERELATIONSHIP function to reference the inactive relationship instead. For example:

 

No. Rentals = CALCULATE(SUM(Table[Rentals]), USERELATIONSHIP(LookupTable[Station], Table[StationFrom]))

 

Otherwise, there is a LOOKUPVALUE function that may be of use.

 

Hope that helps!
