Dax formula

Dear all,

I have some trouble with DAX measures and I don't know how to solve it. This is my data model:

I'm trying to make several measures, but I can't get them correct, because of the different dimension tables.
These are the measures:

  • Sums cost per truck per period
  • Counts number of routes per truck per period
  • Cost per truck per period devided by number of routes per period

  • Sums cost per trailer per period
  • Counts number of routes per trailer per period
  • Cost per trailer per period devided by number of routes per period


I tried to get it fixed with USERELATIONSHIP to define which relationship the measure should use. But this does not work.  

Measure = CALCULATE(SUM(tbl_Cost[Cost]); USERELATIONSHIP(tbl_Cost[Costkey];tbl_Trucks[Costkey]))

Can someone please help me?

To clarify I made a demo file which you can find here:

Many thanks in advance.

Re: Dax formula



You may try using LOOKUPVALUE Function to add calculated columns first.

Re: Dax formula

Hi @v-chuncz-msft,

Thanks for your reply!

Do you mean:
So instead of making a measure, make calculated columns in tbl_route with LOOKUPVALUE?
