Hi @Rita12 ,

You could use Merge inside Power Query to fetch required value from Master Table,and you can use calculate function with filter function to instead:

Please check https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/power-bi/desktop-directquery-about 141 to find limitation of Direct Query.

One Limitations in calculated columns: Calculated columns are limited to being intra-row. So, Adding Column using Lookup from other table is not available.
