Help with M code + Vlookup

Hello!

 

I am creating a complex database that will have import info from Share point list and connect to Data Lake databases.

 

I have no experience/knowledge with  M code but I would like to use it instead of DAX because its possible to filter the rows in the query mode that will improve a lot the speed/size of this power bi file since I will use a lot of large databases.

 

I will make also easier when I will use the same table mirror for this table for other filtering conditions for the same table.

 

Table A

ECODICE MECO
686638596517
686638596517
686638612180
686638621342

 

Table B

 

FA Proj. IDProj. ref. typeProj. ref. DICE MECO(s) / ECO(s)
22DICE MECO596517
23DICE MECO643711
24DICE MECO660949
25DICE MECO685692
26DICE MECO695569
27DICE MECO704182
28ECO686638
30DICE MECO668426
31DICE MECO612180
31DICE MECO621342
33DICE MECO685694

 

I would like to add the column "FA Proj. ID" in the table A based on the values for column B with 2 variants, when is ECO in the Proj. ref. type should look in the 1st column in the table A  or when its DICE MECO in the Proj. ref. type for the 2nd column for the table A when is a match with the values for the column DICE MECO(s) / ECO(s) from the table B.

 

I tried to search similar cases but I didn´t find it.

 

Hope that I can get help with that!

 

Best regards,

Hi, @André_Fortunato 

 

Sorry for the late reply because of the weekend. You can try the custom column in PQ. Sample file is below.

Like this:

let 
t1=Table.SelectRows(#"TableB",(x)=>x[DICE_MECO ECO]=[ECO]),
t2= Table.SelectRows(#"TableB",(x)=>x[DICE_MECO ECO]=[DICE MECO]) 
in 
if Table.RowCount(t1)>0
then List.Sum(t1[FA Proj. ID])
else if Table.RowCount(t2)>0
then List.Sum(t2[FA Proj. ID])
else null

Hi, @André_Fortunato 

 

In this case, do you want 22 or 28? Can you show me the desired result?

Hello @v-janeyg-msft !

 

Thanks a lot for your reply and support!

 

My apologies for that, I added wrong values in the ECO column. See below the desired result:

Hi @v-janeyg-msft !

I tested the code and works great.

I just have a new issue that takes much more time to load the table A from a OBDC data source but I can load this table by a routine.

Many thanks once again and have a great weekend,

Regards, André

Hi @v-janeyg-msft ,

 

No worries, I am in summer holidays from last Monday but I will be able to test the proposed solution only in the middle/end of the next week.


Thanks a lot once again for your help!

 

Best regards, André

Hi, @André_Fortunato 

 

I need a complete logic, If the two columns of a row in table A can match the id in table B, how to deal with it, is there such a situation? Please explain.

 

Best Regards

Janey Guo

Hi @v-janeyg-msft !


The filter ut will be always the table B, if column Proj. type ref. is a ECO they should vlookup the value from the DICE MECO(s) / ECO(s) in the column ECO from table A and add a new column with the FA. Proj. iD in the table A from the table B, the same logic if the value from the column Proj. type ref. From table B is a DICE MECO but should vlookup the values from the table A from the column DICE MECO instead.

it will be always distinct values for ECO or MECO in the table A or B but I am only interested to retrieve in the table A the DICE MECO / ECOs from table B and tag the Proj ID in the table A.

 

Please let me know if you need more input 🙂

 

Best regards,

@André_Fortunato  I understand and I will reply to you later.
