LOOKUPVALUE formula in Column returning NIL/Blank Values

Hi,

 

I have a DAX calendar table called DAILY TARGETS and I've added a column to calculate a daily target, using values fro my BUDGET Table as follows:

 

Daily Target = divide(LOOKUPVALUE(Budget[Revenue (Budget)],Budget[Month and Year],'Daily Targets'[Month and Year]),LOOKUPVALUE(Budget[DAYS IN MONTH],Budget[Month and Year],'Daily Targets'[Month and Year]))
 
The formula is returning blank values for some of the rows, and I cannot understand why?
Is there something missing from my formula?
 
Below is a link to my Pbix file.
 
 
Any help would be appreciated!

Re: LOOKUPVALUE formula in Column returning NIL/Blank Values

Hi @droupa,

 

You can change the relationships between tables like picture below, which will make these tables treated as if they're a single table and simplified the data model after converting the Cross filter direction from Single to Both . Then , there won't have blank value for the column Daily Target.
