Link from one table to many

I have a main table called Overview extracted from a project management software in which i have the following column



First Name

Last Name

Hours logged


For each project, I have a Rate table with the following column

First Name

Last Name



I want to extract the cost of each project by multiplying the rate x hours logged. 


How can I have my main table have one RATE column that populates based on the project specific rate?


Thank you,

@amitchandak that work. What if I have multiple projects (so multiple Table 2), can I use an OR condition?

Assuming there is a Project column in Table2 as well, write this calculated column formula in Table1

Rate = calculate(sum(Table2[Rate]),filter(table2,table2[Project]=earlier(table1[Project])&&table2[First name]=earlier(table1[first name])&&table2[Last name]=earlier(table1[last name])))

Hope this helps.

@plmiquelon , A new column in Table 1


MAxx(filter(Table2, Table2[First Name] = table1[First Name] && Table2[Last Name] = Table1[Last name]) , Table2[Rate])


This will rate in Table1 as column, which you can multiply
