Lookupvalue from another table not related

Hi,

 

I'm trying to create a calculated column and this formula worked before but doesnt now. Maybe it was an update or a wrong formula from the beginning.

 

I want to pull in the location of the budget for a given [Tech]. These locations can change over different months and I want the fact table to track along with the Budget table. These two tables are fact tables and only have a many to many relationship connection with the Dates table. Can someone help with this code? 

 

I am getting an error "A Table of multiple values was supplied where a singe value was expected."

 

Thanks!

 

Budget Location = LOOKUPVALUE('Budget'[Location Code],
'Budget'[Tech ID],
'Clock'[Tech ID],
'Budget'[Date],
'Clock'[Start Date])

Hi @TrevorBoat 

 

The <Search Value> for LOOKUPVALUE needs to be a single value, you're supplying an entire column.

 

LOOKUPVALUE – DAX Guide

 

In you're case you are using 2 <Search Values> in the 3rd and 5th arguments.

 

If you can supply some sample data and what your expected result would be, I can see if I can assist further.

 

Regards

 

Phil
