Match 2 columns from 2 different tables - based on the date and pull the value

Hi,

I'm having trouble matching between two different tables. I'm trying to match between [Date] and [ID] columns from Table1 to Table2 and pull table2[Tool] value. Table2[Date] is equal or 1 day higher than Table1[Date].

 

Please see the sample data below. I'm not sure what I can do to make it work. Table1[tool] is the one I'm trying to get.

 

Any inputs will be greatly appreciated.

 

Table1     (from table2) Table2  
DateIDX1X2X3X4Tool  DateIDTool
7/29/2019123451.21.41.21.1AA 7/30/201912345AA
7/29/2019234562.01.11.21.5BB 7/30/201923456BB
7/29/2019234562.80.81.21.9BB    
7/29/2019534513.60.51.22.3BB 7/30/201953451BB
7/28/2019345674.40.21.22.7AA 7/29/201934567AA
7/27/2019234562.80.81.21.9AA 7/27/201923456AA

Hi @EZiamslow

Sorry, I've missed that.

 

You can do it in Query Editor by adding a custom column to the Table1.
Please see the below M code for your column.

let _id = [ID], _date = [Date] in Table.FirstN( Table.Sort( Table.SelectRows( Table2, each [ID] = _id and [Date] >= _date ), { { "Date", Order.Ascending } } ), 1 )[Tool]

Next you will need to expand the list of values.

please see the outcome below.

Let me know if you need any extra help.

Hi @vivran22

Can you republish the file?

ps. thanks for the kudos!

Hi,

 

I have checked the link and it is working fine. I am not sure what you are seeing when you are accessing the file. I have suggested the solution using DAX (LookupValue). Below is the screenshot:

@vivran22  Thanks your DAX code works.

@Mariusz  I haven't tried yours yet. I will try it and get back to you. I'm still learning. It's good to know that we have multiple ways of doing things. Thank you!
