## 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 Date ID X1 X2 X3 X4 Tool Date ID Tool 7/29/2019 12345 1.2 1.4 1.2 1.1 AA 7/30/2019 12345 AA 7/29/2019 23456 2.0 1.1 1.2 1.5 BB 7/30/2019 23456 BB 7/29/2019 23456 2.8 0.8 1.2 1.9 BB 7/29/2019 53451 3.6 0.5 1.2 2.3 BB 7/30/2019 53451 BB 7/28/2019 34567 4.4 0.2 1.2 2.7 AA 7/29/2019 34567 AA 7/27/2019 23456 2.8 0.8 1.2 1.9 AA 7/27/2019 23456 AA

Hi @EZiamslow

Sorry, I've missed that.

You can do it in Query Editor by adding a custom column to the Table1.

`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.

Let me know if you need any extra help.

Hi @vivran22

I've tried to look at your solution, but could not find anything in the file, just row tables.
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!
