Matrix Not Populating, measure, relationship or data model error?

looking for help understanding if I have a DAX measuring challenge or data model problem.  Example: three tables: recipes (name, file_id, date), tags (below), recipe_tags (which tags applied to which files; multiples allowed). Need a crosstab presentation (i.e. Matrix visualization) with w/ category A elements as rows and category B elements as columns.  Thoughts?

 

file_tags layout:

tag_id    tag_name     category

1            Apple           Fruit

2            Banana         Fruit

3            Kiwi              Fruit

4            Mango         Fruit

5            Orange        Fruit

6             Breakfast      Meal

7            Brunch          Meal

8            Meal             Meal

9            Dinner           Meal

Hi @EdwardXAult,

 

Can you share a dummy file of your data? It's easy to create a Matrix visual. So we won't know what the issue be without data.

Re: Matrix Not Populating, measure, relationship or data model error?

let me know if this link doesn't work; here's a visual to clarify desired output...the complication i'm struggling with is that all tag information is in one "Tag" table w/ columns of id, name and category i.e. I'm try to "cross" one filtered version of a column with another fitlered version of the same column....which has confused me if it's a data model or measure syntax challenge.

Hi @EdwardXAult,

 

Seems you don't need a measure. Just drag the 'file_tags'[file_id] in the Values field. Because they are in the same table and there is a relationship. Is the below what you need?

Matrix_Not_Populating
