Measure to compare text strings

I have two tables joined on Doc_no

 

Table 1

Doc_no

Description

Serial_Number  (text string)

 

Table 2

Doc_no

Description

PN_Serial_Number  (text string)

I want to find out when Table 1 Serial_Number does not match Table 2 PN_Serial_number. I assume I need to create a measure with an IF statement, Y if they match and N if they don't; put that measure in the "Filters" section to do the filter.  I just can't make the measure work.

Re: Measure to compare text strings

Hi @Usates,

 

A measure can't be used in Visual/Page/Report level filters pane, only columns can be placed.

 

In your scenario, assume the relationship between the Table1 and Table2 is 1:n, you can create a calculated column in Table2 like below below:

 

Condition = IF('Table2'[PN_Serial_Number]=RELATED(Table1[Serial_Number]),"Y","N")

 

Then drag this column to the Visual Level Filters pane, select "N" value.
