Merge two tables while summing values from subtable

Hello, I have two tables

 

Table A is the Payment Table

Payment IDPayment AmountPayment Date
1101/1/17
2101/2/17
3101/3/17
4101/4/17
5101/5/17
6101/6/17

 

 

Table B is the Refund Table

Refund IDPayment IDRefund AmountRefund Date
a151/1/17
b151/2/17
c231/3/17
d231/4/17
e231/5/17
f321/6/17

 

I would like to merge them together to get Table C which is the Payment Table (Table A) with the total refunds for each payment from the Refund Table (Table B) summed up into the new Refund Amount column 

 

Table C - Required Result

Payment IDPayment AmountPayment DateRefund Amount
1101/1/1710
2101/2/179
3101/3/172
4101/4/170
5101/5/170
6101/6/170

 

Currently when I merge these I get the following which is wrong as it creates multiple payment ID rows for each refund amount. 

Payment IDPayment AmountPayment DateRefund Amount
1101/1/175
1101/1/175
1101/1/173
2101/2/173
2101/2/173
3101/3/172
4101/4/170
5101/5/170
6101/6/170

 

Thank you in advance for your help.

Re: Merge two tables while summing values from subtable

Hi @jeffs9876,

 

According to your description above, adding a calculate column in Payment Table should be a better choice than merging the two tables in your scenario. Smiley Happy

 

1. Create a relationships between the Payment table and Refund table with the Payment ID column if there isn't yet.

2. Then you should be able to use the formula below to add a new calculate column in Payment table to get the total refunds for each payment from the Refund Table.

Refund Amount = CALCULATE(SUM(Refund[Refund Amount])) + 0
