## Need help with match function for a calculated column

I am trying to build a calculated column using a formula that would say whether a performance measure met or did not meet the target value for a certain year. The logic is:

If( Actual Value >= Estimate Value, "Met Target", "Did Not Meet Target") .

The issues are, there are many performance measures, many years, and the Actual and Estimate values are in the SAME column. They are differentiated by another column that indicates the value type, "Actual" or "Estimate".

My Current Formula is:
Met or Did Not Meet =

IF( 'Table'[Performance Measure] = 'Table'[Performance Measure] && 'Table'[Year] = 'Table'[Year],
IF( LOOKUPVALUE( 'Table'[Value], 'Table'[Value Type], "Actual") >=  LOOKUPVALUE( 'Table'[Value], 'Table'[Value Type], "Estimate"),
"Met", "Did Not Meet")
)

Error Received = A table of multiple calues was supplied where a single value was expected.

What should my dax formula say?

Column Headers are: Year, Performance Measure, Value, Value Type (Actual or Estimate).

An Example of some data is:

Table

Year | Performance Measure | Value |  Value Type || "Met Target or Did Not Meet Target"

2016| Average Credit            | 1171   | Estimate

2016| Average Credit            | 1250   | Actual

2016| Number of Customers|   800   | Estimate

2016| Number of Customers|   745   | Actual

2017| Average Credit            | 1200   | Estimate

2017| Average Credit            | 1995   | Actual

2017| Number of Customers| 1000   | Estimate

2017| Number of Customers| 1300   | Actual

## Re: Need help with match function for a calculated column

Hi jjmd,

You could use measure like below to achieve your goal

```Measure 2 =
VAR Actual =
CALCULATE (
SUM ( 'Table (4)'[ Value ] ),
FILTER (
ALLEXCEPT (
'Table (4)',
'Table (4)'[Year ],
'Table (4)'[ Performance Measure ]
),
'Table (4)'[  Value Type ] = "Actual"
)
)
VAR Estimate =
CALCULATE (
SUM ( 'Table (4)'[ Value ] ),
FILTER (
ALLEXCEPT (
'Table (4)',
'Table (4)'[Year ],
'Table (4)'[ Performance Measure ]
),
'Table (4)'[  Value Type ] = "Estimate"
)
)
RETURN
IF ( Actual - Estimate > 0, "Met", "Did Not Meet" )
``` Best Regards,
