PowerBI USERELATIONSHIP function used in a measure not working with an inactive relationship

Hi All,

 

Hope everyone is doing fine. 

I am in the middle of a weird scenario and need help. Please see screenshot below that shows 3 different relationships, one active and two other as non active ones between a DATE table and PSR Data table. Obviously, due to ambiguity, I can not make all three active so the primary active one is between Planned finish from PSR Data table to Date field in Date table.

Now for the measure calculation, see the formula I am using below:

Actual RT New = 
if(
    SELECTEDVALUE('Dates'[Date]) >= [First Actual] && SELECTEDVALUE('Dates'[Date]) <= [Last Actual], 
    CALCULATE(SUM('PSR Data'[Actual Count]),USERELATIONSHIP(Dates[Date],'PSR Data'[Actual Finish]),
	    FILTER(
            ALLSELECTED('Dates'[Date]),
            ISONORAFTER('Dates'[Date], Max('Dates'[Date]), DESC) 
            ) 
        ),
	Blank()
)

 

However, using the USERELATIONSHIP function above is not giving me accurate calculation output. Is the syntax wrong?
If I take out userelationship function from the measure and use expression below for the measure:

Actual RT New = 
if(
    SELECTEDVALUE('Dates'[Date]) >= [First Actual] && SELECTEDVALUE('Dates'[Date]) <= [Last Actual], 
    CALCULATE(SUM('PSR Data'[Actual Count]),
	    FILTER(
            ALLSELECTED('Dates'[Date]),
            ISONORAFTER('Dates'[Date], Max('Dates'[Date]), DESC) 
            ) 
        ),
	Blank()
)

AND Also, I changed the primary relationship to set as below

It then gives me accurate results so the measure does work well in that case but I have to use the combination of inactive relationship between actual finish field from psr and date from date table and leverage userelationship function in the measure, can someone please help me with correct measure syntax, thanks in advance.

In order to use USERELATIONSHIP function you must keep all the relationships 'In-Active', otherwise the existing active relationship will override the relationship you are trying to make using USERELATIONSHIP function. Try deactivating all relationships and use your first measure, it should give you expected result.
