## RELATED/RELATEDTABLE with condition

I have two tables (1) Order Details (Date, SKU, Units Sold) and (2) Cost (SKU, Unit Cost, Year).

I need to bring in Unit Cost to my Order Details table so I can get my COGS. But I also need to evaluate which cost to apply based on the Year. The Cost table is a updated every year and new rows are added.

Any help will be much appreciated.

Cheers,

David

Hi,

In the Order Details Table, create a calculated column to extract Year from the Date: Year = YEAR('Order Details'[Date]).  Assuming every Year and SKU record in the Cost Table is a unique combination, try this calculated column formula in the Order Details Table

=LOOKUPVALUE('Cost'[Unit Cost],'Cost'[SKU],[SKU],'Cost'[Year],[Year])

This formula should work without creating any relationship betwenn the 2 Tables.

Hope this helps.

If the latest Cost values are still not available, how do I nest the LOOKUPVALUE to return the latest value available?

Please have the basic courtesy to thank me for helping you in the first place - it is just basic etiquettes.  For your second question, share both datasets (in a format that i can paste them in an Excel file) and show the expected result.
