Sum of column values from different tables

I have 2 tables with a common column. The relationship has already been established. I want to add the values in the columns to get a total score for each row. How do I do this? See example tables below. The supplier column is the common column. I want the final table to be all the metrics and the supplier and the total score.

 

Table 1

SupplierMetric 1Metric 2
Supplier A510
Supplier B1015
Supplier C015

 

Table 2

SupplierMetric 3Metric 4
Supplier A520
Supplier B1515
Supplier C05

 

Final table

SupplierMetric 1Metric 2Metric 3Metric 4Total Score
Supplier A51052040
Supplier B1015151555
Supplier C0150520

@jeanramonyap ,

You really don't need to create a new table.

Just take your Table1 and add the following 3 Calculated Columns:

Metric3 = RELATED( Table2[Metric 3] )
Metric4 = RELATED(Table2[Metric 4] )
Total = [Metric 1] + [Metric 2] + [Metric3] + [Metric4]

SupplierMetric 1Metric 2Metric3Metric4Total

Supplier A 5 10 5 20 40
Supplier B 10 15 15 15 55
Supplier C 0 15 0 5 20

The Related function works because you have created the Supplier relationship.

If you really do need or want a separate table, just copy Table1 and give it another name (i.e "Final Table),

Regards,

@jeanramonyap , You need to create common supplier dimension

 

then you can 4 measure and 1 sum of all 4

 

Total = Sum(Table1[Metric1])+ Sum(Table1[Metric2])+ Sum(Table2[Metric3])+ Sum(Table2[Metric4])

This doesn't work because I don't want the sum per column. I want the evaluation to be row by row. Your recommendation will sum the values for metric 1 + sum of values for metric 2 and so on, which is something I don't want.  The final table has to look like this.
