Supplemental Spreadsheet Use

I have an Excel file that is a list of Job Numbers considered "Projects"

 

I have a relationships created between the Job Numer of the Excel spreadsheet and a table from SQL called "JobSummary." 

 

"JobSummary" is a table listing every job in the system. 

 

I am trying to write measures but need to be able to only calculate data IF JobNumber in "JobSummary"= Job Number considered "Project"

 

I wanted to initially write is as a calculated column saying =IF(JobSummary[JobNumber]= ProjectJobs[JobNumber], "Project", "Not Project")  but nothing works. BI won't recognize the ProjectJobs[JobNumber] as an option to put into the calculations

@bhmiller89,

 

Based on your dscription, you need to check if the current JobNumber exist on another table or not, right?

 

If that is the case, you can use lookupvalue function to check if this value exist on that table or not.

IsProject = IF(ISBLANK(LOOKUPVALUE(ProjectJobs[JobNumber ],ProjectJobs[JobNumber ],JobSummary[JobNumber ])),"Project","Not Project")
