## Using two or more USERELATIONSHIPs

Hi experts,

I am trying to sum Quantity by GroupName in the following relationship scenario. Tables are related via the same name fields.

This is simplified part of a much more complicated relationship scheme in which I can not have active relationships between these three tables. However, I read that one can use nested USERELATIONSHIP instructions. How do I do that?

Thank you.

Hi @gvg

From the tables/relationships you've shown, you should just activate the two relationships simultaneously.

The measure should look something like:

```=
CALCULATE (
SUM ( Sales[Quantity] ),
USERELATIONSHIP ( Sales[Product], Subgroup[Product] ),
USERELATIONSHIP ( Subgroup[SubgroupName], Group[SubgroupName] )
)```

You can also use the CROSSFILTER function with the same effect:

```=
CALCULATE (
SUM ( Sales[Quantity] ),
CROSSFILTER ( Sales[Product], Subgroup[Product], OneWay ),
CROSSFILTER ( Subgroup[SubgroupName], Group[SubgroupName], OneWay )
)```

Thanks! It works. Except that Groups table name should be in quotes ('Groups') as it probably represents DAX keyword.
