## making visible a column from an external table in a formula

Hello

My table "CALENDRIER FINANCIER" is made of CROSSJOIN of two columns of two other tables "DATES" and "AFFECTATION  COLLABORATEURS"

What do y have to do to make visible in a formula of "CALENDRIER FINANCIER" some other columns of "AFFECTATION COLLABORATEURS".

Underneath for example I can't see "DATE DUBUT" or "DATE FIN" of "AFFECTATION COLLABORATEUR" (in Red). I only can see calculated columns of AFFECTATION COLLABORATEUR (in green)

## Re: making visible a column from an external table in a formula

According to your description, my understanding is that you want to know why the items in red are not visable when you use the IF() function.

Actually, the first paramrter of IF() function requires a scalar rather than a column, the items in green are all measures, measure can been seen as a scalar in this scenario, as a result, they are visable here, for the items in red, they are not measure, they are a column, we need to use some aggregate functions like SUM(), MIN() to chang them to scalar.

Best Regards,

Teige
