multiply tow columns from different tables

Hi,

 

I am very new to BI and im sure this should be simple but cant get it:

 

I need to multiply a Weight field in one table by a value column in another table ie:

 

Table 1

Col1 Type name

Col2 Type Weight (in KGS)

 

Table 2

Col 1Type name

Col2 Type Value (per KG)

 

I want to create another column in Table 1 which gives me the total value i.e weight*value per KG = Total Value

 

Thanks in advance!

Give this a try.

Amount = SUMX ( 'Scrap Data (2)', 'Scrap Data (2)'[Weight] * RELATED ( 'Scrap Type Values (2)'[Value]) )

How are the two table joined together?  Can you show a picture of the model view (tables and join arrows)?

You should proably start with an intro to DAX and modeling, something like this.
