connecting multiple values with one value

Hi girls & guys,


once again I need your help.

I have following issue.

- two tables which are connected via the item#. N-->1

- table #1 has multiple shelflife values for some items, hence sometimes mutliple item#rows. (N)

- table #2 is a itemcharacteristic table, hence 1 row per item# (1)

- I build a max and min value DAX these shelflife values since i am only interested in the extemes.

- i want to create 2 colums in my characteristic table in order being able to filter by these shelflifedates on an item#level.


how can i extract those values and implment them. 

I need something Like: 

IF(itemID [table1] = itemID [table2]; shelflifedays(max); 0)

the idea is that if the item# match the value from table#1 is displayed in my new column in table2. 


Thanks in advance.

Re: connecting multiple values with one value

It would be helpful if you posted some data, and also clarify. You posted this in the Power Query forum, but you are using DAX language. I think Power Query is were this goes honestly, but without data to play with it is hard to fully undertand and impossible to show you a code example.

Re: connecting multiple values with one value

Hi @Bademeister1337 

For example, data example as below:


Create a measure

Measure = CALCULATE(MAX(Table2[shelflifedays]),FILTER(ALLSELECTED(Table2),Table2[item]=MAX(Table2[item])))

Re: connecting multiple values with one value

Hello Maggie,


your result is exactly what i was looking for but for a column. 

Unfortunately if i aplly this to a column i reveive only one value for each row. 

Is there a way to apply a this mechanism in order to get a colum with these values?
