GENERATEALL DAX Function (Table manipulation)

The second table expression will be evaluated for each row in the first table. Returns the crossjoin of the first table with these results, including rows for which the second table expression is empty.

Syntax

GENERATEALL ( <Table1>, <Table2> )
Parameter Attributes Description
Table1

The base table in Generate.

Table2
Row Context

A table expression that will be evaluated for each row in the first table.

Return values

Table An entire table or a table with one or more columns.

Remarks

  • If the evaluation of table2 for the current row in table1 returns an empty table, then the current row from table1 will be included in the results and columns corresponding to table2 will have null values for that row. This is different than GENERATE() where the current row from table1 will not be included in the results.
  • All column names from table1 and table2 must be different or an error is returned.
