I have an MSSQL DB in a Data Warehouse structure. From one of my Fact Tables I want to pull back a value from an associated Dimension Table and use this as part of a calculated field, but i seem to be having problems with the formula. I'd be greatful if someone could help. The formula that it refuse to like it like this.

((SELECT Table1.Col3 FROM Table1 WHERE Table1.Col3 = Table2.Col2) * Table2.Col4)

This formula is in Table2.Col5 for example. Could someone please help, im guessing the syntax is wrong somewhere along the lines.

Kind Regards
