Vlookup in Chart

Hi, I have a table of Data as per below.  I'd like to do a lookup to find the ParentName based on the ParentID.  I know how to do this in the script, but is it possible to do i the chart itself?

IDNameParentID
1A2
2B3
3C3

 

ie, the equivalent of excel's@ Vlookup(ParentID,ID:Name,2,0)

So the new dimenstion in the chart would return

IDNameParentIDParentName
1A2B
2B3C
3C3C

 

I've tried a few things (like Below function, but this only seems to work on numbers)

no this is not possible, you should do a applymap in the script to get the ParentName on row level
