How to put 2 tables together? - challenging

Hi,

I have 2 tables in my data model: Accounts - the main one and Filters - the one I want to use for presenting data in a given format:

Accounts:

AccountSynteticValueSign
201-1-7-392011001
201-2-3-4-672011291
202-4-3202
148-1
459459351

Filters:

Level1Level2Filter
1.Fixed Assets1.1 Buildings201-1
1.Fixed Assets1.2 Computers201-2
2.Current Assets202
3. Bank Charges459

I would like to present the data in sort of the filtered format, where Output=Value * Sign for all the rows from Accounts: table matching the Filter from Filters: table

Output:

Level1Level2FilterOutput
1.Fixed Assets1.1 Buildings201100*1 + 129 *1
1.Fixed Assets1.2 Computers201-2129 * 1
2.Current Assets202148*(-1)
3. Bank charges45935*1

Challenges:

  1. The Output table can be several hundreds row long and changing from one month to another as new accounts are added - in my opinion it prevents use of Set Analysis in the Output: chart itself (I may be wrong here, but it's not something I can do manually)
  2. Filters are manual, thus they can have different length.
    1. The account can be 461-1, 461-2 and filter can be 461 or
    2. The account can be 203-1-5, 204-1-5 and the filter can be ???-1-5
  3. My Accounts: table is the core of the data model. Filters table is a manual inline table.

Question:

How can I create a connection key to put those 2 tables in relation?

Any help would be appreciated
