ALLSELECTED on a slicer

Hi,

 

Is there a way to use AllSelected on a slicer ?

I have few slicers on the report and wanted to use the different slicer selections for different tables.

 

Slicer 1 will filter table 1

Slicer 2 will filter table 2 and so on. 

 

Using edit intractions I have achieved the filter context but I need to add a column to the table but this needs to look at only slicer 2. 

 

Is this possible?

 

thanks.

Table = DISTINCT('financials'[Country])

 

3. create measure as below to replace the column your mentioned.

MEASURE COGS2 = CALCULATE(SUM(financials[COGS]),FILTER(CALCULATETABLE(ALLSELECTED('financials'),ALL(financials[Country])),'financials'[Country] in DISTINCT('Table'[Country])))

 

4.Using edit intractions to achieved the filter context

Do table 1 and table 2 have relationship(s)

If so, when the table 1 slicer slices table 1 it might also affect the records displayed from table 2, and vice versa.

If there are no relationships between the 2 tables, then you can create your slicers directly from columns in the tables, and each slicer will slice only the table it is drawn from.

Hi @kentyler ,

 

Thanks for your reply. 

I meant table visualization, there is just 1 table in the data model. 

 

I wanted to do comparitive analysis, so I need to replicate the slicers and tables and then make different selections on the slicers.

 

thanks.

If you go to Power Query you can make a "reference" copy of the table, which should not be affected by slicers you put on the first table, and you should be able to "slice" the reference table independently

Hi @kentyler ,

thanks, thats definitely an option. 

 

But is there no way we can capture the selections from the slicers (using the same column) in the example I mentioned.

Hi @v-easonf-msft ,

 

Thanks for your reply and the attachment. 

I can use this in my current model.

 

But is there any way we can refer to the slicers without duplicating the tables or creating references?

 

Is there a way we can use the slicer names in DAX?

 

thanks.

Hi , @PBIfanatic 

Sorry, this is the only solution I think of at the moment.

Hope others can come up with better solutions

I'm not clear.

When you pick a value in slicer 1, and then in slicer 2

do you want the table to be filtered by both values

or do you want to have to tables (displayed) each of which is filtered by a different slicer
