Bar chart to filter slicer

Hello All,

 

I am trying to create a slicer that can be filtered by a bar chart. The data used for both the bar chart and the slicer are from the same table.

 

Here is a simplified data table for my problem. Say I have the following table:

 

IDInitials
1AA
2SS
3AA
4SS
5WW
6WW
7AA
8SS
9WW

 

I created a bar chart with initials on the X-axis and the count of the initials on the y-axis.

 

The slicer will only show the IDs (Iist of numbers from 1 to 9). When i select WW on the bar chart i want the slicer data to be filtered down to only show 5,6 and 9.

 

I ask this as i have many IDs and if i can manage to reduce the list of IDs on the slicer it will massively help me. I have to have the slicer as it helps me with query reduction.

Hi @Adham ,

 

The bar chart can't drive/filter a slicer. You can use a simple table instead of slicer for being driven by the bar chart.

 

Give a thumbs up if this post helped you in any way and mark this post as solution if it solved your query !!!
