Hi @Powerbi_superus,

In fact, the table visuals not integrate with the filter feature on the column header. 

BTW, data model tables contain this filter feature, you can consider using filters or add filters on the report page. (filter panel or slicer visual)

I agree that we can use slicer.

In qlik view we could directly filter the column of the table . Is there any feasibility to do the same in power bi ? 

Hey @Powerbi_superus ,

inline filtering is currently not supported with the table visual.
