Re: Cannot open the filter

Hi @saivenkat ,

You can't remove the first one and that is also not necessary. They filter basically different things: if you filter on the original item in the filter pane, it filters the aggregate. If you add the column again, you are filtering the data context that is used to calculate the actual aggregate. What is it that you are trying to do? Also, why haven't you added the original 'f2' column that was in your visual first?

Re: Cannot open the filter

You have the filter pane open, what do you exactly mean 'you can't open the filter'? We can all see your filter pane right there? 😛

Re: Cannot open the filter

The value is a number, and because it is aggregated (like summed, probably looking at your visual), you can't simply filter that one. What you can do is drag the same column to the Visual Filter again and then you can choose basic filtering.

Note the same column is in the VIsual Filter pane twice.

 

Kind regards
