Creating a Single Slicer for Multiple Column

Hi,

 

I have data in two different tables in two different file as mentioned below. Want to put one common slicer for both on the month to show the monthly variance for below two tables. If I select any month from the slicer the graph will show that month data only from Table 1 & Table 2.

Crux: need to put slicer for the data in columns.

 

Thanks

@ankitkagarwal88,

1. Unpivot your columns of Table 1 and Table 2 in Query Editor of Power BI Desktop.

2. Rename Attribute column in Table 1 and Table 2 to Month.

3. Create a new table using DAX below.
Table = DISTINCT(SELECTCOLUMNS('Table 1',"Month", 'Table 1'[Month]))

4. Create relationship using Month field among the three tables.

5. Create slicer using the Month field of the new table, then you are able to use the slicer to filter your visuals.

Re: Creating a Single Slicer for Multiple Column

Hello,

If you create a relationship between the tables, filters will work on both.

Alternatively you can create a new date table and link them both to your new table.
Then you use that data for filtering purposes.
Use this link for more information about a date table:

Good luck

@ankitkagarwal88,

1. Merge the two tables in Query Editor useing Merge Queries->Merge as new functionality, then expand the value field in the Merged table.

2. Create relationship between the Table and Merged table using Month field, create a calculated column in the merged table using dax below.

Column = (Merge1[Table 1.Value]-Merge1[Value])/Merge1[Table 1.Value]
