Re: Creating a table from a table visualization

I don't do much in PowerPivot in Excel but if it is DAX code, then yes, you can use VAR. Now, actually feeding that dynamic table to a pivot table, that's probably not supported as I know you can't do that in Desktop even though I am a huge fan of allowing Table and Matrix visualizations to accept a Measure that returns a table as output. So, for example, I do a lot of this kind of thing:

 

Measure = 
VAR __table = FILTER('SomeTable',[Column] = "some value")
RETURN
MAXX(__table,[Some Column])
