Description column on slicer?

Hi Folks,

I have a slicer to select AccountID for some budget analysis, but it only displays the AccountID. It would be more useful if the dropdown would also display the AccountDescription so the users would know what account they are selecting. Any thoughts on how to accomplish this?

 

Thanks,

Andy

Hi @rar4010,

 

If I understand you correctly, you can add a calculate column to combine AccountID and AccountDescription, then use the combined column as Slicer on the report in this scenario. The formula below to create the calculate column if for your reference. Smiley Happy

Account ID and Description = 'Table1'[AccountID] & "-" & 'Table1'[AccountDescription]
