Display lowest Hierarchy slicer field selected

Hi everyone,

 

I am new to power bi and DAX, I have a hierarch slicer and a card to display what I have selected in the slicer how do I do this in DAX?

 

here is a screenshot of what I want to achieve

ask2.PNG

once I select on new zealand it should display new zealand, when I select 2079 it should only display 2079, when I select an employee is should display only the employee for example 1006098 - Simon Wall

 

 

Thanks in advance for your responses

May be.. something like this.

Checking if the lowest level is filtered>>then next upper level>>then next

See the attached sample file as well

 

Measure =
SWITCH (
    TRUE (),
    ISFILTERED ( Table1[Level3] ), CONCATENATEX ( VALUES ( Table1[Level3] ), [Level3], "," ),
    ISFILTERED ( Table1[Level2] ), CONCATENATEX ( VALUES ( Table1[Level2] ), [Level2], "," ),
    ISFILTERED ( Table1[Level1] ), CONCATENATEX ( VALUES ( Table1[Level1] ), [Level1], "," )
)

I see that order of levels 2 and 3 in your MEASURE was not correct.

 

Use this MEASURE

 

Selectedslicer =
SWITCH (
    TRUE (),
    ISFILTERED ( FACT_UTE[Employee] ), SELECTEDVALUE ( FACT_UTE[Employee] ),
    ISFILTERED ( FACT_UTE[SG_Code] ), SELECTEDVALUE ( FACT_UTE[SG_Code] ),
    ISFILTERED ( FACT_UTE[OC] ), SELECTEDVALUE ( FACT_UTE[OC] ),
    ISFILTERED ( FACT_UTE[Region] ), SELECTEDVALUE ( FACT_UTE[Region] ),
    "Select a value"
)

Hi @Zubair_Muhammad ,

 

I tried your formula and tweaked it, I came up with a problem.

it works when I select region, and the following hierarchy but when I select 20014 it doesn't appear, but when I select employee it does appear

Could you share your file?

 

Did you include all four levels in the formula?

HI @Zubair_Muhammad 

 

I am looking for help with similar case, I need to create a measure which will return selected value from hierarchy slicer but only when there is only one selected. 

 

When there is more than one value selected it should return BLANK. 

 

In this example it should return BLANK :

In this selection it shoudl return 20 :

In this example it should return 110:
