## Do not allow a measure element to be filtered

Afternoon everyone,

I have a load of tiered measures and have run into a problem. I use this to calculate the number of students below 90%

```Persistent Absence =
VAR __ISINSCOPE = ISINSCOPE ( Attendance[Year] )
VAR __PACore = CALCULATE(DISTINCTCOUNT(Attendance[UPN-SUID]),FILTER(
VALUES('Attendance'[UPN-SUID]),
[Attendance Percentage YTD] <= 0.90))

RETURN

IF (
__ISINSCOPE,
__PACore,
CALCULATE(__PACore,NOT('Attendance'[Year] IN {"Nursery", "Reception"}
)))```

I then use the following to find the percentage:

`Persistent Absence % = Divide([Persistent Absence YTD], DISTINCTCOUNT(Attendance[UPN-SUID]))`

I then have multiple measures that give me breakdowns of the percentage such as:

```Male Persistent Absence % YTD =
Calculate([Persistent Absence % YTD], 'Student Database (New)'[Gender] IN {"Male"})```

The problem is that I only want to filter the numerator of the second measure by the 3rd and not the denominator. Is there a way to make:

Persistent Absence % = Divide([Persistent Absence YTD], DISTINCTCOUNT(Attendance[UPN-SUID]))

the element in bold not filterable by the 'Student Database (New)' table?

The alternative is editing multiple measures rather than just one.

Thanks,

Stan

hi @StanleyBlack ,

I'd like to suggest you take a look at following link to use all function to ignore specific filters:

Managing “all” functions in DAX: ALL, ALLSELECTED, ALLNOBLANKROW, ALLEXCEPT
