Hey @radissoufan ,


I'm not sure if I fully understood your question.

If you use the same dimensional tables, there is an interaction between the visuals. So you if you select a value from the map, the bar chart should adapt.


As I understood you want to change that from highlighting to filtering, right? For that you can change the interaction of the visuals from highlight to cross filter:

If I didn't understand the question right, maybe just put a few screenshots and try to describe what you want exactly to happen.


If you need any help please let me know.
If I answered your question I would be happy if you could mark my post as a solution ✔️ and give it a thumbs up 👍
Best regards

Hello ... thank you for responding

My question about drilling down in bar chart if I drilled down in the map... 

I mean When I drilled down the next level in the map ... barchart filterd correctly but with previous level... what I mean it didnt drill down when the map drilled down


I have US with total 5000 and next level NY 3000 and seattle with 2000

when I drill down to NY on the map

the bar chart change to 3000 but still holding US text as label... I want it to drill to display NY when I drill in the map... is that possible?
