DropDown with column name as filter

Hi Guys

 

I have a table, let's say

 

Productqs1qs2qs3qs4
anullnullxx
bxnullxnull

 

I have some visuals (pie chart, table,...) based on this table and everything works fine.

 

Now the enduser wants to be able to have another visual, a dropdown, where he/she can choose the column names, like

 

qs1
qs2
qs3

qs4

 

Based on the selected option in this dropdown, the other visuals would adjust.

The idea behind this is, the enduser wants so see, wich products contains "qs4".

 

Of course I could add every column manually in the visual. But I want to do this with a query (I have more than five columns :-).

 

Best 

Aleks
