Dynamically Changing X Axis with respect to the Slicer Value Selected

WhatsApp Image 2017-09-15 at 12.47.01 PM (1).jpegWhatsApp Image 2017-09-15 at 12.47.01 PM.jpegHi Experts,


I have Date Dimension with attributes DateID,Date,Month,Quarter,Year.

Fact table: DateID,SalesValue.


My report has 4 slicers: Year. Quarter, Month, Day.

I want to plot bar graph for SalesValue Vs Time Component (May be Year ,QTR anything)


Time component would be dynamic .

Meaning :


When I select 2017 from Year slicer ,my bar graph on x-axis should show up 4 Quarters for 2017 Vs SalesValue.

Similarly, When I select Quarter the x-axis should dynamically switch to months of those quarter.

Any help or workaround would be appreciated.


Attached Image shown the scenario . As year is selected from slicer ,it shows Quarter and with quarter , it shows up month.


Also , we are referring the below link but the issue seems to be differnt .Here I need to select a value from slicer wheras below link only shows about the attribute from the slicer I select .Ex Year ,Month








Here is one way you can do it.  I have created a simple PBIX file that you can download to see how it it works!AtDlC2rep7a-n1mIeiBbW3A4gMmL

Hi @Phil_Seamark,

I also got the same issue.Thanks for your post.


The pbix uploaded by you has Data table at Day, Month,Quarter and Year level. And date dimension has only one column.

What if I have only DayID in fact table.How to get then dynamic measure on month,year and quarter level?
Or Is it necessary to have Day,Month,Quarter,Year in the fact table to use USERRELATIONSHIP for calculation.

Is there any workaround if I have only DayID and MyValue in fact table?
