I am having an issue finding a solution to a problem that i feel is doable. What I am attempting to do is make a selection in one table and the have another table show only items that correspond to that selction.
I have two unreleated tables, Table1 and Table2.
Table1 ID Issue Assigned Detected
1 Issue1 PersonA PersonB
2 Issue2 PersonA PersonC
3 Issue3 PersonD PersonE
4 Issue4 PersonB PersonB 5 Issue5 PersonB PersonA
Person Status1 Status2 Status3
PersonA 1 2 1
PersonB 2 3 4
PersonE 4 5 6
(as far as this question in concerned, the status values (whcih are measures themselves) are irrelevent, but just to show how data is presented)
I would like to be able to select a row in Table 2 and then have table 1 filtered to display the selected person in Table 1 if they appear in the Assigned or Detected column. So if I select PersonB in Table2, I should see ID's 1, 4 & 5 in Table1.
I have a measure that allows me to get the Person value from Table 2, but I can't figiure out how i can filter Table1 by it. I tried with a calculated column,
Display = if(Table1[Deteted]=[Selected Person Table2] || Table1[Assigned]=[Selected Person Table2],1,0)
And then using a visual level filter to only show results where Display Is 1.
This didn't work like I was hoping. In doing some more reading, it seems to be because the calculated column is only updated when the model is updated, not upon a selection. I'm thinking this can be done through a measure, but I'm not sure how I can go through each table item to make this determination.
