## Filter a Matrix based on slicers/measures

I have a matrix and a couple of slicers.

The slicers allow the user to pick the month and the year they want the report to end.

Then I have the following two measures:

```Selected Report Month = SELECTEDVALUE('Calendar'[Month_Number])

Selected Report Year = SELECTEDVALUE('Calendar'[Year])```

Now that I have my end of report setup, I have used measures to determine the start of the report:

```Start Report Date Month = [Selected Report Month]+1

Start Report Date Year = [Selected Report Year] - 1

Report Start = DATE([Start Report Date Year], [Start Report Date Month], 1)```

This give me a MM/DD/YYYY hh:mm:ss start date.

From here I finished my end report date:

`Report End = EOMONTH([Report Start],11)+TIME(23,59,59)`

So now I have the bounds of my report from Midnight on the 1st of a month until 23:59:29 on the last day of the 12th month.

So the question now is, how can I filter a matrix based on the [Report Start] and [Report End] measures?

Depends. Please see this post regarding How to Get Your Question Answered Quickly: https://community.powerbi.com/t5/Community-Blog/How-to-Get-Your-Question-Answered-Quickly/ba-p/38490

You could create a filtering measure the reports back if a row in your matrix falls within the report start and end date but the specifics of that are tough to pin down without sample data.

Accomplished what I was trying to do.

`Filter Month = IF(AND(MAX(Run_Data[Date])>=[Report Start Date Month],MAX(Run_Data[Date])<=[Report End Date]),1,2)`
`Filter Year = IF(AND(MAX(Run_Data[Date])>=[Report Start Date Year],MAX(Run_Data[Date])<=[Report End Date]),1,2)`

Then I had to ensure that Sync Slicers was selected on the view tab. (Missed that)

Since I was setting the page up as static for a particular region, I was able to set up two matrix.

1st Matrix I set the Filter Month = 1

2nd Matrix I set the Filter Year = 1

Now I have:

Here is the file I am using.

The dropdown selections are on the first page, and the matrix is on the third page.

You could create a filtering measure the reports back if a row in your matrix falls within the report start and end date but the specifics of that are tough to pin down without sample data.

So I was trying to figure out a way to do this.

I tried the following:

```Report Year = FILTER(Run_Data, AND(Run_Data[Date] <= [Report Start Date Year], Run_Data[Date] >= [Report End]))

-OR-

Report End = FILTER(Run_Data, Run_Data[Date] >= [Report End])```

And for both cases I get the error:

"The expression refers to multiple columns. Multiple columns cannot be converted to a scalar value."

Also tried without measures:

`Report End = FILTER(Run_Data, Run_Data[Date]>=(SELECTEDVALUE('Calendar'[Date].[Year])))`
