Filter table based on another table

Just want to ask something. I have 2 tables in Powe BI. One contains a data set of 13 million rows and the other table contains one columb with the list of values I want to filter in the main table. I'm trying to create a filtered table containing only all the values in my 2nd table. Is it possible to filter based on the whole list of my 2nd table?

Re: Filter table based on another table

Can you try this : Table = CALCULATETABLE('TABLE 1',EXCEPT(VALUES('TABLE 1'[ID]),VALUES(TABLE 2 [ID])))

Re: Filter table based on another table

FYI you can also do this at the Power Query level, by doing a Merge as New and using Inner Join

Re: Filter table based on another table

I'll try doing the calculate table. But why do we need to use EXCEPT?

For the Power Query using Merge as New and Inner Join, do you have a link on the guide on how to donit?

Thanks for the reply?

Re: Filter table based on another table

Go to  Query Editor - > Select Table 1->Home -> Combine->Merge Queries-> YOur Table1 will appear default, Select Table 2, Select the joining column, Select the join Type as inner join.

 

You should be able to get lots of example in internet. Check the 'Combine Data ' section in this link.  Its just straight forward.

Thanks
