## Filtering table based on measure

Hi,

I have a table with two columns, index and values (ranging from 1 to 100).  I want to filter the table based on user inputs, 'input value' and 'tolerance' (in percentage).  For example, if user inputs '50' as 'input value', and '10' as tolerance, then I want to filter the table with value ranging between 45 and 55.  I created 'What-if' parameters for both input value and tolerance, and created measures 'Min Value' and 'Max Value' to define the limits for filtering.  How do I use these measures to filter the data ('Display Table').  I can use a slicer to filter the table ('Value Filter'), but I want to also filter the data based on input value and tolerance.

Thank you,

Amit.

Hi @amitdesai ,

Try to do like this.

1. create a measure.

``````Filter =
IF(
MAX(Sheet8[Index]) >= [Min] && MAX(Sheet8[Index]) <= [Max],
1,0
)``````

2. Add the measure to the "Filters on this visual".

Hi Lionel Chen,

This solution works!  I used the new filter and display table with rows having '1' as filtered value.  My next step is to figure out how to not display the filter column or make it invisible.

@amitdesai , You can create a new measure like below. Main thing is values /force a context to filter

new measure =
var _min = minx(allselected(slicer), slicer[value])
var _max = maxx(allselected(slicer), slicer[value])
return
calculate(sumx(filter(values(Table[Index]) , [measure] >=_min && [measure] <=_max),[measure]))

Thank you for the quick response!  I do not understand what the code is trying to achieve.  Here is the modified code based on your input:

new measure =
var _min = minx(allselected('TEST DATA'[Value]), [MinValue])
var _max = maxx(allselected('TEST DATA'[Value]), [MaxValue])
return
calculate(sumx(filter(values('TEST DATA'[Index]) , [measure] >=_min && [measure] <=_max),[measure]))

TEST DATA[Value] is the column with values that need to be filtered and TEST DATA[Index] is the other column. [MinValue] and [MaxValue] are measure that determine the lower and upper limit of filtering, respectively (based on the 'Input Value' and 'Tolerance').  Also, I get an error for the new measure indicating circular dependency.
