Ignoring a filter

Dear experts,

I am trying to create a measure to show me the sales amount per month for all years except 2009 (in my real project will be "current year" but for this excercise this can work)

 

My issue is that I need a slicer with the 2009 year selected. 

 

when I do:

Sales NO CY = 
CALCULATE (
    [# Sales];
    FILTER (
        Sales ;
        NOT ( ( YEAR ( Sales[Order Date] ) ) = 2009 )
    )
)

The column is obviously blank since the selected year on the year slicer is 2009. 

 

If I do:

FILTER (
        ALL(Sales) ;
        NOT ( ( YEAR ( Sales[Order Date] ) ) = 2009 )

I get the same amount on all months and it's not what I'm looking for. 

 

The file that I'm using to illustrate the issue is here:

Thanks in advance!

Re: Ignoring a filter

have you tried using the calculate function like this;

sales = calculate(sum(sales), 
             year = 2019)

then using a month variable in your visual to break it out?
 
Thanks

Re: Ignoring a filter

the title doesn't really match the content - but if you want a visual to ignore a filter use 'Edit Interactions' under the format tab.

Re: Ignoring a filter

Apologies for not explaining myself better in the title. 

 

I can't do it in "Edit interactions" since I will have other columns related to the selected year.

 

In this particular column I'll be using an AVERAGEX of the sales amount but I'll looking for to ignore the sales amount of the current year (or the 2009 year) as per the example attached. 

 

The measure I'm working on on my real report is the following:

 

# Cases Forecast- = 
VAR CasesNoCY =CALCULATE (
    [# Cases];
    FILTER (
        Cases ;
        NOT ( ( YEAR ( Cases[Date] ) ) = YEAR ( TODAY () ) )
    )
)
RETURN
CALCULATE(AVERAGEX(VALUES('Date'[Date]);CasesNoCY); ALL('Date'[Calendar Year]))

The issue is that since in that table I have other columns using data for the current year, I can't filter it out for the visual. 

The reason I need to eliminate the current year is to avoid using the actual Nr of Cases on the past dates for the current year forecast. 

I hope that it makes sense.

Re: Ignoring a filter

Try

Sales NO CY = 
var _year = SELECTEDVALUE('Date'[Year])
return
CALCULATE (
    COUNTROWS ( Sales ),ALL('Date'[Year]),not('Date'[Year] =_year)
)

Re: Ignoring a filter

try the above - failing that, is this what you're looking for?

Re: Ignoring a filter

Dear @amitchandak and @jbarnes ,

 

Thanks a lot for your answers. The solution proposed by @amitchandak works perfectly in the example, but I must be doing something wrong in my real project, since I'm still getting blanks. 

 

This is my measure:

 

# Cases Forecast-NotCY = 
VAR Year_selected =
    SELECTEDVALUE ( 'Date'[Calendar Year] )
RETURN
    CALCULATE (
        AVERAGEX (
            VALUES ( 'Date'[Date] );
            CALCULATE (
                [# Cases];
                ALL ( 'Date'[Calendar Year] );
                NOT ( 'Date'[Calendar Year] = Year_selected )
            )
        )
    )

My #Cases measure is just a DISTINTCOUNT for Cases ID. 

 

would you be able to see why this isn't working for me here?

Re: Ignoring a filter

Are you trying to get Avg no cases per day ??

Re: Ignoring a filter

then try something like that

Avg Sales NO Day = 
var _year = SELECTEDVALUE('Date'[Year])
return
CALCULATE (
    Sales[# Sales],ALL('Date'[Year]),not('Date'[Year] =_year)
)/CALCULATE (
    count('Date'[Date]),ALL('Date'[Year]),not('Date'[Year] =_year)
)

Dear @amitchandak 

 

Thanks a lot for your effort. I am still getting blanks with this one. 

 

I'll try to reproduce the issue with a dummy report and post it here.
