Let slicer show only available years in fact table

Hi

 

I have a Date table (marked as Date table) and a Fact table.
The Date table contains, amongst others, a separate Year field.
There is 1:n relations between Date – Facts.

Date table contains dates from 2010-01-01. Fact table contains data from midst 2016.

Suppose the Date table has a surrogate key, which relates him to the Fact table.
I want to create a slicer containing Years. How do I take care of the fact that this slicer will only contain Years for which there are facts?

What solutions/possibilities do I have?

Regards
Ron

@PowerRon , take a measure from fact and check for not blank

 

measure = sum(Table[value])

 

Check-in visual level filter measure is not blank.

 

This might not work with date range
