Make a Table ReadOnly

Hello,

 

I have a table visual that i want to make read-only or just use for displaying and disable filtering.  Is there a visual that does this or can you make a suggestion on how to workaround my issue?

 

Issue:  I have a table visual that displays 3 columns.  Whenever i click on the table visual, it resets the other table views around it back to default or whatever is displayed when the report started.  I already disabled the Interactions.  I am thinking of converting the table visual to something like a card so that it does not affect other tables when i click on it.  But at the same time, i wanted to maintain the table structure visually.

 

Thanks

Glen

Hi @v-lili6-msft ,

 

i found the fix from this post https://community.powerbi.com/t5/Desktop/disable-selectable-value-from-table/m-p/471707/highlight/fa....  I was able to draw an invisible rectangle on top of my table visual that made the table unclickable.  Very clever idea.

 

Thanks again

Glen

hi, @gco 

I think the best way is: 

Change how visuals interact in a Power BI report

Re: Make a Table ReadOnly

Hi @v-lili6-msft ,

 

For some reason the interactions does not work well for what i was trying to do.

In the link above, when i click on the Account Number on Table 1, table 2 gets filtered by Account Number.  And when i click on the Account Number or anywhere on Table 2, Table 1 gets reset to what it was originally.  I wanted Table 1 to not reset - i get this behavior when converting Table 2 to a Multi-row card.  But i want same behavior as the multi-row card, but wanted the looks of a table.

 

Thank you

Glen
