Measure ignore slicer filter

I'm trying to create a measure that shows the the total number of days applied by a date filter (to use as a denominator in other measures).  The fact table doesn't necessarily have contiguos dates at the required granulairty so I used the Date table dates.  The measure returns the correct result when visualised alone, but when I add the measure to a table visualistaion it ignores filtering applied on it by a slicer


The measure is...


Total Days = DISTINCTCOUNT('Date'[Date])


My data is a star schema of 4 table : a Sales Fact + Product, Store, and Date dimensions. There is a 1:M relationship between each dimension and the fact table


The table visualisation has



'Measures'[Total Days]

With a 'Store'[Name] slicer and a 'Date'[Date] page level filter

Re: Measure ignore slicer filter

Hi @edwardrmiles


Change the "Cross filter direction" in the relationship to "Both" (for Product and Sales Fact table).





I hope this helps



Re: Measure ignore slicer filter

Thanks @BILASolution that does work, but I ommited to mention that I'd like to introduce a second fact table to the model, so the dimensions will have realtionships to both fact tables.  Bi directional relationships don't work propertly with conformed dimensions. Ideally I'm looking for a DAX solution
