Region,                                                              Region,
State,                                                                State,
District,                                                             District




Now my requiremnt is I have to link my paramter to database table.

Re: Multiple fields link using parameter

Hi @sreekanth2020,

The table in database has Region, State, District, Sub-District, Sales columns, and the Parameter include the Region, State, District values, right? If it is, we are not able to use parameter. The values in parameter must come from the rows in table. While the values you listed are the column name rather than values in rows. For example, the first picture is table wanted to create the report. You can create a parameter like the second screenshot, the repot is filter by country A when you select A in parameter. Here is an article which can help you better understanding for the parameter clearly.


As you described, the plot display tendency of sales according to Region, State, or District, but what’s the horizontal level? Based on my understanding, if select the region, the plot shows region on x-axis and the rales on y-axis. Which the x-axis will change when you select the District. The report’s structure is changed. It’s inconsequent, it same report should be filtered by the what you want.

Please share more details or sample data for further analysis.

Re: Multiple fields link using parameter

Hi Angelia,


Thanks for your quick help !!!

I'm expecting the relationship between Paramter and DataTable is One-to-Many.

What ever you have mention in example covers the One-to-One relationship.

If you have any article or sample file which covers the One-to-Many relationship please share with me.


Coming to your question..
On X-axis i want to place the parameters & Y-axis Sum(Sales)


If i do selection as "Region" in paramter my x-axis has to populate all regions(Like:East,West,South,Cental,North).
If i select State my x-axis has to populate all states..



Thanks in advance.....

Re: Multiple fields link using parameter

Hi @sreekanth2020

The important is not One-to-One or One-to-many relationship. The description and example given are used to explain that it’s unsuitable to use parameter for your requirement. The values in parameter must come from the rows in table rather than column name. In your scenario, you want to create a parameter including Region, State, Distinct which are columns in Table.

When you select Region, you want to filter the column. All the filter and parameter in PowerBI are to rows in Table. You’d better study the article which introduce the usage the parameter and application scene.
