## NON-related Slicer (multi selection problem)

Hello again community.

Could you please help me with this simple human logic (I think), but a little tricky for DAX calculations? I have 90% of work done, but I cannot implement last logic to the measure because I am not undertanding how to arrange / fix table massage error (I think because I am using VALUES which brings / spected one single value).

I already have validated when user does not select anything (will be blank).

Problem: I have an external Slicer (created a non related table with distinct values), but I don't know how to SUM UP measure YTD PP when user selects more than one option. When they do, error message appears.

DAX Measure

```YTD Investment in Pure Player =
IF (
HASONEVALUE ( PurePlayers_NOT_Related[PURE PLAYER] ),
CALCULATE (
[Mthy Bil],
FILTER ( 'Date', 'Date'[Month Number] < MONTH ( TODAY () ) ),
FILTER (
MiddleOffice,
MiddleOffice[GLOBAL GROUP] <> "EXTERNAL"
&& MiddleOffice[GLOBAL GROUP] <> "MIDDLE OFFICE"
),
FILTER (
MiddleOffice,
MiddleOffice[PURE PLAYER] = VALUES ( PurePlayers_NOT_Related[PURE PLAYER] )
)
),
BLANK ()
)```

I think the problem is related when I try to filter. I don't know how to bring more than one value selection and then sum up

`MiddleOffice[PURE PLAYER] = VALUES ( PurePlayers_NOT_Related[PURE PLAYER] )`

Correct scenario (one slicer value selection):

Correct Scenario (one value slicer selection)

Incorrect scenario (more than one slicer value selection): Correct visualization of YTD PP should be 3.866.462 (AFFIPERF + MOBEXT)

Wrong Scenario (more than one slicer value selection)

## Re: NON-related Slicer (multi selection problem)

Hi all, Hi @Dog again.

I could work by myself this entire afternoon and now I finally got a solution

What I did to resolve the Slicer Issue? (final table result as follow below):

• Kept same data model;
• Created two relationships: First active between MiddleOffice table and Slicer; Second inactive between Pilot table and Slicer (final print screen below);
• Update measures (as per below), but the main difference is inside "FC Investment in Pure Player" measure. I deactivated first relationship and then activated second one using USERELATIONSHIP function. Worked like a magic, hehe

Final Relationships

Updated measures:

```*** YTD Investment in FO =
IF (
CALCULATE (
[Invest Pilot BRL];
ALLEXCEPT ( Pilot; Pilot[YEAR] );
FILTER ( Pilot; Pilot[VEHICLE THROUGH] = "OTHERS" );
FILTER ( Pilot; Pilot[MEDIA TYPE] = "MEDIA - ON" );
FILTER ( 'Date'; 'Date'[Month Number] < MONTH ( TODAY () ) );
FILTER (
GlobalGroup;
GlobalGroup[GLOBAL GROUP] <> "EXTERNAL"

= BLANK ();
BLANK ();
CALCULATE (

ALLEXCEPT ( Pilot; Pilot[YEAR] );
FILTER ( Pilot; Pilot[VEHICLE THROUGH] = "OTHERS" );
FILTER ( Pilot; Pilot[MEDIA TYPE] = "MEDIA - ON" );
FILTER ( 'Date'; 'Date'[Month Number] < MONTH ( TODAY () ) );
FILTER (

ALLEXCEPT ( Pilot; Pilot[YEAR] );
FILTER ( Pilot; Pilot[VEHICLE THROUGH] = "OTHERS" );
FILTER ( Pilot; Pilot[MEDIA TYPE] = "MEDIA - ON" );

FILTER (

)
)
// According to PILOT data

*** FC Investment in MO =

FILTER ( 'Date'; 'Date'[Month Number] >= MONTH ( TODAY () ) );

FILTER (

)
)
) // According to PILOT data

*** FC Investment in Pure Player = // ### USING SECOND (inactive) RELATIONSHIP
IF (
NOT ( ISFILTERED ( PP_Slicer[PURE PLAYER] ) );
BLANK ();
CALCULATE (
[Invest Pilot BRL];
USERELATIONSHIP ( Pilot[PURE PLAYER]; PP_Slicer[PURE PLAYER] );
FILTER ( 'Date'; 'Date'[Month Number] >= MONTH ( TODAY () ) );
FILTER (
Pilot;
Pilot[GLOBAL GROUP] <> "EXTERNAL"
&& Pilot[GLOBAL GROUP] <> "MIDDLE OFFICE"
)
)
)```

I hope this scenario can help some other people, at least with insights.

Thanks all again and best regards,

## Re: NON-related Slicer (multi selection problem)

Hi,

is it not possible to create a relationship between your

`PurePlayers_NOT_Related `

table and the

`MiddleOffice`

table and just allow that to filter down the figures? I'd imagine that you would then only need to remove the red text in your measure?

## Re: NON-related Slicer (multi selection problem)

Yeah, you are right. Easiest way , but in my case I will have another issue. Let me try to give full scenario. Maybe you can get the picture and help me with a kind of "manual summation" using a slicer that do not intefere in a another measure in the same visual (in this case a table or matrix).

• I have two different tables called MiddleOffice and Pilot;
• They have a common column called "Pure Player" (which are AFFIPERF, MOBEXT, ECSELIS and SOCIALYSE);
• As far as I know, with the scenario below I cannot relate both Tables (Middle Office and Pilot) because If I do I will not be able to prevent Filter Context in all measures participating in the same visual, right?;

I am sharing Files:

• Sample file .pbix;
• Tables_MiddleOffice & Pilot (relationship print screen);
• Visual_Using_MiddleOffice & Pilot Tables_1 (Final visual print screen with notes).

*** From Pilot table I have measures

YTD FO (freezed) = Billings Jan17-Sep17 EXCEPT AFFIPERF, MOBEXT, ECSELIS and SOCIALYSE. Slicer CANNOT interfere!;

FC FO (freezed) = Forecast Oct17-Dec17 EXCEPT AFFIPERF, MOBEXT, ECSELIS and SOCIALYSE.  Slicer CANNOT interfere!;

FC MO (freezed) = Forecast Oct17-Dec17 JUST FOR AFFIPERF, MOBEXT, ECSELIS and SOCIALYSE. Slicer CANNOT interfere!;

FC PP (flexible) = Forecast Oct17-Dec17 ACCORDING TO slicer. If all selected result will be = FC MO. Slicer HAS TO interfere!;

*** From MiddleOffice table I have measures:

YTD MO = Billings Jan17-Sep17 JUST FOR AFFIPERF, MOBEXT, ECSELIS and SOCIALYSE. Slicer CANNOT interfere!

YTD PP = Billings Jan17-Sep17  ACCORDING TO slicer. If all selected result will be = YTD MO. Slicer selection HAS TO interfere!;
