Prevent using table as slicer/filter.

I have a report that has various visuals, such as slicers, tables, a map, etc, but only want users to be able to filter via the drop down slicers or the map, but not the tables.  I just want the table to be like a read-only visual.  Is there a way to make tables read-only and stop users from using a table as a filter.

Thanks in advance

Re: Prevent using table as slicer/filter.

Click on your table, go to the Format tab and click on Edit Interactions and turn off filtering by using the "none" icon (circle with a line through it) for all the other visuals on the page.

Re: Prevent using table as slicer/filter.

Thanks, and although I knew about the "Interation" feature, it didnt really do what I was trying to achieve, and was trying to see if there where any other ways.  Eventually, I got it working by creating a new relationship between 2 data sources and using columns for both sources for the table, which created the type of interaction I was after.  But Thanks anyway.
