Removing all filters except one

Hi all,


I'm sorry if this is a basic question, however I'm new to DAX and still only just getting my mind around it...


I have a series of report pages with different filters on them, as follows:

PAGE1 -> Production[date] = Today()

PAGE2 -> Production[date] = Today(), Production[line] = 1

PAGE3 ->Production[date] = Today(), Production[line] = 2


I have visual displaying a summary measure, for which I'd like to remove all filters EXCEPT the line filter, however I cannot make this work.

At the moment, my measures are as follows:


Total Output := SUM( Production[output] )

Yesterday Output = CALCULATE(
    [Total Output],
    Production[date] = Today() - 1,
    ALLEXCEPT(Production, Production[line])

From everything I've read, I believed ALLEXCEPT would remove everything except the Production[line] filter, however the measure is returning blank when the page date filter is applied.


Any help would be appreciated!

Hi @rmcmun 

Please check whether there is a value in the 'output' in line you filtered in page filter.

If there is a value in 'output' in the line you filtered, it won't shown blank.

You can try my measure as well, it works well in my sample:

Yesterday Output = 
VAR Line = VALUES(Production[Line])
    [Total Output],
    FILTER(ALL(Production),Production[Line] in Line&&Production[Date]=[Today]-1)

If this reply still couldn't help you solve your problem, please share a sample without sensitive data with me by your Onedrive for Business. And show me a screenshot of your issue and the result you want. This may make it easier for me to understand your requirement.


Best Regards,

Hi @rmcmun 

I can't reproduce your issue with my sample data set.  Can you please provie your PBIX file.


Download my sample PBIX file if you want to check it out.


As you can see from this data I can create measures for Total Output and Yesterday Output that return the correct values

@rmcmun Are you filters on the pages in the filter pane? You could try to filter each page with a slicer instead to get your ALLEXCEPT to work, instead of using the filter pane.
