Sales by Category if Items fall under Multiple Categories

I Created a Dashboard using PowerBI and It is working fine.
I have Sales, Departments, Classes, Items and it is fine till now.
Now I want to add Categories to my Dashboard.
But the problem I am facing is one Item can fall under Multiple categories. ( Sample data shown below)
I am planning to Keep Category as a slicer in my Dashboard.

Can someone guide me on this, please?

Re: Sales by Category if Items fall under Multiple Categories

Hi @reddy421 

As tested, even one Item falls under Multiple categories, i can use "category" column in the slicer.


What expected result do you want?

Do you want the "category" to group based on the same item?


Best Regards

Re: Sales by Category if Items fall under Multiple Categories

I have a relationship between Item Dimension and the category dimension( on Item ID)
fyi.. In the pic shown below category is RA_UDA_V and Item Dimension is RA_DIM_ITEM_MASTER_V

But as soon as I drop the Category column to the table I am getting the below error.



I tried to put the Category in the Slicer but I don't see that getting reflected.
