Show when either or both columns are greater than a value

Hello, 

 

I have two columns with different values and I am trying to filter it so that I can only see the rows when the amount of both or either is greater than 5000. 

I am trying to create a slicer or a visual filter. 

 

For example on the following table, I just want to see the rows in green. 

 

CreditDebit
05500
10000
60000
50005000
03000

 

Basically, if the sum of both is greater than 5000 then I just want to see those value. 

I have a calculated column with the sum of the debit and credits. I have tried filtering it so that I have values >5000 but it gives me back wrong info.

Hello @Anonymous,

 I think this is what you are trying to do. 

 

if you have your graph and simply create a third calculated column with this line:

 

result = IF(Table1[credit] + Table1[debt] >= 5000 , true,false)
(this take the sum of the two columns and if there = or greater than, it returns true. else returns false
 
next creat a slicer and put this result column into the slicer. i have pictures here. 
 
let me know if you have any questions, hope it helps.

not exactly sure what you mean, but if you mean like multiple tables of credit and debit columns, i would concider merging the columns,  if you mean adding more columns or data, like many savings for example, you would just add more measures to the slicer

 

if you need more help on this, i would suggest creating a new question so it does not give mixed results for this posted question.

hope this helps. 

 

best regards,

It worked, thanks!

 

Question: 

I want to do this for multiple tables and values. Would I need to create a new column/measure for each new value?
