Slicer Management Options - Please Help!!!

I currently have a dimension table, representing all of my customers names and IDs over time.  It is joined with an output of customer transactions, with just the IDs.

 

I'd like my slicer to ONLY include customer names (from the Dim Table) with the matching IDs from the transacational data. 

 

In other words, I want to manage the slicer options away from including all of the options, and only those customer IDs that are in the main dataset.

 

All guidance is appreciated.

Hi @irnm8dn 

Try using LOOKUPVALUE DAX function. And then use the new column in your slicer.

Hi @irnm8dn 

Whats the issue then?
Create a slicer from the IDs on the main data table. It is straight forward...

It’s not the ID I need in the slicer. It is the associated customer name in the Dim Table. Problem is, that when I use the Customer Name field it shows all variables, not just those IDs that match the main data table.
