Text Filter for Multiple Tables

Friends,

 

I have a column "awardfy". It is in each table for of my top sponsors, DoD, NSF, NIH etc. I have a cross analysis page where I would like to be able to filter by that awardfy (its a text column). That way I can come departments by award totals by year

 

Thank you!

Hi @jxp73 ,

First of all, let me describe my understanding .

You have multiple tables, each of which has the same column "awardfy".

Now you want to use the column “awardfy”  as a filter.

What you want to calculate is “award total for each department for year”.
Is that right?

This is my replicated data model, but I still don't understand the relationship between your filter column “awardfy”   and the formula you're asking for.
So please give me a sample data model, and it would be nice to show me the result what you ultimately want to achieve.
