Why ALLSELECTED(ALLEXCEPT ( ClientType, ClientType[FiscalYear] )) doesnt work?

I am trying to build the measure:


CALCULATE([Revenue] ,


                      ALLSELECTED(ALLEXCEPT ( ClientType, ClientType[FiscalYear] ))




Unfortunately ALLSELECTED is not allowed nested with an ALLEXCEPT.


  • I need the ALLSELECTED, so I can ignore the filter in the current query.


  • I need the ALLEXCEPT, because I need to ignore a filter from outside on another column, but I do want to preserve the outside filter on FiscalYear!


How can I achieve this?

Hi @ovonel 


It seems ALLEXCEPT is enough. It can remove filters except for the specified column filters. How about using below code?

    ALLEXCEPT ( ClientType, ClientType[FiscalYear] ),
    DATESYTD ( DATEADD ( 'Date'[Date], -1, YEAR ), "5/31" )

Based on your description

    DATESYTD( DATEADD( 'Date'[Date], -1, YEAR ), "5/31" ),
    ALLSELECTED( ClientType ),
    VALUES( ClientType[FiscalYear] )

Thanks to the great efforts by MS engineers to simplify syntax of DAX! Most beginners are SUCCESSFULLY MISLED to think that they could easily master DAX; but it turns out that the intricacy of the most frequently used RANKX() is beyond their comprehension!

DAX is simple, but NOT EASY!
