Why measure cannot be filtered?

Dear all,

 

I have created a "Gross Profit %" measure that simply divide gross profit by cost. Then I would like to filter out all rows that has "GP%" > x% during year 2017. However the "GP% measure cannot be filtered.

 

Should I create a calculated column for this purpose? What will you guys do when trying to filter a aggregated value?

 

Thank you

@KeithChu would using the visual level filters work for you?

Hi Keith,

 

To filter by a measure, you need to use the FILTER function, so yours will look roughly like the following: 

 

Measure = CALCULATE([Gross Profit] / [Cost], FILTER(TABLE_NAME, [GP%] > x))

 

Hope that helps!
