YEAR Segment Filter not working as expected when a particular measure is in the visual

Hi everyone,

I found some unexpected results using a YEAR filter in a very simple case. Here is the data table:

data.jpg

I defined 2 measures :
Total_Order = SUM(OrderBook[OrderValue])

Cumul =
   VAR CurrentTotal = SUM(OrderBook[OrderValue])
   RETURN

   CALCULATE(SUM(OrderBook[OrderValue]),

                      FILTER(ALLSELECTED(OrderBook[Supplier]), CALCULATE(SUM(OrderBook[OrderValue])) >= CurrentTotal))

 

Time Intelligence Auto Date/Time : is ACTIVATED (per default, on global and current file), allowing to use YEAR from date hierarchy.

Using the date visual filters :

With OrderDate=10/03/2022 and 15/08/2022 as expected, 2 rows
With Year=2022, it shows 4 rows, which is not what I expected (I expected only the 2 rows of 2022, so corresponding to supplier1 and supplier2). So strange !
But removing the measure "Cumul" from the visual, working as expected: 2 rows (behaving the same with either OrderDate or Year filter)

What is wrong ? Is there something with the measure "Cumul" or some PBI parameters which I am unaware of ?

Thanks for your lights.

Hi everyone, that's it. No worry that for such simple test case, a combination of hierachy YEAR filter and a measure provides weird results ? is there a website where I shall adress the point ?

Hi @paul_marcault ,

 

Looks like CurrentTotal in second measure will also be filtered by allselected() function, you could take a check.

Hi Jay, thanks for your reply. (you can play with the file which I made available for download)
To reply to your point: If CurrentTotal was applied ALLSELECTED, then the Cumul calculation would be wrong (it would be constant for each row and equal to the Sum of all OrderValue
and CurrentTotal is set to VAR outside the iteration where ALLSELECTED is used in FILTER(ALLSELECTED(OrderBook[Supplier]). But here the Cumul calculation are correct.

Just look at the difference when you use only the visual filter OrderDate=10/03/2022 and 15/08/2022
and compare when you use only the visual filter YEAR=2022. We shall expect the same results .
The case is so simple, but so strange indeed.
