power query

I have multiple tables I created using the Power Query tool.  All tables are based on data from a "Master Dataset".  I would like to be able to filter the Master Dataset using a scenario slicer and have all other tables in the workbook recalculate based on that filter.  

 

Thanks for any help on this!

Re: power query

Assuming your input is in a table format

 

(1) Convert "Master Dataset" into a table Insert...table...

(2) Click in table then Insert...Slicer...to add slicers; don't make any selections yet

(3) Add additional formula in blank column of table :

=(AGGREGATE(3, 5, [@Sales])>0)+0

replacing "Sales" with appropriate header row from your table

(3) Create powerquery based on that table, including the extra column

(4) add PowerQuery  filter that removes rows where extra column equals 1.  Those are the hidden rows that you filtered out of dataset. Example:

    #"Filtered Rows" = Table.SelectRows(#"Previous Step", each ([Column1] = 1))

(5) Base your output tables on the filtered input

(6) After changing any slicer values, re-caclcuate PowerQuery to reflect new data
