"Is Not" filter not working in Power BI desktop

I encountered a rather strange issue. I'm showing data for all managers in our organization and have got some measure that calculate the amount of currently active workers that report to those managers. For some reason if I filter on one manager, the data including the measures change to only that manager. But if I try to reverse the filter by selecting which manager I want to exclude, the filters won't work on all the measures. The measures are not filtered in advance, I wanted them to be dynamic. 


Maybe this is some random bug in Power BI, but if I did something wrong I would like to know. 


Thanks in advance!

Hi @mhouten,

Can you please share some dummy data or a pbix file with similar data structures and expected results? It should help us clarify your scenario and test to coding formula.

Hello @mhouten ,


can you show your measures, data model and explain how you "reverse" the filter?

I'm afraid with the current information it's a little difficult to support you.


Best regards
