## Segmentation can filter another segmentation

Is possible for one segmentation filter to have options excluded or filtered from another segmentation filter?

Example:

1º segmentation filter
[x]A - [ ]B - [ ]C
2º segmentation filter
[disable]A - [x]B - [ ]C

3º segmentation filter
[disable]A - [disable]B - [x]C

Hi @Arthurfrc ,

First create tree tables for slicers:

Then apply measure [Flag for segmentation2] to segmentation2, [Flag for segmentation3] to segmentation3:

``````Flag for segmentation2 =
VAR _a =
SELECTCOLUMNS ( 'Table', "1", [segmentation] )
RETURN
IF (
ISFILTERED ( 'Table'[segmentation] )
&& MAX ( 'Table 2'[segmentation] ) IN _a,
0,
1
)

Flag for segmentation3 =
VAR _a =
SELECTCOLUMNS ( 'Table', "1", [segmentation] )
VAR _b =
SELECTCOLUMNS ( 'Table 2', "2", [segmentation] )
RETURN
SWITCH (
TRUE (),
ISFILTERED ( 'Table'[segmentation] ) && ISFILTERED ( 'Table 2'[segmentation] )
&& MAX ( 'Table 3'[segmentation] ) IN UNION ( _a, _b ), 0,
ISFILTERED ( 'Table'[segmentation] )
&& NOT ( ISFILTERED ( 'Table 2'[segmentation] ) )
&& MAX ( 'Table 3'[segmentation] ) IN _a, 0,
NOT ( ISFILTERED ( 'Table'[segmentation] ) )
&& ISFILTERED ( 'Table 2'[segmentation] )
&& MAX ( 'Table 3'[segmentation] ) IN _b, 0,
1
)
``````

Hi @Arthurfrc ,

This cannot be achieved using just one table, because when you use only one table, the three slicers you create cannot be selected independently without being affected.

I wanna try something with my noob drawing in paint.

'A, B and C' are options in my segmentation 1,
each time I choose one of them , in next segmentations (2 & 3)
this option need to disappear.

Now this did any sense?😅

Great, thanks, it is what I was searching to my BI.

Just for curiosity... does this work with just one table or do I really need to copy the table to as many different options as I need??
