Slicer to filter chart using DAX

Hi all,

I'm trying to create a chart to return net actual vs budget chart using fields in multiple tables.


Table 1:

Table 2:

Table 3:

Table1(Mapping) - Table 3(ExecutivePL)

Table 3(Mapping Key) - Table2(Mapping Key)


I have created a DAX measure to returns net actual:

Actual Net Result =
    SUM('Table 2'[Value]),
    'Table 2'[Header]="Actual"
How do I filter measure to show Net Actual for Table1 [Line item]? So chart returns only sum of actuals for e.g Utilities when selected. Thanks.

It should work

Thank you for the prompt response. I assumed that the chart should filter if slicer is added but that hasn't been the case.

there is no direct relationshipship between table 1 and table 3. It is worth mentioning that carries data labels, table 2 is a mapping table and table 3 holds all the data (fact table)- this is a new project and I just recently took over. 

To simplify my request, i will attach a screenshot of how i will like my output to look.

@beeEc009 , If table 1 is on the one side of the join, you should be simply able display this measure and column from table 1


In case of other join is should also work


If this does not help
Can you share sample data and sample output in table format? Or a sample pbix after removing sensitive data.
