## Whats the dax formula to support my scenario?

Let's say if I select option A and B from a smart filter. Imagine the selected options as a venn diagram. Intersection of A and B are common values but im not interested in this.

I need to find out the independent B (excluding the intersected part) if I select A.  Basically I would like to find out the gaps. The formula should be dynamic enough if I choose options A B C etc. Thanks 😊

Create measures using EXCEPT and use the method from the video to use as a Slicer.

@mkathi0405 - Not quite sure I understand. Seems like something like the Inverse Selector or Complex Selector:

If not, please first check if your issue is a common issue listed here: https://community.powerbi.com/t5/Community-Blog/Before-You-Post-Read-This/ba-p/1116882

Also, please see this post regarding How to Get Your Question Answered Quickly: https://community.powerbi.com/t5/Community-Blog/How-to-Get-Your-Question-Answered-Quickly/ba-p/38490

The most important parts are:
1. Sample data as text, use the table tool in the editing bar
2. Expected output from sample data
3. Explanation in words of how to get from 1. to 2.
