Bidirectional not filtering down stream



I have the below model, if I filter data in A, B, filters and so does C, but doesn't propogate through to D.



However If I select the data in B, it does in fact filter C and D.


A table



B table



C table



D table



C and D are partial, the 25th does exist in both tables.


Any ideas why when selecting the data in A, it doesn't propogate through to D, but selecting B, it does?

Relationships are correct - it works from B down.

Hi , @mickeysox 

According to your description, when you filter the field in Table A and it can not propogate through to D.

I test it in my side , this is the relationship and in my understand the Table A can filter the Table D in logic:



I test it in my side , when we filter the Table A field , it work in my side :
Before i filter the field in Table A:


When i filter the field in Table A :



So you can check if the field you put is right and if you still meet some issue , you can also share the sample .pbix file (without sensitive data) to me to test !



Thank you for your time and sharing, and thank you for your support and understanding of PowerBI!

First check the properties of each relationship and ensure the correct fields are linked and that they are of the same data type... ?
