Cross-table filter

Good morning

I have two tables:

- One of them contains a single column with names (namesT)

- The other table (data) has more data and among them a column with more than one name per column (name).

I would like to know how I can make a filter so that by selecting a value from the table (namesT), it takes out all the rows of the table (data) that contain that information.

Hi @Syndicate_Admin ,

 

I suggest you to Split Column in Power Query Editor.

My Sample:

I add an index column and then split [NameT] column by comma,

vrzhoumsft_1-1683709067145.png

I suggest you to remove or inactive the relationship between two tables.

Filter Measure =
VAR _SELECTVALUE =
    VALUES ( 'Table'[NameT] )
VAR _Counttable1 =
    COUNTROWS ( _SELECTVALUE )
VAR _Counttable2 =
    CALCULATE (
        COUNTROWS ( 'Table (2)' ),
        FILTER ( 'Table (2)', [NameT] IN _SELECTVALUE )
    )
RETURN
    IF ( _Counttable1 = _Counttable2, 1, 0 )

Add this measure into visual level filter and set it to show items when value =1.

A relationship already exists, and it doesn't work.

The contents of the T-names table would be as follows:

Nerea
Pedro
Jaime
Silvia
Juan

And the name cell of the data table would look like this:

Juan,Silvia

It should work if you create relationship between tables (namesT and data)
