Data doesnt filter when ID is not in table

I got two excel sheets connected to each other in PowerBi by 'reference id'. They got the same reference ID. 
Anyways, when I want to filter the table, this is possible but only when I take the 'reference ID' into the table. When I got the 'reference ID' out it wont filter anymore. See picture below. Does anyone know how I could filter this table without getting the reference id with the table? Schermafbeelding 2022-03-10 160747.png

Hi @Anonymous ,


It is suggested to check your direction of the relationship.



The id is filtered in the slicer of the Table, and the id in Table (2) will not be filtered because of the direction of the filter.
