Filter Pie chart based on disconnected date table

Hi Community,

 

I have the following Pbix file:

https://www.dropbox.com/scl/fi/abmejaz39t7g6xro9z5d1/Test.pbix?rlkey=yv4pq8igcv8jw9jouovh55n5u&dl=0

 

I have a disconnected date table called PIDate which I use together with a filter Piname to select rows from the fact table (which is displayed in the table visual) based on the time frame in the PIDate. This works great together with a measure I have added to the table visual:

IsActiveMeasure =
SUMX (
    PIDate,
    SWITCH (
        TRUE (),
        MIN ( DimDate[Date]) >= MIN (PIDate[startdate])
            && MIN ( DimDate[Date] ) <= MAX(PIDate[enddate]) , 1,
        MAX ( DimDate[Date]) >= MIN ( PIDate[startdate])
            && MAX ( DimDate[Date]) <= MAX ( PIDate[enddate] ), 1
    )
)

I also have a main date table called DimDate, which relates to the fact table.

 

My main issue is that the pie chart does not get filtered based on the time frame from the PiDate when I select from the Piname filter. I have also tried writing a similar dax and applying it to the pie chart visual, but it doesn't work. How can I filter the pie chart based on the Piname filter. Your help is much appreciated.

Hi @Anonymous ,

Consider creating a virtual table and using it to iteratively sum.
For example:

Skipped 2 = 
SUMX (
    FILTER (
        SUMMARIZE (
            'Fact',
            'Fact'[tsexecutionid],
            "filtervalue", [IsActiveMeasure],
            "skipped", SUM ( 'Fact'[skipped] )
        ),
        [filtervalue] = 1
    ),
    [skipped]
)

Output:

Thanks @v-cgao-msft it works great, I never thought of that 🙂

 

I just adjusted it a bit to show all the data if nothing is selected, I hope that you agree 🙂

 

Skipped 2 = IF(SELECTEDVALUE(PIDate[id]),
SUMX (
    FILTER (
        SUMMARIZE (
            'Fact',
            'Fact'[tsexecutionid],
            "filtervalue", [IsActiveMeasure],
            "skipped", SUM ( 'Fact'[skipped] )
        ),
        [filtervalue] = 1
    ),
    [skipped]
),[skip])

Hi @Anonymous ,

You can use USERELATIONSHIP() DAX to get the operation done if the tables are connected without actually connecting the tables.

 

This requires an inactive relationship to be present between the tables. Although this looks like the tables are connected, the join doesn't work unless you use the earlier said DAX funcrton
