## Filter table rows by conditional formatting value

Hello,

I have the following table where the remaining amount is flagged by colour according to the following rules:

1. If invoice amount is less than 50% of total value = green

2. If invoice amount is between 50% and 90% of total value = yellow

3. If invoice amount is 90% or higher of total value = red

I am using this measure as the conditional formatting of the "Remaining amount" column:

``````Icon flag =
VAR _Threshold =
DIVIDE ( [Invoice amount] , 'Table'[Total amount] )
RETURN
SWITCH ( TRUE (),
_Threshold < 0.5, 1,
_Threshold < 0.9, 2,
3 )``````

I am trying to make a slicer to filter the table rows according to the circle colours. Is that possible? Any help is much appreciated!

Try this

Create a pick list table

Aabd drag the RAG colour fields to the slicer

Create measure

RAG valid = IF([Icon flag] IN VALUES(RAGS[RAG ID]) ,1)

RAG valid = 1

@speedramps Thanks for your reply! It works. But i am wondering if it is possible to adapt this method to sort the rows based on the icon flag value or RAG ID, instead of filtering? If it is possible, then i will create another ticket for this question.
