Filtering a Table based on two non-interacting slicers

Hello,

 

Is it possible to perform the following?

 

Dataset sample:

NameLetterNumber
Test1A1
Test2A1
Test3B3
Test4C2
Test5C4
Test6D5
Test7E6
Test8E7

 

***The request is such that when they filter the 'Letter' slicer = 'A' and 'Number' slicer = '7', they should see:

 

Expected Results:

NameLetterNumber
Test1A1
Test2A1
Test8E7

 

Is this possible?

Hi  @Rondel ,

 

If you want to consider using multiple selection, you can use the SELECTCOLUMNS() function:

SELECTCOLUMNS function (DAX) - DAX | Microsoft Learn

Flag =
var _select1=SELECTCOLUMNS('Letter_Slicer',"letter",'Letter_Slicer'[Letter])
var _select2=SELECTCOLUMNS('Number_Slicer',"number",'Number_Slicer'[Number])
return
IF(
    MAX('Table'[Letter]) IN _select1 || MAX('Table'[Number]) in _select2,1,0)

Hi @v-yangliu-msft ,

 

Seems that the filter doesn't work when doing multiple selection on just one of the columns:

You need to normalize these columns into their own dimension tables and then feed the slicers from those.

 

If you want to implement an "OR"  logic you need to do that via measures, and use the measures as visual filters.

Hi  @Rondel ,

 

 

Here are the steps you can follow:

1. Create calculated table.

Letter_Slicer =
 DISTINCT('Table'[Letter])
Number_Slicer =
DISTINCT('Table'[Number])

2. Create measure.

Flag =
var _select1=SELECTEDVALUE('Letter_Slicer'[Letter])
var _select2=SELECTEDVALUE('Number_Slicer'[Number])
return
IF(
    MAX('Table'[Letter]) = _select1 || MAX('Table'[Number]) = _select2,1,0)

3. Place [Flag]in Filters, set is=1, apply filter.

Thank you so much! 

How should I go about it if multi-selection was needed for the [Letter] or [Number] column?  Seems to not be able to work when trying multi-selection.
