Filtering a slicer (no relationship_

Hi,

 

Looking for some help to see if this can be done. Conceptually, I need to filter a dimension table based on a selection on another dimension table. These two tables are unable to be linked together as one of relationships will be made inactive.

 

In the PBIX example attached, I want the Location slicer selection to filter the Salesperson slicer and show only the 5 salespersons that are in that location.

 

Example PBIX file 

1 ACCEPTED SOLUTION

Thanks @Jihwan_Kim 

 

That would be an acceptable solution if I am trying to find salespeople with sales, the slicer should show users filtered by location.

 

I found the solution in another post and I have updated the PBIX - Filtering a slicer example 

 

DAX used

Location Filters Users =
IF (
    MAX ( 'Salespeople'[Location] )
        IN VALUES ( 'Sales Location'[SalesLocation] ),
    1,
    0
)

Hi,

Please check the below picture and the attached pbix file.

 

1. create a measure like below.

filter name by location: =
IF ( COUNTROWS ( VALUES ( Sales[Value] ) ) > 0, 1, 0 )
2. Put this measure into the Filterpane "Filter on this visual"
3. configure like the picture.

Hi @parry2k ,

 

Thanks for the video link. I couldn't work out how to utilise the CROSSFILTER function in my example, but I found another post that had the correct solution.

@DarrenLau sounds good. Thanks for the update. Best!
