Filters not syncing between tabs

Hello:

 

I am not able to sync my filters:

 

I have two tabs in my report. Left hand side report and right hand side report. 

 

I have managed to sync all filters except the one on the top (yellow highlight). Its doesnt let me make this relationship active. 

 

Its says "To make this relationship active, deactive or delete one of the relationship between [Top Table] and [Bottom Table]"

 

[Top Table] is the one on the very top. It says storeName

[Bottom Table] is one below the middle table. Its says "SYW"

 

When I filter "storeName" the table on the right hand side doesnt filter. I think its becuase its not an active relationship.

Hello,

 

the problem you have is not with the Sync Slicer functionality but with your data model.

You have circular dependencies here and will have a lot of problems with this data model.

 

Please make sure you watch this valuable video

and get rid of these many bidirectional relationships.

 

Here is a good explanation how to model your data.

Hi @samnaw 

Your problem may be that when you filter StoreName in Top Table, your left table show the wrong result due to inactive filter.

I build a sample to have a test.

Bottom:

Right:

Left:

Ex: If I select A in Store Name in Top.

Due to A in Right has SYW = x ,y, left table will be filtered by SYW. So it returns to A,B,C which has SYW =x/y it is in correct.

If you want to sync the filter in Top to left table, you may try to build a relationship as below.

Then result is correct.

Or you can delete relationships between all tables.

And build measure to achieve your goal.
