How can I apply CROSSFILTER or similar method in this model to be able to filter a table?

I have been stuck on this modelling problem for last couple of days, I have my model currently setup like this,


relationship.PNGI want to filter SKU forecast table with the column Status from INOUTstatuses table. Both are connected to date table and item table with 1 to * relation. An excerpt of inout table looks liek this,


 Each sku has a status with a respective date. What I want to do is, add status column in the filter pane and selected a status for a respective year and it should show all the sku under those two conditions and measures and columns calcuated in forecast table should dynamically change. I cannot use bi-directional filter too in this case. Any help is much appreciated.

See if this works. Firts, the sample model

To filter Table 2 based on the selection in the filter from the Status table, create the follwoing measure:

Filter Table 2 =
IF (
    ISFILTERED ( 'Status Table'[Status] ),
        SUMMARIZE ( 'Table 1', 'Table 1'[Status], 'Dim Sku Code'[dSKU code] )

In the visual for Table 2, add the SKU field from the dimension table to the filter pane, select TopN as the filter, add the [Filter Table 2] measure and set the topn to 1:

Thanks, This look promising, however I've already looked into creating dynamic measure as a filter option, but the problem I have multiple pages and around 20 different visuals, so I need this status filter as a page level or report level one. Is it possible to modify this solution? I have pondered over it, but couldn't seem to think of a way a calculated column that is dynamic!


I cannot think of a way to make this workable at page/report level. If the solution needs to be dynamic, you are going to need to use a measure, and measures cannot be applied at page/report level filters
