Hi @Patv ,


Did you try to drag the Year ID column to a Slicer visual ? Slicers are a great choice when you want to:

  • Display commonly used or important filters on the report canvas for easier access.
  • Make it easier to see the current filtered state without having to open a drop-down list.
  • Filter by columns that are unneeded and hidden in the data tables.
  • Create more focused reports by putting slicers next to important visuals.

Power BI slicers don't support:

  • Input fields
  • Drill-down options
