## How to make a slicer with variables to be used in other column formulas?

Need help on below concern. I have below measure formula and is working well however I want to change a part of it.

Measure=
CALCULATE(
SUM(Table1[values]),
FILTER(
ALL(Table2),
Table2[%values]>0.90
)
)

I want to make a slicer from 10 to 100% and whatever is chosen from that slicer would be used as the value for ">" instead of having a fixed value of 0.90.

Any idea how I can make this slicer and use whatever is set to be the value used instead of 0.90.

Hey @burrito ,

you should create a new and not connected table with the percentages that you want to use in the slicer.

This column you use as a slicer. Then you can use SELECTEDVALUE to get the value from the slicer.

The adapted function would look like this:

``````Measure =
VAR _SelectedSlicer = SELECTEDVALUE ( SlicerTable[Percentage], 0.9 )
RETURN
CALCULATE (
SUM ( Table1[values] ),
FILTER ( ALL ( Table2 ), Table2[%values] > _SelectedSlicer )
)
``````

If you need any help please let me know.

Hi , @burrito

Firstly, you can create a calculated table as follows.

``slicer table = VALUES('Table'[%values])``

And you can create a measure as follows.

``>selectedvalue = IF(SELECTEDVALUE('Table'[%values]) > SELECTEDVALUE('slicer table'[%values]), 1 , 0)``

Then put the measure into the filter so that the visual only shows data where the measure is equal to 1.

Is this the result you expect?

Hi @selimovd , I tried your recommendation and it still gave me what I got from my previous formula. I created a new table with 1 column only, I put 10-100%. I then created the function you suggested to use selected value. However, the data on the new measure still produce the same result even after adjusting the slicer in the visual.

Must the 0.9 be retained for below formula?

Hey @burrito ,

no, the "0.9" in SELECTEDVALUE is the alternative result, in case you didn't choose anything in the slicer.

Can you share a demo file? Usually it should work.

Best regards
