How to mimic a sql IN query using powerbi on a SSAS cube

Hi all.

i am trying to mimic some kind of set filtering. In sql is is very easy, but i am using a SSAS cube.
I would like to mimic this in powerbi

In the below query, i first determine which customers have an aggregated sales amount of over 1000. Then just for those customers, i need to list their name and country

select CustomerID, CustomerName, CustomerCountry
from CustomerTable
where customerID in ( select customerID
                                    from SalesTable
                                    group by CustomerID
                                    having sum(SalesAmount) > 1000


How to achieve this?

@MarcoDekker  Create a new table using SUMMERIZE

New Table = SUMMERIZE(Table, Table[CustomerID],Table[CustomerName],Table[CustomerCountry],"Amount" SUM(SalesAmount)>1000))


Don't forget to give thumbs up and accept this as a solution if it helped you!!!

Please take a quick glance at newly created dashboards : Restaurant Management Dashboard , HR Analytics Report , Hotel Management Report, Sales Analysis Report , and Fortune 500 Companies Analysis

Hi @Tahreem24 . Thanks for this suggestion.

We use a SSAS cube provided by a supplier. I can use Dax allright when creating measures in a PBI report, but no columss or tables. So i am unable to use the summerize feature.

regards, Marco
