Linechart filtering

I currently am working on a linechart wich needs to show the total sales in € per month of a specific order type.

It is pretty much working except the line chart shows the total sales amount of all the order types, eventhough i did put a filter on it which should filter it on one specific order type.

 

i hope someone has any idea on how i could solve this and make the linechart sum up all the sales of a specific order type per month.

Hi  @HesselHuisman,

I created some data:

Here are the steps you can follow:

1.Use Enter data to create a table.

2. Create measure.

slice_amount =
var _select=SELECTEDVALUE('Slicetable'[Slice])
return
IF(
    _select in {"A","B","C"},CALCULATE(SUM('Table'[Amount]),FILTER(ALL('Table'),'Table'[Month]=MAX('Table'[Month])&&'Table'[OrderType]=_select)),
    CALCULATE(SUM('Table'[Amount]),FILTER(ALL('Table'),'Table'[Month]=MAX('Table'[Month]))))

3. Result:

The slicer selects ALL to display the full monthly amount:

The slicer selects A and displays the monthly amount in A:

@HesselHuisman , Not very clear ,

1. you can use order type as legend

2. you can slicer or filter for order type

3. Create a measure with order type

example

calculate(sum(Table[Value]), filter(Table, Table[Order Type] = "ABC" ))

Sorry i'll put in some screenshots, that hopefully wil clarify the situation.

Please don't hate on my dashboard it is my first time using Power BI😂.

As you can see in the first printscreen, the table shows all the orders of the company, with the amount in € and the ordertype, in this situation the linechart is correct because it sums up all the orders that were sold per month. 

However, as you can see in the second printscreen, whenever i select ordertype 60 (which is the specific ordertype i want to show in the linechart) the table does filter out all the other order types. But the linechart stays exactly the same.

What i would like to see is that the line chart sums up all the orders with order type 60 per month.

i have already tried a lot but can't seem te figure out why it keeps showing all order types.

I hope this makes more sense😁
