Measure should take into account 2 of 3 report filters

Hello all,

I have the following problem. I am trying to create a measure that takes into account 2 of my report filters (date and category) and not a third one (product). The goal is to calculate an average value.

 

I have already tried different solutions by combinations with FILTER, ALL, ALLEXCEPT, KEEPFILTER, SELECTEDVALUE, but unfortunately I haven't found a solution yet. Do you have any ideas?

 

Best regards, Philip!

HI @PhiBu,

I think you can try to write a measure expression to use 'OR' logic to link two filters and apply it to raw table records(you can use the 'all' function to ignore original filter effects at first). 

Measure =
VAR _filter1 =
    VALUES ( Table1[Column1] )
VAR _fitler2 =
    VALUES ( Table2[Column2] )
RETURN
    CALCULATE (
        SUM ( Fact[Amount] ),
        FILTER ( ALL ( Fact ), [column1] IN _filter1 || [column2] IN _filter2 )
    )

Then you can use this on visuals to enable the filter effects.

Notice: for custom filter effects, you need to use unconnected table fields as the filter source.

@Jihwan_Kim thank you for your idea. 

Unfortunately, I haven't found a solution yet or don't know how to use the RemoveFilters function correctly. I have therefore created an example file. But I am not able to attache the file. Therefor I have the following screenshots.

Could you take a look at it and give me a tip on how to create the measure? That would be great.

Best regards, 
Philip

Could you try the following measure and check if works?

 

NewMeasure = CALCULATE ( measure, ALL(Product))

@sayaliredij Thanks for your reply. But I think the ALL function is not the function I need. Maybe in addition to another function.  I described the measure I want to create in more detail above. If you still want to support me :). 

Best regards, Philip
