Passing a slicer value to a query parameter


I need to pass a slicer value to a query parameter.

I created a query parameter named (LanguageParam) and filter my table name (Data) using this parameter. I created a slicer name (Selectlangauge) that takes a single value (“en” for English, “fr” for French) and I want to pass the selected slicer value to the query parameter (LanguageParam).

I tried using the Bind Parameter feature but it is missing from the Model View. Is there any alternative solution?

Hi, @afkhalifeh 

You can follow the official tutorial below to create a query query and bind them in a visual:

If you need to read items selected by the slicer, you can use the SeletedValue or SeletedColumn functions. For more information, please click on the following links to learn:

Thank you for your kind reply.


You can download the .pbix file from this link


As you see, I need to filter the data based on the selected language but the filter didn't work fine.

Hi, @afkhalifeh 

Can you elaborate on the output you are looking forward to in terms of the sample file you provided? In the provided PBIX file, it now has the same data regardless of the language selected, because there is no corresponding language ID in this table V_Respondents.

I need to change the x-axis in the Column Char based on the selected language. For example, if I select English from the slicer, the Name from V_GovernorateDetail must be English, and the same if I choose Arabic as shown in the screenshots below.
