Slicer that filters two columns

Hello, 

 

Screenshot 2022-07-04 163203.png

 

I have a table with the column month numbers (which is connected/related with my main fact table) and two calculated columns YTD and FY. Now i want to creATE a slicer that has two options: Year to date (YTD) and Full year (FY). My problem is that the slicer options are from two columns and i dont know how to handle that. I have read an article form sqlbi "Creating a slicer that filters multiple columns in Power BI - SQLBI" but i didnt help me further.

 

help is much appreciated. Thank you 🙂

Thank you very much for your help @amitchandak 

I tried to follow your suggestion but i dont really get your solution. Why sould i create a measure when you can't put a measure in a slicer?

With "Slicer[value]" in your measure do you refer to the column of the new table (with the two row values "Year to 

date", "Full Year")?

@Anonymous , Have a new table with two row values "Year to date", "Full Year"

 

then have a measure like

 

measure =

var _filter =

Switch( selectedvalue(slicer[value])

"Year to date",filter(Table, not(isblank([Year to date])) )

"Full Year",filter(Table, not(isblank([Full Year])) )

)

return

calculate(sum(Table[Value]), _filter)
