cross filtering

Hello, could anyone explain to me how cross filtering works? Some use case could help me.

I already read the explanation from Microsoft, however, I did not understand.

If you mean the single/both direction, Check

 

4 tables in excel.

Load them to Power BI desktop and create relationship with cross filter single/both direction.

Then check how the direction works among visuals.

When filtering the left tables, the right tables are filtered.

Hi @Eric_Zhang 

 

A really well explained example.


In your last sample you mentioned above “When filtering the right tables. Only the left table in a both direction is filtered.”
Is there any way of setting up a relationship where if you filter either the left OR the right table then filtering is applied to its oppisite table, equivalent to an inner join?
