display all the rows of first column that were filtered by a second column

Column 1Column 2Flag
AB1
BC1
DA1
ED1

 

I have a table like this. I am able to filter the table by both the columns using a measure. For example, the output table for a filter on both columns 1 and 2 for 'B' looks like this 

Column 1Column 2 Flag
AB1
BC1

 

I want a visual that displays only Column 1 and Flag in a Matrix form. The visual I get at the moment 

 

Column 1 Flag
B1

 

However, I want my visual to look like below

 

Column 1Flag 
A1
B1

 

Can somebody please help?

Assuming you have a Disconnected Table with values in both Column 1 and Column 2. If you have that already, good, other wise, you can create that like with a New Calculated Table like this:

CombinedValues =
UNION(VALUES('MyTable'[Column1]), VALUES('MyTable'[Column2])). Rename the column created here as "Slice"

Add the column from your disconnected slicer to the Filters Pane.

Then create a Measure for your flag as below

FlagDisplay =
CALCULATE (
    SUM ( 'MyTable'[Flag] ),
    KEEPFILTERS (
        'MyTable'[Column1]
            IN VALUES ( CombinedValues[Slice] )
                || 'MyTable'[Column2] IN VALUES ( CombinedValues[Slice] )
    )
)

 

If this works for you, please mark it as a solution so it can be found easily by anyone who may have similar issues.

Hi,

 

In this case I suggest you use a calculated column with the following formula:

Flag = IF('Table'[Column 1] = "B" || 'Table'[Column 2] = "B", 1, BLANK())

After that, add a filter in the visual using this field set to 1.

that's what I have in the 2nd table. I want a visual table that doesn't include Column 2 but still gives me all rows filtered in Column 1

Yes, please try to follow my suggestion and don't add the second column, it will work 😊

yes but this is dynamic, I want it to filter based on a Slicer
