## filter using two columns

Hi,

We have a requirement to filter data based on two column values.

 contat Trade source Corporate Salesperson 123 \$     100 SMS Y Y 242 \$     200 ETF N Y 123 \$     300 PPM N Y 456 \$     400 DATABREAK Y N 789 \$     500 SMS Y Y 234 \$     600 ETF N Y 457 \$     700 PPM N Y 678 \$     800 DATABREAK Y N

Create a formula or parameter with Corporate and Salesperson names. When Corporate is selected, report should display all the “Y” values from the Corporate column and if “Salesperson” is selected all the “Y” values from Salesperson column should display.

report should use single slicer /parameter to filter the data.

it would probably make sense to calculate a new table to handle this. The table will have two columns, Corporate and SalesPerson :

Slicer Table =
UNION (
SELECTCOLUMNS (
FILTER( 'Table' , 'Table'[Corporate] <> BLANK() ) ,
"Source" , 'Table'[Source] ,
"Selection" , 'Table'[Corporate]
),
SELECTCOLUMNS (
FILTER ( 'Table' , 'Table'[Salesperson] <> BLANK() ) ,
"Source" , 'Table'[Source] ,
"Selection" , 'Table'[SalesPerson]
)
)
After this has been calculated, create a relationship between these tables, between the Source columns. Since this is purely for filtering the table on the person of interest, make it be Many-to-Many and have Slicer Table filter Table:

Create a slicer with the Selection column from the Slicer Table and test the functionality:

Good afternoon! I need to know the total amount I have of "Yes, "TRUE", "yes" in the RESTULT column. STATUS. For this, you need to filter the column, how? After that I need to use a measure to know the amount I have of "Yes, "TRUE", "yes".

Hi,

If you wish to count the Yes/true in the Result column, then write this measure

Measure = calculate(countrows(Data),Data[Result]="Yes"||Data[Result]="true")

My assumption is that true is text true (not a boolean true).

Hope this helps.

Requirment to use a single slicer option to filter the data.

Resolver I

Based on problem description it seems like Adding two slicers with these two column should solve the purpose. Am I missing something?

Thanks,
