filtering on matrix with nested rows

Hey guys,

 

I have following table:

ThomasBruneel_0-1649855097642.png

I have a matrix and filter with the following structure:

ThomasBruneel_1-1649855199779.png

Now I want to get the following when filtering on category "0" and "2", namely only the records for project "b" and "c" should be visisble.

When I check those filters now I get the following:

ThomasBruneel_2-1649855732153.png

But I don't want to see the records/tab for project "a" because there is no record with project "a" and category "2"

Can someone help?

See if this works for you.

First the model:

Create a measure to use as a filter in the filter pane for the matrix as follows:

FILTER =
VAR DcatRows =
    COUNTROWS ( ALLSELECTED ( DCategory ) )
VAR NotFiltered =
    DISTINCTCOUNT ( 'Table'[project] )
VAR _Rows =
    CALCULATE ( COUNTROWS ( DCategory ), ALL ( 'Table' ) )
RETURN
    IF (
        DcatRows
            = CALCULATE ( COUNT ( 'Table'[project] ), ALLSELECTED ( DCategory[dcategory] ) ),
        1,
        IF ( _Rows <> DcatRows, BLANK (), NotFiltered )
    )

Create the matrix with the rows from the dimension tables, a simple SUM for the values, and add the [FILTER] measure to the filters in the filter pane and set the value to 1:

Thank you Paul. This works for me.

One small remark, can I get rid of the Dproject table since it doesn't exist in the filter measure declaration.

 

You can in principle, though setting up the model with dimension tables (such as Dproject) is recommended and considered a best practice since it makes the model more efficient.

Hey Paul,

I have only one problem when a project has multiple records with the same category the filter doens't work. This is demonstrated in the screenshot beneath:

Is their a solution for this issue?

@ThomasBruneel , Try a measure like

 

measure =
var _cnt = countx(allselected(Category), Category[Category])
return
Sumx(filter(Addcolumns(summarize(Table, [project], [Category]), "_1", [result], "_2", countX(filter(allselected(Table), [project] =max([project])), [Category])), [_2] =_cnt),[_1])

 

 

You might have use distinctcount
