slicer with subset of a column

Hello,

 

I have a data of 4 columns of data types : date, string, int & float. string contains about 20 different items.

I need to insert a slicer that allows to select only a subset of those 20, about 6 of them. The remaining should not be seen or be accessible. And I would like to do that by adding a new column. If I should add or remove I would do that in the new column.

 

Please help.

Thanks Power BI community!

Hello @chari7595,

 

You can create a new column in your data model that identifies the subset of items you want to include in your slicer. E.g.

SlicerColumn = IF(
    OR(
        Table[ItemColumn] = "Item1",
        Table[ItemColumn] = "Item2",
        Table[ItemColumn] = "Item3",
        Table[ItemColumn] = "Item4",
        Table[ItemColumn] = "Item5",
        Table[ItemColumn] = "Item6"
    ),
    Table[ItemColumn],
    BLANK()
)

 

Should you have any questions or further assistance, please do not hesitate to reach out to me.

Thanks but i do have to ask this. What is the function of OR in the syntax ?

@chari7595 The OR function is checking to see if Table[ItemColumn] equals any of the items ("Item1", "Item2", "Item3", ....).

 

If Table[ItemColumn] matches any of these items, the OR function returns TRUE and the SlicerColumn will be assigned the value of Table[ItemColumn].
