Hi @SBC ,

 

Power Query filters can not be changed dynamically from the report side.

I think to achieve what you are asking, you have two main options:

 

1) Don't apply the filters in Power Query, just pass all the data to the data model/report then the end user can use a slicer to filter the values they want.

 

2) If the issus is with data quantity, you can use parameters in Power Query to provide the end user some control over the data that is loaded to the report:
