parameters filtering

Hi All,

I had a question about parameters.

 

Suppose I have a table in PQ with the names and age. I make two parameters to filter on name and age through Excel cells.

How can I change the parameter so that I can have all the names when I only want to filter on the age column (or the other way around: just filter on name and not filter on age)?

 

Currently, there has to be a value otherwise I am getting an error message.

 

Thanks,

 

Naveen

Hi @naveen73 ,

Try unchecking required box when creating the parameter:

vcgaomsft_0-1697594896635.png

Then modify the filter query, like:

vcgaomsft_1-1697594961745.png

Returns true when a null value is passed as a parameter.
