Dear all , 

@nickyvv  @amitchandak 

Assume , i published a report  and there is one page in my report which contains date slicer and 1 drop down list .

is it possible to give a load button on that report so that every time when some user select date slicer and selects a value from drop down and presses load button , it will load  filtered data from Database ,and will populate in an empty table which i have already created in my model?

Hi @Sujit_Thakur ,

 

If you use Import mode to get data, when you apply filters by the Slicer Apply button enabled in Options and settings page,  it will only refresh the visuals of report, and have no effect for the empty tables in the data model.

 

If you use DirectQuery mode,  when you apply filters by the Slicer Apply button , no data is imported or copied into Power BI Desktop. For relational sources, the selected tables and columns appear in the Fields list. For multi-dimensional sources like SAP Business Warehouse, the dimensions and measures of the selected cube appear in the Fields list. As you create or interact with a visualization, Power BI Desktop queries the underlying data source, so you’re always viewing current data.

 

Many data modeling and data transformations are available when using DirectQuery, though with some limitations. When you create or interact with a visualization, you must query the underlying source. The time that's needed to refresh the visualization depends on the performance of the underlying data source. When the data needed to service the request has recently been requested, Power BI Desktop uses recent data to reduce the required time to show the visualization. If you select Refresh from the Home ribbon, all visualizations are refreshed with current data.

 

Best Regards,

Amy

@Sujit_Thakur  - Yes, File | Options and settings | Options | CURRENT FILE | Query Reduction | Slicers | Add an Apply button...

@Sujit_Thakur - I suppose if you are using DirectQuery it would essentially act that way. But that technique is for refreshing visualizations, not refreshing the data model. If you want to select a bunch of stuff in slicers and then hit a button and have that kick off a refresh that loads (imports) data into a table, well, I can tell you that you are currently SOL.

Dear Sir ,
Will it populate data into empty table in my model in a published report , according to slicer and other drop down list filter ?
