How to filter data by Account Name via an ID number

I have two separate data sources, one with financial data and the other with textual data. Each have an ID number that ties them together and I’ve connected them in my data model via the ID number. However, I’m filtering the data on my page by Account Name from the textual data source, of course the financial data doesn’t have the Account Name just the ID, which is not associated with the Account Names.
Is there a way in my visual table to only show the items where the ID is present in both data sources?

Thanks for any help.

@DDewbre,

I believe if both table are connected by and relationships are working fine, then you should not face the issue.

Can you please send some sample data along with the issue? In this way, we can see if there is any issue in the data model itself.

Kind Regards,
Hafiz

Hafiz,
thanks for responding! I’ve attached two Excel spreadsheets with the fields I’m talking about. In the data model I have a one-many relationship between Opportunity sample OPP-ID and Financials sample Opp-ID. But, I’m trying to filter the data in my visuals/page by Account which is only in Opportunity sample. Right now when I do that in a table I get all items.
Financials Sample.xlsx (16.1 KB) Opportunity Sample.xlsx (15.7 KB)

Hi @DDewbre. Can you please provide your work-in-progress PBIX file along with an Excel mock-up of a sample of exactly what you’re looking for?

@DDewbre The data you provided doesn’t contain the values that could be joined with a relationship. No matching fields in Financials with Opportunity Sample. The best way to get the solution is to show the mock up of your result preferably in PBIX file. It’s way easier to understand the problem and provide a solution when pbix file is provided.

Thanks.
