Slice by "count"

Hi there,

I have the following dax measure:
Users = SUM ( Table1[Users])

I’ve produced a table like so:
Department|Users
Depart_A | 91
Depart_B | 72
Depart_C | 68
Depart_E | 65
Depart_F | 1
Depart_G | 3
Depart_H | 2

I need a “Users” slicer where (similar to when slicing with a Date), I can slice for values greater than “n”. When I try to drag my Users measure onto a slicer visual, it simply adds up all my users.

I must be missing something very obvious. Could someone please provide me with some pointers?

Hi @michellepace.

Do you mean like this?

If so, just drag the [Users] column onto the canvas, make it a slicer, then choose [Greater than or equal to] from the drop-down in the upper-right corner of the slicer.

Hope this helps.

Hi Greg,

That is exactly what I need except my Users is a Dax measure… is it possible to filter by a Dax measure?

Hi @michellepace. AFAIK you can’t slice by a measure in Power BI at this time, unfortunately. You can, however, generate your own “lookup” table with your own values of interest by creating a new parameter using the “What If” option built-in to Power BI. For example,


You could then create a measure (say [Total Users]) and use the measure auto-generated by the use of the “What if” parameter dialog like

Total Users = 
CALCULATE( SUM( Users[Users] ),
    FILTER( Users, Users[Users] >= [User Counts Value] ) )

Hope this helps.
