Power BI – Report Builder using Multi Value Parameters in DAX

How to create a Multi Value Parameter Report in Power BI Report Builder

You can download PBI Report Builder here

This builder looks very familiar to the SSRS Report Builder you are used to from MS Reporting Services

Building a single value parameter in DAX is easy.

But creating a Multi Value Parameter requires quite some steps …


Solution :

These are the steps to follow :

1. Create a Data Set with the SLICER value in PBI Desktop

2. Copy the PBI Query

Run the Performance Analyzer in PBI Desktop


Start Recording and Refresh


Copy the Query to the Main Data Set


And apply the Filters in the next step …

3. Create new Parameter referencing to the Main Data Set Query Filter

To create a Parameter in the RBI Report Builder you first have to create a new Data Set


The same way go to the Performance Analyzer and copy the Query from the corresponding Slicer


And add it to the Filter Data Set and test the DAX.


3. Create a PBI Report Builder Report Parameter


Select the values from the Parameter Data Set created earlier


4. Add a Parameter in the Main Sales Data Set


 Add the @xxx Report Parameter variable in the DAX Query

Run the report and test the Report Parameters


Enjoy !!
