    Only display pivot table items that meet ALL selected slicer criteria?

    I've been looking for several hours, and am unsure if this is possible. For a call center report, I am looking for a way to display items in a pivot table only if ALL criteria selected in the slicer are met. For example, we have several incoming lines that we'll call A thru Z - I want to be able to see everyone that takes calls on line A, B and C (or any other combination) combined, but when selecting them in the slicer now I may retrieve employees that have line A but not B or C. Is this possible?

    Thank you in advance for any advice you can provide

    I'd recommend uploading sample workbook (with desensitized info). See yellow banner at the top.

    Pivot Table behavior will largely depend on underlying data structure (be it Excel range, Data Model etc).

    From your description, I'd guess that you'll need to denormalize your data to change behavior.
    And/or create dimension tables with one to many relationship to the fact table.

    No problem! I've uploaded a redacted workbook. As a simple example - a data table sheet and a pivot sheet. I've selected skills 1, 3 and 5 as an example. Although there are only 2 specialists with the Skill 5 line, 4 specialists display.

    This is a very small example. This is for a contact center of 300+ employees with approximately 50 different skillsets that employees can be trained to field calls on.

    Thank you again in advance for any help.

    Ok, so you don't need to restructure your data. But you need creative use of DAX formula.

    Do you have access to PowerPivot? If not, I can't think of ways to do it off top of my head, using Pivot Table.

    If using PowerPivot you will need to add following measures.

    4. Add [Validation] to Values field.

    With Skill 2, 3, & 4 selected. Result will look like below.

    If you need other values returned in this manner, you'll need to replace 1 in [Validation] with appropriate DAX measure.

    Oh, just realized I could have avoided use of iterator function COUNTAX().

    You can replace it with COUNTROWS(ALLSELECTED(Table1[Skill]))
