    Power Pivot - filter in the data model does not apply itself into the pivot table

    Hi,

    Have a data sheet connected in the power pivot. When I manage the data (Power Pivot - Manage) I filtered the data by 2 columns and I want only specific attributes to be shown and calculated in the pivot table.

    I have saved and refreshed but the data in the pivot table is still pulled in 100%, compleately disregarding the filter.

    How can I get the filter to work?

    Thanks for the help!

    We may need to see the workbook for this.

    The filters you're applying in the PowerPivot window only affect what is displayed, in the Power Pivot window. They don't affect what data is returned to the Data Model.

    Filters that reduce the amount of imported data are applied only during import operations. You can’t add filters after the data is already imported and then refresh to get smaller rowsets.

    Filters that control which data is displayed in Excel or in Power Pivot are easily applied at any time. Notice that filtering an existing dataset doesn’t change the data that’s in the workbook—just the data that’s displayed. So if file size is a concern, filtering the data as you import results in a smaller workbook.
    In your example case, instead of loading your data directly into PowerPivot from the table, use PowerQuery to apply the filters you want, and then Load To Data Model:

    If I give you Power Query (Get & Transform Data) code, and you don't know what to do with it, then CLICK HERE
