FILTERS DAX Function (Table manipulation)

Returns a table of the filter values applied directly to the specified column.


FILTERS ( <ColumnName> )
Parameter Attributes Description

The column for which filter values are to be returned.

Return values

Table A table with a single column.

A column of unique values.


When FILTERS is evaluated in an expression grouped in SUMMARIZECOLUMNS the original filter could be lost and replaced by the result of the auto-exists behavior that combines all the filters on the same table into a single filter. The combined table resulting from this filter only contains columns explicitly listed in SUMMARIZECOLUMNS as grouping columns or filter columns.
