Parameter Attributes Description

Return values

Scalar A single boolean value.

TRUE when ColumnName is being filtered directly, or when any column of TableName is being filtered directly.


A column is said to be filtered directly when the filter or filters apply over the column.
A column or table is said to be cross-filtered when a filter is applied to any column of the same table or in a related table.

ISFILTERED can check whether a column is being filtered directly or if any of the columns of the table is being filtered directly.

ISFILTERED supports a table argument since SSAS 2019 or Power BI April 2019. Former versions only support the column name argument.
