Selecting discrete values on filter shelves

It is very simple to select discrete values on the filter shelf for all data types: numerical, string, date, and so on.

For selecting discrete numbers in a filter, the example from building Cross tabulation is used, where several discrete years of the dataset World Life Expectancy are specified.

  1. On the Filters shelf, click the Down Arrow on the year field placed there earlier, then click Select values.
  2. In the Filter for year modal window, under the Values tab, select 1900, 1910, 1920, 1930, 1940, 1950, 1960, 1970, 1970, 1980, 1990, 2000, and 2010.
  3. Click APPLY.
    The cross tabulation visual appears with the years specified in the previous step.

    Alternatively, with numerical data, you can specify a range of numerical values. For more information, see Selecting a range of number values on filter shelves. You can also choose the desired combination of filters by specifying an expression. For more information, see Selecting values by using an expression on filter shelves.
