Exploring Power BI Filters are useful for exploring a particular field, or we can say, apply filters on reports at various levels. Let me show you how to create Drill through Filters in Power BI with an example.

How to create Drill through Filters in Power BI

To demonstrate the Power BI filter drill-through report, we will use the country hierarchy. See the Create Hierarchy article to understand the steps required to create a hierarchy.

As you can see in the following screenshot, we created a column chart, adding the country hierarchy in the fields of the Power BI axis. And added the Sales Amount as the Value field and the Order Quantity as Color Saturation.
