      Hi everyone,

      I have to filter the report based on a field which include multiple string values.

      like, wanted to see total sales.

      i want to create Filter on this City, Just by 2 Names, Like,


      XXX-------- Includes all the cities except Atlanta, Austin.

      YYY-------- Only Athens


      i wanted to see a filter either by Dropdown.

      Filter:----- XXX

               ----- YYY

          Hi Chandra,


          I recommend creating a parameter with two values ---- XXX and ----YYY.


          Then create a calculated field for filtering:

          CASE [Parameter Name]

               WHEN ----XXX THEN IIF([City]='Atlanta' OR [City]='Austin', 0, 1)

               WHEN ----YYY THEN IIF([City]='Athens', 1, 0)



          Then put this calculated field on your filters shelf and set the filter value on 1.


          Let me know if this helps you or answers your question.


          Kind regards,

              You can do something like this


              Create a set for your XXX excluding cities 'Atlanta' and 'Austin'.


              Create another set YYY for only 'Athens'.

              Create a string parameter as per below screen shot.

              Create a calculated field


              Drag this calculated field into filter shelf and select only 'True'.

              City Param ---> show parameter control

              If you select 'xxx' then only those cities will be list down except two.

              If you select 'yyy' then only Athens will be shown.


              I hope this is what you wanted.
