This could be modelled by using
a Parameter (selected by User)
and a filter based on it.
Please find the attached as an example.
The scenario is as follows:
imagine Superstore shipments as of 2014-Dec-31
with all 2015 orders as ready to ship ones.
User would want to select any distinct Year (up to 2014) --
just a single selection, hence a Parameter --
and all open (aka 2015 by Ship Date) orders as well.
Hope this would be close to what you're trying to model.
