01 hint after refresh
This post is also available in: Deutsch Many times, I’m creating a report in Power BI Desktop with data from a website.

I’m loading data in Power Query from the web and at one point I am publishing my report to the Power BI Service.

As a result, only those customers who have purchased both products should be displayed in a table.For such a case I need an AND logic for my slicer.
