Hi Anitha,

  • To make filter to be dependent or be sensitive to other filters, toy must add them to context.
  • So the filter than you want to be used as primary filter, Right click on the field and add to context.
  • Now Add the remaining filters on to the sheet. 
  • To the filter than you want to be dependent on primary filter, Click on the filter and select show values in context.
  • Now 2 filters are dependent and the other is free and independent on primary filter.

Whenever a filter must be dependent, you must add it to context. On context, field would turn to grey. 

Hope this helps you.
