Creating a filter in Analyze in Excell

Hello PBI Community 

Good Day!


This scenario is based on sample data


What Is trying to accomplish:

I need to create a measure/ filter that will allow me to filter out different transaction types within matrix in Analyze in Excel

Per this scernario - transaction type Timing 


Background and Examples below

I created a matrix in Power BI

Here it was very easy to create a filter for my transaction type

****Screen Shot 1****





Here are my measures

Total Sales = CALCULATE(SUM('SnR'[SnR Amount]), 'SnR'[Transaction Type] = "Sales" || 'SnR'[Transaction Type] = "Timing")
Total Revenue = CALCULATE(SUM('SnR'[SnR Amount]), 'SnR'[Transaction Type] = "Revenue" || 'SnR'[Transaction Type] = "Timing")
SnR Amount = [Total Revenue]+[Total Sales]

****Screen Shot 2****

To created the same matrix  in Analyze in Excel 

I had to create measures to get the same I created in Power BI.



****Screen Shot 3****

If I move transaction type into my matrix here the numbers duplicate.



Please advise if any additional questions.

I also have a sample .pbix, if needed

Much appreciate your time!

Thank you
