Hi @WTAS80486 ,

As a workaround, you can turn off "Stepped layout" and turn on "+/- icons" under Row headers pane for a Matrix visual.


If I have misunderstood your meaning, please provide more details with your desired output and pbix file without privacy information.

Is this what you are asking? The columns don't show until drilled down into. Stepped layout is on. I hope this helps~! 






I want to remove description at highest level but keep at lower levels

Remove here, this FC-C-1120 is a text column(Description)not measure


But display it only after clicking + icon



In INSCOPE function 


if(isinscope(Table[Level 2]), [Measure], Blank())

@WTAS80486 , you can make it blank using isinsope


if(isinscope(Table[Level 2]), [Measure], Blank())



IsInScope - Switch data at different levels:


@amitchandak It is working for measure but what if I have to return a column text (Description)at drill down level
