Suppressing two columns from one columns values.

I have a matrix table set up with IF statements to identify suppression rules. What I need is both columns to be suppressed when column A is supressed. Below is screenshot of what I have vs what I need.

 

Any ideas?

 

What I have  
 Data Column AForAgainst
A971,750
B38532,203
C**1,234
D4587
E**7,024
   
   
What I need  
 Data Column AForAgainst
A971,750
B38532,203
C****
D4587
E****

 

Thanks!

Hi @Marvhall ,

Please have a try.

Create a meausre.

Measure = IF(MAX('Table'[For])="**","**",MAX('Table'[Against]))

Or a column.

Column =
VAR _1 =
    CONVERT ( 'Table'[Against], STRING )
RETURN
    IF ( 'Table'[For] = "**", "**", _1 )

@v-rongtiep-msft 

 

This works when the values are in their own column. See below for column make up.

What I am doing to get your solution is to reference the main table and select these columns, unvpivot Group A, then Pivot on Group A to get them into their own column headings.

 

Thoughts? or do you have a better solution?
