Add extra column headers to table



In my report I am showing a lot of data in a table. To keep the oversight, I want to show extra column headers above the group of similar columns. I solved it with text boxes. But now my table is to big and I need to scroll to see all the columns. Hence, the text boxes don't work anymore. I already adjusted the page size and I cannot go any wider.


Does anyone know how I can create more oversight in this table with extra column headers?


This is how it looks like with text boxes:

You'd need to define a hierarchy and then you could use drill down (split arrows).

DAX is easy, CALCULATE makes DAX hard...

Hi All,


          I need to create a report that has header data and detail data.  Like a order or invoice type of format.  I need a section for the header data and a listing of all detail that applies with column headers.  Can  you tell me if this can be done with Power BI?  If so can  you kindly send me to link or source of how to do this?
