Hi @Ahmed_Gamal ,

 

I think your table maybe like this:

Please create two new columns:

 

 

G/L = SWITCH(
    TRUE(),
    'Table'[Cost] < 0 && 'Table'[Journal Name] = 1, "G",
    'Table'[Cost] > 0 && 'Table'[Journal Name] = 1, "L")

New_percent = IF('Table'[Percent] <> BLANK(), 'Table'[Percent]*100 & "%")

Create a new table:

 

Table 2 = 
UNION(
    SELECTCOLUMNS('Table',"Journal Name",[Journal Name],"Group Name",[Group Name],"Type","Cost","Value",[Cost]),
    SELECTCOLUMNS('Table',"Journal Name",[Journal Name],"Group Name",[Group Name],"Type","Percent","Value",[New_percent]),
    SELECTCOLUMNS('Table',"Journal Name",[Journal Name],"Group Name",[Group Name],"Type","G/L","Value",[G/L])
)

 

 

You will get a new table like this. Please note: the type of value column is text.

Hi @Ahmed_Gamal ,

you can use the conditional formatting on a measure  ( green if gain, red if loss) and maybe putting the journal name in the row, not in the column.

header of multiple layers and merged cells are really not friendly to data analysis. what is your expected result?

i want a (gain or lose by if function) for the first coulmn only according to the cost value.
