Hi @ahamdan,

=> Simply, I am trying to do P&L and I need it to be in the same format as I mentioned.

So did you mean that you want to make the Gross Profi and Gross Margin also in the same column with Cost and Revenue? If so, I'm afraid it cannot be achieved in Power BI.

You should know that Power BI is a data analytics tool. We can create a new calculated column or a measure to calculate value based on the source table. However it is not possible to insert the calculated value into the source table. This should be done at data source side.

Thanks,
Xi Jin.

sorry i need in column wise pls

Solution Sage

Hi @ahamdan,

Based on your sample data, the Revenue and Cost are in one same column. So is it true as they are truly in one same column?

If so, the formula for Gross Profi can be like this:

```Gross Profi =
CALCULATE ( MAX ( Test[Value] ), Test[Column] = "Revenue" )
- CALCULATE ( MAX ( Test[Value] ), Test[Column] = "Cost" )```

And Gross Margin can be:

```Gross Margin =
DIVIDE (
[Gross Profi],
CALCULATE ( MAX ( Test[Value] ), Test[Column] = "Revenue" )
)```

If the Revenue and Cost are came from other measures. Please don't be lazy to share use your acutal situation. Since we can't see your real data, it'll help us a lot to understand your requirement if you can share us your actual sample data and the measure formulas.

Thanks,
Xi Jin.
