Changing formatting of subtotal

Hi everyone,


I am struggling since couple of days to find a solution to a following problem:

I have a matrix in power BI report that shows me costs per deparment. I have activated subtoals (both for rows and for columns). I marked in yellow row subtotal, in black circle there is raw grand total and the blue column is a column grand total. What I would like to achieve is to exclude from showing the value marked in red circle, namely the total of grand row total.



Is there a way to do that? In my project this value makes no sense due to structure of the matrix and I would really like to hide it (it can be even shown but in blue font so it was invisible but I haven't found such an option.


I will be grateful for your tips.


Thank you in advance.

Maybe try wrapping in an if condition - something like: 


the idea is that the grand totals won't have both row and column filtered.

Thanks for suggestion but you mean that I should create a measure out of the value displayed or how exactly should I use this code?
