## Combine multiple measures in a single matrix

I have a product table:

On this table I have 4 measures:

1. Lowest Sales Price = MIN([Sales price])
2. Highest Sales Price = MAX([Sales price])
3. Lowest Cost Price = MIN([Cost price])
4. Highest Cost Price = MAX([Cost price])

I want to see the results in one single matrix:

I'm struggling with finding a way to accomplish this. I guess it can be done with DAX table functions?

@__Marc__ Perhaps take a look at "Show measures on rows" functionality or you may need to go down the path of a customer matrix hierarchy. I'll have to see if I can find some time to play with it. https://community.powerbi.com/t5/Quick-Measures-Gallery/The-New-Hotness-Custom-Matrix-Hierarchy/m-p/...

Here is one way:

1) Create a new unrelated table with the following using "Enter Data" in the ribbon. I've called the table "RowTable"

2) Create the following measures:

``````Lowest =
IF ( SELECTEDVALUE ( RowTable[Row] ) = "Sales", [Min Sales], [Min Cost] )
``````
``````Highest =
IF ( SELECTEDVALUE ( RowTable[Row] ) = "Sales", [Max Sales], [Max Cost] )
``````

3) Create the matrix using the Row table as rows and the Category as columns. Add both the new measures to the values bucket and you will get:

The solution works beautifully. There's only one minor thing. If possible I would like to sort the measures on the, not in matrix included, Index field. I guess this isn't possible, but if you know a way let me know :).

Sorry, I'm not sure what you mean. Can you post a depiction?
