Dynamic Column Header in Matrix/Table

Dear Community,


In my Report I am having some date based calculations which are dependent on Region also

The date based calculations are :

PY = Previous Year Sales.

CM = Current month Sales (This varies from Region to Region)

CM-1 = Current month -1 Sales (This varies from Region to Region)

CM-2 = Current month -2 Sales (This varies from Region to Region)

YTD = Year to Date(This varies from Region to Region)


For Example EU27+UK is one region and World is another region.
So for EU27+UK it may happen that all the calculations are done based on June 2023

and for World it may have happened for March 2023.
So dynamically in the Power BI visual can I change the name of the column?


Current Scenario



Expected Output.



Any hints/leads/ suggestions would be great.
I already went thorugh the some youtube videos. But these cases are not appliable for us, beacuse we have the region based dates.

Hi @goo6kor ,


In Power BI, you can use calculation groups and Tabular Editor to create dynamic column names based on different calculations. However, creating calculation groups natively in Power BI Desktop is not available yet, and you need to use Tabular Editor to modify the dataset

To achieve dynamic column names based on the region and date, you can create a calculation group that takes the region and date as parameters and returns the appropriate column name. Then, you can use this calculation group in your Power BI visual to display the dynamic column names.
