## Dynamic Measure Header Naming in Matrix

I have several measures that have corresponding current year, last year, and two years ago measure counterparts.

Example: Sales, Sales CY, Sales LY, Sales LY-1

I have these in a matrix, but I the column headers in the matrix need to read: Sales 2022, Sales 2021, Sales 2020

Right now, I have them manually named, but I would like this to be dynamic so we see a seamless switch when the year changes instead of someone needing to go in and manually update. Any suggestions?

@Anonymous create a table as below.

Use the measure as

``````Metrix Measures =
SWITCH(TRUE(),
SELECTEDVALUE(Metrix[Year]) = MAX(Metrix[Year]) && MAX(Metrix[Type]) = "CY",100, -- CY Value
SELECTEDVALUE(Metrix[Year]) = MAX(Metrix[Year]) && MAX(Metrix[Type]) = "PY",200, -- PY Value
SELECTEDVALUE(Metrix[Year]) = MAX(Metrix[Year]) && MAX(Metrix[Type]) = "PY-1",300 -- PY-1 Value
)``````

Let me know if that helps.

So this worked perfectly for the situation, but I do have a follow-up. I have several measures I have added to this table, but a couple of them are percentages. Is there a way to control the data types for specific columns instead of simply all of them?
