Formatting Column headers in matrix

Hi All,


is there any chance to change some column headers background?? I need to separate half of the columns and that would be the greatest solution to change their backgruond! I know that I can't do this in the Format tab of the Matrxi visual, so somebady has any idea please help!

Thank you in advance!

I've solved the problem and it's possbile :)))

In the Column Format tab, where you can set background or front color for one chose column, there you can set up that the format you want only apply for headers, and does not apply for values and totals maybe! This way I can chenge some specified column headers into another back color!!

Hi @v-yulgu-msft


I wanted to make something like this:







To make difference between the column headers (like colours)

I know its impossible, so is there any other chance to make difference?

Thank you in advance!

Hi @Anonymous,


Unfortunately, it's not possible by now.

Happy Monday. Always good to read an incredibly long list of comments where the end result Microsoft saying 'Unfortunately, it's not possible by now' for something that should be simple. Thanks.
