Hi, @Migscruz , you might want to refer to the attached file for the method. Have fun!

 Thanks to the great efforts by MS engineers to simplify syntax of DAX! Most beginners are SUCCESSFULLY MISLED to think that they could easily master DAX; but it turns out that the intricacy of the most frequently used RANKX() is still way beyond their comprehension! DAX is simple, but NOT EASY!

To do this, you will likely need to make a 2nd disconnected table of your column values (A..Z).  To get it to show in just one half of the matrix, you need some way to compare the row and column values, and use an IF along the line of = IF(MIN(Table1[Letter])<= MIN(Table2[Letter]), [Your Expression], "-")

Depending on what your expression is, you will likely need to use TREATAS() to pass the filter (column header value) from Table2 to Table1 for your calculation.

If your rows/columns are actual letters, that should work.  If not, you can have a Sort Order column on both and use that column in the MIN comparisons.

You can make the 2nd disconnected table with something like

Table2 = DISTINCT(Table1[Letters])
