How to suppress the first (empty) year in Year-over-year change


I created a new Year-over-year change quickmeasure for my matrix. It works without any problems. The only thing that is not so nice is that for the first year there are empty coloumns displayed:

Can anybody tell me how to suppress these empty columns?

Thanks a lot


Hi @banceschi,


Your above requirement is to dynamically show/hide/remove some specific columns/values displayed on Matrix, however, this functionality is not yet supported by Power BI desktop.

This was my first try but unfortunately this does not work. The empty columns are still showing up

Hello @banceschi,


Can you please share sample data or sample pbix file?



Hi rajulshah


I will post a link to a sample data this evening. Is it right that I can only share the sample pibx over Dropbox?

Hi Rajulshah


Here is the link to example PowerBI File;


Thanks for any help
