Matrix - How to remove the grand total and keep subtotals?

Hello,

 

Is there a way to keep the subtotals and remove the grand total in a matrix?


For example, in the following matrix, it doesn't make sense to add values for multiple years of sales (thus, also to keep a grand total row), but it is necessary to add values for different months in the same year:

See link on how this can be achieved.  I stumbled across it while looking for the answer myself.

Thanks @timetraveler and @v-chuncz-msft , you can define which totals have been enabled by selecting Row subtotals --> Apply settings to per row level on.

Not true.  See link below.  It shows how to disable one or the other.

@webportal,

 

In the Format section of the Visualizations pane, expand the Subtotals card, turn the Row subtotals slider to On and then Per row level slider.

I can either remove ALL subtotals or enable them ALL, but can't find out how to remove the grand total only.

It's located under Format (roller icon) > Subtotals > Keep the Row Subtotals on, scroll down a bit to last section of Subtotals, you'll see per Row Level and other fields available. You just switch the toggle.

I have version Version: 2.71.5523.941 64-bit (juli 2019) (Desktop) but cannot find it.

Where exactly do i find it?

Sorry - found it! (but it looked different)

For the Matrix Format (roller icon) there is not much functionality under the Grand Total property yet unfortunately.

I changed the Font Colour to white to make the grand total figure disappear, good enough till this is enhanced 🙂

I did the same thing, changing the font for the grand total row to white, although that "Total" word still appears on the left.   I guess that's a compromise, but it's disappointing that, even 3 years after your post, Microsoft doesn't distinguish between subtotal rows and grand total rows.

In the latest version (2023-Apr) you set "Row subtotals" On and then "Per row level" also to On. Leaving the latter Off enables row Grand totals. Kinda misleading, but that's how it works.

@v-chuncz-msft ah, the latest version...

Thank you Microsoft 🙂
