Matrix Visualization - Drillthrough Not working on Total

Dear Team,

 

I am not able to drill through on the total of the grand total line but I can drill through on all the other values on the grand total line. 

I was seeing there were some power bi issues with this in March. Please see my two attached screenshots displaying the issue.

 

Has anyone solved this?Not_Working.pngWorking.png

Hi @Anonymous ,

Based on my test, I have concluded the following points when using Drillthrough in Matrix visual:

1. To drillthrough columns total or rows total, you should set corresponding fields in drillthrough filters. For example, the row is group and the column is region now so if I want to drillthrogh both of totals, I should put these fields in filters:

row and columnrow and columndrillthrough filtersdrillthrough filters

row drillrow drillcolumn drillcolumn drill

2. Also, when we use drillthrough, we should set 'Allow drillthrough when' as 'Used as a category' instead of 'Summarized' in drillthrough filters:

In coclusion, if we want to use drillthrough, we should set corresponding field in filters first. As for the total in the right corner of the matrix, since there has no field matchs it so it could not drillthrough.

For more information about drillthrough, you can refer microsoft document: Drillthrough 

My sample file attached that could also help you: PBIX
