Matrix with Parent Header or Grouping Measure by Type

Hello all,

 

I have 9 measures used on multiple other reports. 

I'm trying to build a Matrix and have the below results. It works but not grouped well and messy.

 MTD SalesQTR SalesYTD SalesInventorySeconday InventoryIn-TransitAt SeaFuture Orders ConfirmedFuture Orders Pending

East

         
West         
Central         

 

 

I want to have the measures have a parent title, or group them by there type (Sales, Inventory, Transit, Order). Imagine below but with merged cells. 

 

I've tired everything I can think of but falling short. Does anyone know how to do this?

hi @TS_PowerBI 

 

It's very possible. You will need a table, likely disconnected from your model, with the 4 states AND your measure titles. Add both into your matrix as columns.

 

Next, you may need a top level measure to determine what to show. Something along this line:

 

VAR _FindMeasure = SELECTEDVALUE(DisconnectedTable[MeasureTitle])
RETURN
SWITCH( _FindMeasure,
    "MTD Sales", [MTD Sales],
    "Inventory", [Inventory],
    "Future Orders Pending", [FutureOrdersPending]
)

 



EDIT: Here's a sample set-up you'd likely need
