Matrix with mix of measures in rows and columns? (Recreate Excel spreadsheet challenge!)

Monthly Budget Report structure.PNG

The above picture shows the structure of a report I designed in Excel long ago.  I now want to translate it into Power BI.  The difficult part is the last two columns.  "YTD" is the sum of all months to date (in this example, up to and including February). "FY20-21" is the sum of all months, including future months.  Obviously, for the Actual rows, this value will be the same in both colunms.  However, it will differ for the Budget and Variance rows.

 

I thought I had cracked this, using the method outlined here, but it's just dawned on me that it won't work with three different measures on my rows.  (Budget and Actual pull from different tables, and Variance is simply Actual minus Budget).

 

Any help much appreciated!

Thank you!  I finally figured it out - the method in the article I linked to was appropriate after all.  For some reason it took me ages to understand that I simply needed to create three different new measures (to replace Actual, Budget and Variance) in the way the article describes.
