Hi, @Sbudd 

 

In order to display the row fields you want in the matrix, you need to Unpivot three fields in the Power Query.
You can then create 5 measures to display the 5 metrics you want.

 

Since there is only one date in a month in the data above, it would be better to rename the month column to date when there are more dates in a month. And you can create a calculated column to display the year and month correctly as well as to filter the data.

YYYY-mm = FORMAT('Table (2)'[Month],"YYYY-mm")

Here are 5 measures that can work for you.

LastMonth = 
var _lastMonth=CALCULATE(MAX('Table (2)'[Month]),ALLSELECTED('Table (2)'))
return 
CALCULATE(
    SUM('Table (2)'[Value]),
    FILTER(ALLEXCEPT('Table (2)','Table (2)'[Attribute]),EOMONTH('Table (2)'[Month],0)=EOMONTH(_lastMonth,0)))
Previous Month = 
var _lastMonth=CALCULATE(MAX('Table (2)'[Month]),ALLSELECTED('Table (2)'))
return 
CALCULATE(
    SUM('Table (2)'[Value]),
    FILTER(ALLEXCEPT('Table (2)','Table (2)'[Attribute]),EOMONTH('Table (2)'[Month],0)=EOMONTH(_lastMonth,-1)))
MOM% = 
DIVIDE(
[LastMonth]-[Previous Month],[Previous Month])
LastYear = 
var _lastMonth=CALCULATE(MAX('Table (2)'[Month]),ALLSELECTED('Table (2)'))
return 
CALCULATE(
    SUM('Table (2)'[Value]),
    FILTER(ALLEXCEPT('Table (2)','Table (2)'[Attribute]),EOMONTH('Table (2)'[Month],0)=EOMONTH(_lastMonth,-12)))
YOY% = 
DIVIDE(
[LastMonth]-[LastYear],[LastYear])

Result:

i think you should unpivot your table from

faisalazh_0-1642429912803.png

into this table:

faisalazh_1-1642429963685.png

you can unpivot your table using the Power Query Editor (Edit Query)

then you can add calculated column to get previous month value:

 

Previous Month = 
var fldAttr = 'Table'[Attribute] // This is the metrics
var fldPrevMonth = calculate( max('Table'[Month]), filter('Table', 'Table'[Month] < EARLIER('Table'[Month]) ) )
var fldValue = sumx( filter('Table', 'Table'[Month] = fldPrevMonth && 'Table'[Attribute] = fldAttr), 'Table'[Value] )
return fldValue

 

then you can have like this table as a result

Thanks for the speedy help! 

Im getting errors, so I feel we're 99% there.

FIrst one was "A Single value for column Attribute in Tablecannot be determined. SO i wrapped in in a MIN which removed that error.

Second error im getting is "EARLIER refers to an earlier row context which doesnt exist"

 

Any ideas?

 

i guess you create a new measure rather than a new column (calculated column).

just create a new column like this picture.
