## P&L Help +- & Sort

Hi community,
Two questions I'm having trouble with
I have a financial statement the Description in the table come from an Dim account
The amount comes from the FACT table
Everything is connected well
the problem
1. I would like a certain account to bring me a plus amount and another account to bring me a minus amount
For example Revenues will be positive
And FEE will be negative
I have a hard time doing this

2. I would like to determine the order of the sections in the visual
Regolar solutions don't work for me because each section comes from a different place in the account hierarchy

Thanks

1.  Add a calculated column that inverts the sign for the fees but keeps it for the revenues

2. Create a reference table with the sections and their desired sort order as an index.  Then use "Sort one column by another column"

The fact table seems to be missing the account reference?

I am trying to create a correct plus and minus sign in my numbers
I have an agg(+,-) column where the signs are correct
And I have an Amount column.
Because when I multiply between them something falls

The logic of the measure says Amount * Agg (column sign)
The rest of the formula is ignoring other filters

Please show the expected outcome based on the sample data you provided.

Unfortunately your sample data is still not in a usable shape.

You also seem to expect to be able to use data from different levels of the hierarchy.  While that is possible it will make the measure very complex as you will have to account for all hierarchy level scenarios separately to avoid double counting. You may want to rethink that process.

Sorry for the delay and the mess
I really didn't specify the data a bit because I thought I would get a general direction
But thanks for the answer and the desire to help
I have attached in the link both a PBIX file and a detailed Excel file that contains my example
Unfortunately, the data is sensitive and it is difficult for me to prepare an example case
I will send you another message regarding this matter
Beyond that, I think that the sample data will be able to give a clearer direction this time

expected outcome:

What you see in the Visual sheet in Excel

Thanks!
