Place a blank column in the layout

So I have this visiual :


What I want to achieve is a blank row where these yellow lines are.

That way it is nicer to compare the same months of differen years.

Because I also would want to turn this visual in a graph and have blank column between the bars.


I saw online Bas of "how to power BI" do this with calculation items in Tabular editor.

But I cannot reproduce it.

Probably because I am trying to do this with dates? He did it with measures.


Is there a way I can accomplish this with dates/periods?

And to add to this @NickolajJessen when I put the blank column in the measures, this is what happens:



I want both Januaries (and other months) of 2021 and 2022 together.

Putting the blank in the measures adds also a blank between 2021 and 2022 jan and I do not want that.

1. Create measure that returns BLANK()
2. Add to matrix

3. Rename on the visual to just be "-" (you can't rename it to be all blank sadly)
4. Optionally add color to the column to separate


Please mark this answer as the solution if it resolves your issue.
Appreciate your kudos! 😊


Thanks but I cannot add the measure to the columns of the matrix...
