Summarize Matrix with First Shown Rows

Hi All,


I'm stuck with a problem in Power BI and I have finally decided to try my luck with the community. 


I have a collapsable matrix with several Rows and Values. Being Scope and Activity Rows, and Achievement a value,  the concept would be something similar to this: 


Scope    Activity   Achievement 

Plan         A           aaaaaaa

Plan         B           bbbbbb

Plan         C           ccccccc


This ordering is done based on an external value. 


When collapsing on Activity , I would like the summarization to show only the first row, regardless of whether it's empty or no. Something like this:


Scope  Achievement  

Plan     aaaaaaa 


I have tried my luck with the First option, but it doesn't seem to work - it summarizes it by alphabetical order.


I have tried simplifying the problem as much as possible, but let me know if you need a reproducible example from my real dataset. 


Thanks a lot for the help. You guys are amazing!

Hi @neoromanzer87 ,


If the column of Achievement is a measure, you can use the function of MIN to get the first value. 

Measure = MIN(Table1[Achievement])


If it is a separate column, you can choose the first of the values.


If it still doesn't work, please share more details about the table and post a screen shot.  You can mask the sensitive data.


Best Regards,
