Switch levels of double header matrix

I have a matrix with a bunch of measures as values. I want to divide it by month and I am able to, just not in the format I need. currently I have something like this one on my matrix. I put the month in the columns field and all the measures in the values field.

I want my matrix to look like this:

 Measure 1Measure 1Measure 2Measure 2Measure 3Measure 3Measure 4Measure 4Measure 5Measure 5

item1

I am able to do this easily on pivot tables on excel because an extra field on on the columns field appears representing everything in the values field  but I can't seem to find an equivalent function on power BI.

HI @amitchandak Thanks for your reply!

 

currenty trying to follow your video, it looks like it has exactly what I need. I am running into this error, I tried to follow the logic with my own naming convention but I am receiving this error. I can't find what I am doing wrong here
