Time Measures as column headers in Matrix/Table

I have a table that has a few columns : Date, Sales $, Profit $, a few other non-numeric columns. I was wondering if i could create a a table that had time parameters as the column headers (Current Day, Yesterday, MTD, QTD, etc.)? I have already created separate measures but want to consolidate. It was look similar to what is below. 

 

                      Current Day         Yesterday          MTD 

Orders                   5                         2                     10

Sales $                 $30                     $12                  $60

Profit                   $10                      $4                   $20

 

Thank you in advance

Hi @thampton 

If you could accept to transform the table structure or create a new table with a different structure from the original one, you could follow my steps below.

1. in Edit Queries,create a new blank query to copy your table

"New source"->Blank query, open "Advanced editor", enter 

let
Source = Sheet6
in
Source

 

2.in "Query1" created above, split columns "sales", "profit" step by step

3.Then remove "sales.1" and "profit.1" columns

rename  "sales.2" and "profit.2" columns as "sales", "profit"

 

select "sales", "orders" and "profit", unpivot these columns,

 

4. in the new created column "Value", check if its type is of number, if not, transform to number type.

or check each column to change to the proper type.

apply&close

 

5.create measures 

current day = CALCULATE(SUM(Query1[Value]),FILTER(ALLEXCEPT(Query1,Query1[Attribute]),Query1[date]=TODAY()))

yesterday = CALCULATE(SUM(Query1[Value]),FILTER(ALLEXCEPT(Query1,Query1[Attribute]),Query1[date]=TODAY()-1))

MTD = TOTALMTD(SUM(Query1[Value]),Query1[date])
