## Power BI Dynamic Grouping

I've a requirement on a Table to summarise the data based on below scenarios: The Table 1 is the existing, the Table 2 is what is expecting.

Table 1

 Item# ItemName Reason Catogery LostSales 28783 Item 1 Orders waiting cat1 \$54 28783 Item 1 Short Term Out Of Stock cat1 \$13 28844 Item 2 Long Term Out of Stock cat 2 \$78 29193 Item 3 Orders waiting cat 3 \$15 30151 Item 4 Discontinue cat 4 \$302 30311 Item 5 Not applicable cat 5 \$64 30663 Item 6 Orders waiting cat 6 \$418

Table 2

 Item# ItemName Reason Catogery LostSales 28783 Item 1 Mixed cat1 \$68 28844 Item 2 Long Term Out of Stock cat 2 \$78 29193 Item 3 Orders waiting cat 3 \$15 30151 Item 4 Discontinue cat 4 \$302 30311 Item 5 Not applicable cat 5 \$64 30663 Item 6 Orders waiting cat 6 \$418

Any one help on this achieving the Table 2.

Hi,

You need to create measure like this:

```Reason_new =
var _Reason = LASTNONBLANK(Arkusz1[Reason];1)
RETURN
IF(
CALCULATE( DISTINCTCOUNT(Arkusz1[Reason]) ;
all(Arkusz1[Reason])) > 1
;"Mixed"
;_Reason
)```

This is solution for you.

I'm not sure what behaviour you want when filters are applied via slicers that result in only 1 reason being present, but just note that @saykasku 's approach will always return "Mixed" regardless of any current filters, while the approach using SELECTEDVALUE() function will switch to showing the single reason if the current filter context eliminates the multiple reasons. Both approaches are valid, it just depends on what your requirements are.

Is there some way to have something like this that will instead solo out Columns along with their supporting rows? I also need a way to group 4 columns without changing the data just want power BI to recognize that these 4 columns are all under 1 main name

The only way I can think of for doing this would be to create a measure which you would use in place of the "Reason" attribute.

eg.

Reason Text = SELECTEDVALUE( 'Table 1'[Reason], "Mixed")
