Combining values from a field and filtering into rows

Hey everyone,

Here is some sample data of what I am trying to create..

Let's say I have the field "Work Orders".. using the column "PrimaryIncidentType" (Workorder[PrimaryIncidentTypeName]  is the exact field name)

inside this field can contain

AT - PM

AT - DM

AT - EM

CT - PM

CT - DM

CT - DM

DC - PM

DC - DM

DC - EM (this goes on like 3 more times)

Is there a way to get just the PM in a row named PM and contains all of the data just for the PMs?  Same with others, here is my goal below

                        Jan     Feb    March  etc etc                        Dec

PM                    $20  $10   etc etc

DM

EM

Thanks!

Hi, @thomas_coltrain 

You can try to add another calculated column to category these data rows ,then apply this field to a matrix row.

Calculated column =
SWITCH (
    TRUE (),
    CONTAINSSTRING ( Workorder[PrimaryIncidentTypeName], "PM" ), "PM",
    CONTAINSSTRING ( Workorder[PrimaryIncidentTypeName], "DM" ), "DM",
    CONTAINSSTRING ( Workorder[PrimaryIncidentTypeName], "EM" ), "EM"
)

Hi @thomas_coltrain 

 

Can you post sample data as text and expected output?
Not enough information to go on;

The most important parts are:
1. Sample data as text, use the table tool in the editing bar
2. Expected output from sample data
3. Explanation in words of how to get from 1. to 2.
4. Relation between your tables

Appreciate your Kudos!!
