Description column showing values on line header only

Hello everyone,

 

I'm starting at this world of BI and doing my first report at PowerBI Desktop for my Organization.
This report consists in a matrix table, wich has a lot of columns and rows but the most important ones are the Project name row with drill down for Tasks name row, and a column showing the Project's Description.

This is how the table looks like now:

And this is how i want it to look like (made it on Microsoft Paint):

PowerBI fórum 3.png

 

What i need is to show the project's description only at the line header when i do the drill down showing the project's tasks. I've tried everything but only got the description being showed at every line, repeatedly at Project's name and every Task's name.
Anyone know how to solve this?
Just to know: "Projeto" and "Tarefas" at visualization tab are equal to "Project name" and "Tasks name".

I'm sorry if my english haven't make things clear, it's not my primary language.

Hi @BrunoErhardt ,

 

First of all, We suggest you to delete any Confidential Information in your screenshot (such as project name and description) in this public forum as soon as possible.

 

we can create a measure to show the description and keep the row subtotal option on to meet your requirement.

 

Description = IF(ISINSCOPE('Table2'[Task]),BLANK(),MAX('Table2'[Describe]))

@BrunoErhardt in format pane,  under row headers, turn step layout off

Re: Description column showing values on line header only

Hello @parry2k ,

Hi @BrunoErhardt ,

 

How about the result using measure in my original post?

Sorry, my post got marked as Spam because i edited a couple of times to black out the personal infos, so i couldnt answer properly.
Your measure have solved the problem!

And i am so grateful for this, i was getting so annoyed because of this problem.

I did exactly as you said, created a new measure and turned on the head row option and it worked fine!

Thanks so much.
