Display table with all possible combination of columns values

Hi,

 

I have a table of multiple columns that I will like to display showing all possible combinations of those values. Does anyone has an easy solution? Below a simple example of what I am trying to resolve. Thank you.

Re: Display table with all possible combination of columns values

Hi @Aleph18 

Create a new table, where Table1 is the original table you show on the left:

NewTable =
VAR AuxTable_ =
    CROSSJOIN ( DISTINCT ( Table1[Product] ); DISTINCT ( Table1[Type] ) )
RETURN
    ADDCOLUMNS (
        AuxTable_;
        "Quantity"; LOOKUPVALUE (
            Table1[Quantity];
            Table1[Product]; [Product];
            Table1[Type]; [Type]
        )
    )

Re: Display table with all possible combination of columns values

You can use this DAX, though I always prefer to do this type of thing in Power Query:

Table 2 = 
ADDCOLUMNS(
CROSSJOIN( 
    SELECTCOLUMNS('Table', "Type",'Table'[Type]),
    SELECTCOLUMNS('Table',"Product",'Table'[Product]
    )
),
"Quantity", CALCULATE( SUM( 'Table'[Qty])))
