Group by > Column with same value but did not group together

Hi, 

Is this a bug from power BI? 

I have a table that I wish to group by a category so I could get a first launching year as below.

The mold category and mold no is identical in value, suppose it should get grouped together, but it did not and show 2 duplicated result. I even tried "Remove Duplicate" but this record is still there. 

It has to be one record because i wanted to use it in a one-to-many relation later.

 

Best Regards

@keithchai make sure there is no non-printable or space in any of the columns, so before you do a grouping, use trip and clean steps and then check.
