Grouping and Subtotal before grandtotal

Hello everyone,

I hope the community has a solution to this problem in powerbi.  In excel I am able to do that following table/matrix representation because we use sum() and sumif() function and can place a subtotal anywhere before a grand total.

Case Type 010203040507Sub Total06Grand Total
FY 202024111210212
FY 2021102111617


I want to duplicate that representation table in powerbi, but could not figure out a way to stick a subtotal between those case type before the grand total.


Here is my data table sample:

@oluong it is not going to be easy in the power bi, in other words, nothing is available out of the box, but there are workarounds. You need to basically create a table that contains a list of columns you need to use in the matrix set the sort order of those and then write a DAX measure to check what column you are at and based on the column you are at  DAX measure will return the value for that column.
