Hi @Quiquebow3l ,

According to your description, there isn't a simple way to move the total column to the left now. However there is a workaround, instead of using automatic subtotals, you create "Total" rows in your data tables. Here's my solution.

Sample table:

1.Create a new table.

Table 2 =
VAR _total =
    ROW ( "Year", " Total", "Value", SUM ( 'Table'[Value] ) )
RETURN
    UNION ( 'Table', _total )

Result:

2. As we can see, I added one row at the end of my original data table, and give them “ Total” as the Year value. The blank character before the “Total” can make it become the first column in the Matrix because the columns in the Matrix of Power BI are sorted by the first character ascending.

3. Get the result.

I attach my sample below for your reference.
