Matrix Visualization - Columns within a column

The above image is from an Excel file. I would like to recreate that in Power BI Desktop. By using the Matrix Visualization in Power BI Desktop I did only manage to create this:

Another problem is that I can't add the Shipped Date Year again since it is already added.

Thanks.

Re: Matrix Visualization - Columns within a column

Hi @hustlas4ever,

 

The Power BI matrix visual is different from the Pivot table in Excel. The matrix cells display aggregate values that are scoped to the intersection of the row and column groups to which the cell belongs. We are not able to add duplicate columns to the Row or Column groups. So in your scenario, unless the original table contains a specific column group both Ship Date column, then you can get your expected results. You can see attached .pbix.
