Matrix not total of rows



I am new to Power BI so please be gentle 🙂


I have a dataset similar to this:


Record ID                   Check1                  Check 2                  Check 3

1                                  Pass                       Pass                        Pass

2                                  Fail                         Fail                        Pass

3                                  Pass                       Fail                           Pass

4                                  Fail                        Fail                           Fail


I want to display that similar to this:


                         Pass                         Fail

Check1              2                              2

Check2              1                              3

Check3              3                              1


Idealy it would still work with the interactions so that when you click the two that have failed check1 then the table thats linked can still show the two.


Hope this all makes sense

You can unpivot your column .

See attached.  You should consider shaping your data in power query first.  Utilize the unpivot other columns feature and make the table three columns, then you can utilize a matrix as you have described. Please take a look and let me know if I can assist further.

Sorry i should have been more specific in my first post.


So I am happy how the dataset is created - as i need the dataset to show row by row in a detail table.  However i am trying to create a summary page.


The only way i have been able to do it is with a duplicate dataset.   The downside is that the duplicate dataset table cannot drill down into the detailled dataset.


Sorry for confusion.
