Sort matrix Headers in order of sum of column

Hi all

I have a Matrix with Retailer names across the top (column names)

products classification down the left (row names)

and Year to Date values as Values

What I need to do is have the Retailer names in order of the sum of the colum totals

so that when I select to show only the 3 retailers I get the 3 with the highest sales and not the 3 who beging with "A"

Is this possible

Re: Sort matrix Headers in order of sum of column

Hi @LUCASM 

 

I've gone through the sample file, but sorry to tell you it's not accessible in the Matrix.

Hi @LUCASM 

 

you might consider creating pbix file that will contain some sample data (remove the confidential info), upload the pbix to onedrive for business and share the link to the file. Please do not forget to describe the expected results based on this sample data.

Re: Sort matrix Headers in order of sum of column

Hi @v-diye-msft 

As suggested I have uploaded a link to a demo file.

This contains some sample data and a text box showing the expected output.

 

I couldn't use OneDrive for Business due to company restrictions on Sharing, so this is on my Personal OneDrive

It would be good to know if the file can be accessed as expected.

 

test pbix file
