Sorting Financial Templates with blank rows

Does anyone know how i can sort my financial template with blanks in the format i like? I've tried to sort the other columns in the order of the index numbers but an error message pops up. Capture1.PNG

@thamzh ,

 

As the error message mentions, there's duplicate values in [P&L Items] column for the same value in [Index] column, you should remove the duplicate values in [P&L Items] firstly.

@thamzh . Sort by column also needs to have the same granularity. Means one on one value. Else it will not work

Hi @amitchandak, thanks for your response. 

 

I have referred to a guide by EnterpriseDNA at this link: https://blog.enterprisedna.co/how-to-allocate-results-to-templates-at-every-single-row-using-power-b...

Do you have any idea why it seems to be able to work for the example shown but not for my model? I have used a similar financial template created in Excel as well.
