Unbalanced Headers in a Matrix

Hello friends,

I need to prepare a table in this format.

My client insists that they need this exact format and I wonder if there is any (maybe custom) visual that will allow me to implement the request without building a bunch of measures. I already have: Actual, Budget, Forecast, Delta - so all the rest should be just playing with Time hierarchy levels.

Please help

Re: Unbalanced Headers in a Matrix

One approach to solve issues like this is to produce one or more disconnected tables that contain the structure you need. From there you can write a measure that responds to the structure to give you what you need. I don’t have anything I can share that is identical to what you want, but here are 2 things you can look at that may help you understand the concept.
