Vertical lines between columns on a matrix table

Hi everyone, 

 

I am looking to add some vertical lines to my matrix table so are some separation between each column. Is this currently possible? Thank you in advance!

Hi @NedFlanders01 ,

I wanted to acheive the same thing with the caviat that I wanted to define the Vertical Grid line thickness for different levels of my hierarchy but no luck so far. Here is what I've ended up:

I built a Calendar hierachy but you don't necessarily need a hierarchy to make this happen. In my scenario, I wanted the hierarchy vertical lines to be thicker than the measures vertical line. 

 

In your case, all you need is to turn on the Vert Grid and give it some thickness and color.

Hope that helps.

The reply marked as a solution is not quite a solution to the requested problem.  Turning on the vertical grid puts vertical lines between every column.  The original request, as well as the problem I am trying to solve, is to only put vertical lines between the changes in the Column field and not between the multiple Values fields.  We both only want vertical lines separating the months with no line between goal and actual within the month.

Did you try my link?  This is the work around for what you are after I believe.

And the answer to the OP.  That is why I added my initial reply.

Adding this reference to help others and so I can find it again.

I did not originally read your link, but that does indeed solve the OP better than the marked solution.

@NedFlanders01,

 

You may try Grid in the Format section of the Visualizations pane or add Line from Shapes in the Home ribbon.

@v-chuncz-msft, thank you for the reply. I may have mispoke in my original post.

 

What I am trying to achive is to have a line that separates out the months. Screenshot below is from Tableau, which I am trying to replicate in PBI.
