Table with Column and Row identifiers

I have a table "Monthly Sales" that has the Sales Reps in rows and Months as Columns.

 

DSwezey_0-1636659423576.png

 

I need to calculate the current selected month sales amount per sales rep based on this data. The issue I am faced with is how do I tell Power Query that the columns are dates so I can write a measure to look for current selected month.

 

EX: If I selected a date of 10/20/2021 I would want to see the October amount for Nick and Hatcher.

Hi @DSwezey ,

 

1.As @AlexisOlson  suggested, please click the Name column --> Select Unpivot other columns:

2. Create a date table, build relationships based on Month column.  (I have renamed the Attribute column to Month)

ForSlicer = ADDCOLUMNS( CALENDAR(DATE(2021,1,1),DATE(2021,12,31)),"Month", FORMAT([Date],"mmmm"))
