          Assuming the each of the rows is a distinct measure and you are using Measure Names / Measure Values, then no, I don't believe you will be able to do this in a single view.  You cannot reference Measure Names in a calculated field.


          One possibility would be to create two separate views and put them together on a dashboard.  You could label them using two hard-coded calculated fields or just text objects on the dashboard.


          If I've mis-understood what you are trying to do, please attach a workbook and I'll gladly take a look!

              If you split the rows into multiple views on a dashboard, you could use text objects for labels.  Or you could create calculated fields with the values hard-coded.  There is not a way that I know of to do this in a single view.  I'd be happy to take a look at a workbook (even a screenshot might help).

                Could you please suggest me the best possible solution:


                Do i need to ask our database developer to create Category Dimension...? or Use Text Objects.

                I'm sorry Joshua i can't share sample package because of data confidential.
