    show multiple columns under sub columns

    Cindy Goede

      I would like to show two separate columns under each cohort column like as follows 

      In the attached workbook, it looks like this


      Any advice would be greatly appreciated.


      Thank you

          Like Sheet 50 (2) in the attached version?

            How did you do that?

            I see you moved Measure Names to columns, then ... what

              First, I removed all of your pills from the detail shelf and filter shelf, so I had a blank slate, except for your rows and columns pills.


              Then, I tried a few things that didn't work. Usually, if you drag more than one measure onto the canvas, it automatically switches to measure names/measure values mode. In your situation, it put one of them on text and the other on color, which I didn't expect. I'm guessing that is because you had put that item on color before, so it defaulted to that.


              That caused me to use the manual method for measure names/measure values:

              1. Drag Measure Values onto Text
              2. Drag Measure Names onto Columns, after Number In Cohort
              3. That gets very close, but the Sem% is summed, which you don't want. Since ATTR(Sem%) worked for you before, you have several solutions that all work the same by changing the Sum(Sem%) pill to:
                1. Attribute
                2. Min(Sem%)
                3. Max(Sem%)
                4. Median(Sem%)
                5. Average(Sem%)


              (The secret to the last step is that ATTR() compares the min and max values, and if they are equal, displays the value. If not, it displays *. If the min and max are equal, then all the values are the same, so min, max, average and median are all the same values.)


              I hope that helps!


              Oh, and I forgot to say a big THANK YOU for including a sample packaged workbook! It made it much easier to help you.
