Weisflog FunakiProblem with setting Anchor Point for multiple objects

Probably kind of a beginners question, didn't know the key phrases to use in search. I'm trying to finish something here, and stumbling on something I didn't expect.

In my composition I have 10 rows with each 16 3d cubes. Between each cube there is some horizontal and vertical space. At the end of the animation I want that the cubes come together, to form the bigger picture.

At first I wanted to use the Position property, but because this is determined by an expression I can't make other adjustments to it. Instead I thought I just change the Anchor Point. So I first selected each individual column (10 cubes) and set the Y-pos Anchor Point. Now I wanted to do the same thing for each row (16 cubes). So I selected an entire row and set the X-pos. Well, it sets the X-pos. But for each selected layer it also resets the Y-pos. That's not the correct value for the other objects.

How can I prevent this, or is there a more convenient method to do this?

Thanks for your advice in advance.
