<P>Hi everyone,</P><P> </P><P>Could someone tell me if it would be possible to visualize the frequency of distribution of values of a calculated measure? For example, I have a table of values with a column "X", and I would like to evaluate for each row of that column a new measure "Y". So if I have 10 different values in that column "X", I will have 10 different values for measure "Y". Would it be possible to visualize these calculated values in a distribution density plot, without having to use calculated columns or tables? (I would like the chart to be responsive to filters applied on the main table, maybe grouping the results into bins)</P><P> </P><P>So far I haven't gotten any clues as to what needs to be done. I tried to start by generating a formula that returned the values of the measure applied to each row, similar to what the DAX VALUES method does with columns, but it did not work. I've been using Power BI for a short time but I believe there may be some workaround for at least this.</P>Wed, 18 May 2022 13:47:28 GMTFranciscoHoff2022-05-18T13:47:28ZView distribution frequency of a measure

<P>Hi <LI-USER uid="346292"></LI-USER> ,</P>
<P> </P>
<P>Do you mean to have a table with values like this and see how many 80, 90 or 100 there are?</P>

<P>If you add the column to the X-Axis and the do a count on the Y-Axis it will give you the expected result.</P>
<P> </P>
<P>If you want to add bins you can select the specific column and then do data groups</P>

<P>Hi <LI-USER uid="346292"></LI-USER> ,</P>
<P>According to your description, if you only put the measure in a chart to see its <SPAN>distribution frequency</SPAN>, it can't get the expected result, because measure is based on the corresponding column to generate values. The number of measures is the same as the number of values in the column, if there's only a measure in the visual, it will only return one value. Additionally, a measure can't be in the Axis of a chart.</P>
