Chart colours

Hi All,

 

Is it possible to use categorical variables such as (Colour/Department) etc.. to colour the simple bar and column charts)?
For e.g. if i have a sales by product chart, and each product belongs to a particular department.
Can i create a column chart which shows the sales by product and a colour coding based on the department?

Hi

 

  You can achieve that by using legend. Check the below screenshot. Let me know if you need some other logic.

Hi @Gnanasekar,

 

Have you tried the solution provided by @rhariharaneee above? Does it work in your scenario? If it works could you accept it as solution to close this thread?

 

If you still have any question on this issue, feel free to post here. Smiley Happy

Hi @rhariharaneee and @v-ljerr-msft

When i  use the department as legend, there is a bar corresponding to each department for every product. ie, there are 3 bars corresponding to A,B,C for every product. We will be having more than 100 products and so the bars will be displayed like lines.

Sales is calculated as the MRP*Qty.
