Display line chart based on the order of the data (order of the rows)

Hello, 

I'm trying to show the line chart for a spiral drawing (a collection of x,y coordinates).

I want to get something like this:

But here's what I get:

And here's my data:

So basically I want to draw the line chart based on the order of the points in my table,

ie. I want the line chart to start at point (0,0) (first row of the table) then (0.0049,0.008) (second row of the table) then so on.

In the second pic, the line chart starts at x = -5 and ends at x = 5.88 (it goes from smallest x to highest x), which is not what I want

 

Thanks!

Hi @tandtkg ,

You can try to use Scatter chart.

For Line chart, the values have been aggregated.

Thanks for the response, but for specific reasons, I want to display a line chart (like in the first pic I posted), and not a scatter chart. Is this impossible to do in power bi?

Hi @tandtkg ,

I'm afraid that Power BI doesn't support it now. Here is a simliar idea, and you could click to vote it up.
