Group values in column chart/bar chart

Hey All,
I want to grop the blanks value to another bar. Is it possible?
For example, I want that blanks will be counted with code 9. So blank will be removed from the chart and 9 will show 292 + 5 = 297.

Re: Group values in column chart/bar chart

Hi @AClerk ,

By my tests, the solution of parry2k should be helpful.

I have made a test pbix to reproduce your scenario.

Re: Group values in column chart/bar chart

@AClerk you can add another column and use that on x axis

 

New Code = IF( ISBLANK(Table[Code]), 9, Table[Code] )

Re: Group values in column chart/bar chart

Hey,

That is more or less what I have done, but it is not working.
Thia is my DAX:
Code =
IF(ISBLANK(Table[CODE]), "9",
IF(Table[CODE] = "1", "1",
IF(Table[CODE] = "2", "2",
IF(Table[CODE] = "3", "3",
IF(Table[CODE] = "4", "4",
IF(Table[CODE] = "9" , "9",
"Unknown")
)))))

Re: Group values in column chart/bar chart

@AClerk did you tried what I sent? Not sure why you have to have more if condition, i think ask is if blank then 9 else whatever the code value is, isnt it?

Re: Group values in column chart/bar chart

Hey @parry2k ,

Not accurate.

I am trying to map the codes to readable values. Sorry, I cannot write the real values due to sensetive data.

I am using numbers here just to ilustrate.

So, if code is 1, show text_1,

if code is 2, show text_2

...

if code is 9 or blank, show text_9

 

So the users can read the values and not guess what is the meaning of each code.

 

Ta!

Re: Group values in column chart/bar chart

@AClerk interesting, you can use switch statement, easy to work with

 

Switch ( Table[Code] ,
1, "Whatever text",
2, "Whatever text",
9, "text for 9",
"text for 9" --this will be final condition if nothing matches above and blank will fall here
)

Re: Group values in column chart/bar chart

@parry2k 
Although switch and if are the same, from logical perspective, I tried to use switch.
I am still with the same results.
New Code =
SWITCH(Table[CODE],
"1", "Text_1",
"2", "Text_2",
"3", "Text_3",
"4", "Text_4",
"9", "Text_9",
"Text_9")


For some reason Power BI is not catching these blanks. Not sure why though.

 

Thanks!

Re: Group values in column chart/bar chart

@AClerk can you share visual like before using with new code on x axis

 

if possible, please share pbix, remove any sensitive information, we are surely missing something here.

Re: Group values in column chart/bar chart

Hi,

In the Table where you have dragged the Codes from, create this calculated column formula

=IF(ISBLANK(Data[Codes]),9,Data[Codes])

Hope this helps.

Re: Group values in column chart/bar chart

Hi @parry2k 
I tried to export to csv the data, but clearly it works there and the visual shows correctly.

My original dataset is a Firebird DB.

Not sure how to share the PBIX without revealing the data.

Ta!
