Histogram from a measure table



I'm trying to create a histogram to display how the BIAS of a group is behaving.


I created a table through Power Query which can give me the information I need at the highest possible granularity, however I'd like to be able to group this information by SKU.


What I currently have is:

Information from original table @ higest granularity


Which would in turn in the grouped level be:

SKU 1-6.57562999102
SKU 2111.90893.74465197-0.19375
SKU 3200.5332200.5308001-1.2E-05

*Note in case of SKU 1 I use 2 as BIAS for everything with FCST 0*


When I graph this information with bins created with grouping I get this information:


Which is displaying the 14 rows shown in the highest granularity.


For the purpose of grouping the information I created a measure which returns the amount of grouped SKUs in the category:


CalcBIAS = 
VAR BinRange = GENERATESERIES ( -2, 2 , .1 )
Var TempTable =
    SUMMARIZE( 'BIAS (Baseline + FACT)', 'BIAS (Baseline + FACT)'[SKU] ),
    "BIAS", MIN(
                        'BIAS (Baseline + FACT)',
                        'BIAS (Baseline + FACT)'[FCST] - 'BIAS (Baseline + FACT)'[FACT]
                    SUMX( 'BIAS (Baseline + FACT)', 'BIAS (Baseline + FACT)'[FCST] ),

COUNTX(TempTable, [BIAS])


The result of the TempTable variable is a table which only has SKU and the grouped BIAS


However, when I try to place it in the same graph the result is this:



I get a very similar graph because it's "respecting" the grouping from the original table, so I have a single appearance of SKU 1, 4 SKU 2 and 4 SKU 3 (one for each calculated bin group).


My question is:

How can I change the the axis in my chart to be a series between -2 and 2 (in .1 increments) which doesn't save the original table's relation so I can group info?

Re: Histogram from a measure table

@LABORSAL , I checked out there is no option for tick interval. You can only change the decimal places.


You can try few other Histogram option in custom charts

Refer if this can help for any other :

Re: Histogram from a measure table

Current solution for that (which is what I believe is causing the split of groups) is to add a column to the main table



however if I use that column as axis it groups the SKU by bin from main table (which is what I explained in the graphs on original post)


I can recreate this column by adding a calculated column which does the same as the BIAS but rounds down to 1 decimal, however I have no idea how to use this calculated column in the measure for the axis.

“I can recreate this column by adding a calculated column which does the same as the BIAS but rounds down to 1 decimal...”

Only methods like this are more effective.


"however I have no idea how to use this calculated column in the measure for the axis."

Measure cannot be added to the axis label, you can understand measure as a dynamic value, so you can only rebuild a calculated column.
