[Horizontal Bar Chart:] Prevent labels from being concatenated on the Y axis


In vertical bar charts we have the possibility to disable the "Concatenate Labels" on the X axis. It would be nice to be able to do this in horizontal bar charts, in the Y. Does anyone know how to do it? we want something momo the image

Hi @Jesusmari 


We found that when creating a Stacked Bar Chart visualisation and using the County Hierarchy on the Y axis and Sales Count on the value, there was no choice to concatenate labels on the Y axis formatting options.


We know from experience that by changing the chart to a Stacked Column Chart, there is a concatenate option available on the X axis

We observed that by setting concatenate labels to “Off” and changing the visual back to a Stacked Bar Chart, the Y axis labels concatenated correctly.

Thank you for your contribution:

In my case what I need is just the opposite: that the labels on the Y axis are not concatenated.

Let's hope that upcoming Power BI updates will incorporate the option to turn off label concatenation on the Y axis for horizonatles bar charts.

Best regards
