How to show graph interval by week

I have a spreadsheet with data that has multiple items by day. When showing one of the graphs, I want it to display the time interval on the x axis by week - how do I achieve this? Seems pretty simple but I can't figure out how to make it happen.

@brkling - This is going to depend on your data. If you have a date, you could create a calculated column using WEEKNUM:

And use that as your x-axis.

If this doesn't solve your problem, please post an example data row or partial data row.

A date dimension is always the appropriate solution to this sort of problem.

Hi guys,

I have a similar problem, that I need to show public in a park per week but my problem is that I need a line per year.

My X should be the week numbers but need two Y, one for showing public per week of 2016 and another for 2017.

How would I do that?

You can do this by creating two calculated measures that filter the public per year (one for 2016 and other for 2017). Something like:

Public2017 = FITLER(Table[ColumnW/PublicNumbers]; YEAR(Table[ColumnW/DateOfTheColectedData]) = 2017)

Public2016 = FITLER(Table[ColumnW/PublicNumbers]; YEAR(Table[ColumnW/DateOfTheColectedData]) = 2016)

And using this calculated measures as line values in your chart.

Hope it helps!
