I have a data of following type. Could anyone please help me make chart as the below.

I am new to power BI and recently started making some dashboards reports.

 

I have a table as below.

 

NameScore AScore BScore CScore D
College A7443
College A3364
College A5585
College B2686
College B6322
College C2548
College C4324
College D8463
College D6774

Can any one help me summarize above table as

College B4554
College C3436
College D8573
Instution5.004.505.254.25

  

in power bi and make a chart as follows.

I could do it in excel but not in power BI.

hi @slowlearner,

 

alternatively to the suggested DAX way you could use power query when getting the data into power bi so it fits your needs.

I made an pbix showing the transformations step by step - you would do it in a single step, so you do not end up with the intermediate steps.

steps were:

- 00 base data as you provided

- 01 aggregating data (00) to institution level (average for scores)

- 02 unpivot the score columns

- 03 unpivoting the base data (00)

- 04 union of (02) and (03)

Hi @slowlearner

 

You can create a calculated table using the below DAX ( Go to Modelling tab -> New Table, use this code)

 

Avg summary = SUMMARIZE('Avg',
ROLLUP('Avg'[Name]),
"Avg of A", AVERAGE('Avg'[Score A]),
"Avg of B", AVERAGE('Avg'[Score B]),
"Avg of C", AVERAGE('Avg'[Score C]),
"Avg of D", AVERAGE('Avg'[Score D])
)

 

2. Create a new column

Rename = IF(ISBLANK('Avg summary'[Name]),"Institution", 'Avg summary'[Name])

Use "stackd bar chart" visual to get your desired result.

Thank you for the reply.

Hi @slowlearner

 

To get the Score as Axis, you need to do this in Power Query and use Pivot as suggested by @DaFloDo .

 

Thanks

Hi @DaFloDo,

Thank you for your reply.

Do I have to manually do the step 02 and 03?

How do I automatically unpivot?

 

Thanks,

Santo

Hi @slowlearner,

 

you perform these steps only one time when you define your query. I would do this manually using the UI. Alternatively you can use the Power Query M code provided within the sample file as a starting point.

After that, each time you refresh the data (for example after the source has been updated) these steps are automatically performed to bring the data into your Power BI model.

 

best regards
