Line Chart Without Real Dates - Direct Query

Hello,  I have a SQL table populated with scores 0-5 at different places in time. Please note I am using Direct Query in this file so I cannot create any new tables.

 

CustIDcurrent_score6_months_ago12_monthsago18_months_ago24_months_ago
A132223
B10144blank
C123blankblank5

 

I need to create a line chart for the average of scores at each point in time:

x-axis is the points in time (current_score, 6_months_ago, 12_months_ago, etc.)

y-axis is the average score (first dot will be average of current_score = ((3+0+2)/3).

 

So I will have 5 dots across the length of the visual with lines connecting those dots.
I do have blanks (not nulls) in the dataset that need to be trimmed. 

 

Thanks for any help!

Carly

Re: Line Chart Without Real Dates - Direct Query

Hi @sotoc 
Open edit queries,
Click on "CustID" column, then select "Transform->Unpivot columns->Unpivot other columns",

Close&&apply

Create a column

Column = IF([Value]="blank","0",[Value])

Then change its data type to "whole number"

Then Create a measure

Measure 2 = CALCULATE(AVERAGE('Sheet1$'[Column]),ALLEXCEPT('Sheet1$','Sheet1$'[Attribute]))
