Re: Make a column not sum/count

Another unfortunate soul who can't get rid of the Sum of my data.  Why does this program insist on summing these numbers???  My chart is so simple. A date field and a value field.  I just want to plot them over time but this program inisists on summing my data.  I've tried everything posted here and it just doesn't work.

 

Any thoughts before I go find some other program?

 

Thanks

Re: Make a column not sum/count

So, I realized my error was caused by an incorrect data read in Power Query. I had input just the YEAR into a column which was being interpretted as a Whole Number rather than a Date. When I formatted my column to a DATE, I was able to filter by YEAR and that fixed the Sum Total problem.

 

I'd recommend taking a look at your data sets in Power Query, and making sure all your columns are formatted the way you need them to be - this will ensure it is reviewed properly.

Re: Make a column not sum/count

Click on the element you don't want to summarize, then go to the modeling tab, around the middle are the properties, select default summarization, don't summarize. Worked on Version: 2.65.5313.701

Make sure to change the column to decimal format then you will be able to change to don't sum.
