Hi, 

 

I have 76 data in my Excel but the box and whisker I created shows only 56 sampled. This affects the median results. Anyone can help?

HI @zuozk123,

According to your snapshots, it seems like your category fields contain a few duplicate values. When you use on charts, visual only display distinct category field and will aggregate its records. (current you can't cancel this summarize on charts)

You can use your fields on table visual and right-click fields to choose 'do not summary' option to force display all records without aggregate.

Hi @zuozk123,

It seems like your records have been summarizing by your category fields, you can consider adding an index column to your table and use it on visual to keep all records.
In addition, you can also try to write a measure to manually calculate with table row count instead of aggregate functions.
