Scatter plot for separate measurements

Hi,

I would like to simply replicate a common Excel feature in Power BI.

I have two separate sets of measurements, lets say:

x1 = [1,2,3]; y1 = [2,5,7] and x2 = [2.2, 4.5, 5.6, 3] and y2 = [5,8,6,2].

Can I make a scatter plot with multiple series (in this case two) just as in Excel?

 

Regards,

Andrea

Hi @andreaspidey

 

You may drag the X and Y to X/Y Axis and category to Details as below. Here is the video about Scatter chart for your reference.

Re: Scatter plot for separate measurements

Dear Cherie,

unfortunately your answer is not fully clear to me.

Regarding the original problem, i.e. plotting in a scatter plot as two different sets x1=[1,2,3], y1=[2,5,7] and x2=[2.2,4.5,5.6,3], y2=[5,8,6,2], are you suggesting to create to following table x=[1,2,3,2.2,4.5,5.6,6.3] and y=[2,5,7,5,8,6,2]  and category=[1,1,1,2,2,2,2] and plotting them as mentioned in your post by dragging x and y in "X Axis" and "Y Axis", respectively and category in "Details"?

 

If so, it is not working in my case. I watched the video already, also before writing here, but really I cannot understand how to apply that instructions pratically.

 

Thanks,

Regards,

Andrea
