Swapping X and Y axis in Line chart

Hi everyone. Could someone please explain how to swap X and Y axis in a regular line chart using standard visualization.

Here is how it looks and how it should look like:

Thanks in advance!

Are you sure you want a line chart? line charts aggregate value by category. You need the aggregation for a category like bars. If you want to draw specific y and x axis you might be looking for a scatter chart. You can there specify both axis by details (category).

Consider that the concept of "Values" in any visualization on Power Bi will always aggregate it.

Hi. You can edit the visualization changing your values to y-axis and y-axis to values. That's the only way.

Hope this helps,

Hi @ibarrau the problem is that the Yaxis (values) is aggregated and therefore the plot is wrong 😕

Hi @Alex_0201 ,

 

It is not supported for Power BI to swap axises or columns. You could submit the similar ideas:
