Using line chart - keeps summarizing data

I know this answer is staring at me in the face.  Why when I have an unsummarized value I want to show on either a line chart or bar chart does it summarize?  The axis is a day and then I have one value - a weight.  Here are some visuals and thanks for the information

Re: Using line chart - keeps summarizing data

Hey,

 

please check if your column "WeighInDate" is of data type "datetime" or "date" basically I would recommend to change it to date.

 

Mark the visual, switch to the Format options and check the settings for "X-Axis". I guess the value for the type equals to "continuous" switch it to "categorical" and you will get what you want.

 

Hopefully this is what you are looking for
