Week hierarchy not working

Hi, 

 

I am using this DAX function to create week numbers: 

"Uge", WEEKNUM([Date], 2),

Everything works fine, yet when I put it into a graph, it simply doesn't look good:

You can see I have to use a scroll bar in order to see the whole graph. I tried changing the Week number into text, it doesn't help. 

 

I can also see you can't change the data type from categorical to continuous, which I thought might be the problem initially:

Hi @AndrejBI 

From your statement, I think you have two kind of problems.

1. You want to see all values without using scroll bar in the visual.

2. When you drill down to week hierarchy, you couldn't see Type in X axis format.

If you use Year- Month- Week hierarchy in X axis, and you want your X axis show as below, you need to turn off concatenate labels in X axis format.

If you turn this function off, Type in X axis Format will disappear.

When you turn on concatenate labels, Type will appear.

So If you want your X axis show in this format, you couldn't use type function in X axis.

And due to you drill down your visual to week hierarchy, there will be at least 3 weeks for one month. So the visual will expand and you will need to use scroll bar to see all values in your visual.

Hi @AndrejBI ,

 

Comment is off topic but could you tell me how you structured the x-axis in the picture you are showing. I am struggling with that. I have data that is reported on a weekly basis, which I want to show in the same was as you are doing in your graph (the week number resets when a new year starts). In short, I am wondering how you structured the data you are showing on the x-axis of your graph. 

 

Hope you can help me. Thanks in advance!

@AndrejBI , if you create YYYYWW as a number you might get a continuous axis. You can get that with Date and numbers

 

Year week =[Year]*100 +[Week]
