autosum unwanted

I "got data" from a Excel file into Power BI. The Excel file is very simple, just a few numbers in some columns. I organized the data in four tables in a single worksheet. When I loaded the worksheet in Power BI, the columns were "autosummed", yielding a single value (the total) for each column. What I want is to plot the individual values in each column, but I can't acces the individuals in Power BI, only the "autosum". How can I turn autosum off so the individuals are loaded into Power BI, not just the totals?

Re: autosum unwanted

You can turn off autosumming by going to the data model tab, clicking on the particular column and then going to the "Modeling" tab and then setting the "Default Summarization" to "Do Not Summarize".

 

If the data came in from Power Query as summarized, I'm not sure how you would have done that unless you had done a "Group By" or something similar in your query. If this is the case, can you post your query code by going into Query Editor, "View" in the ribbon and then "Advanced Editor" and just copy and paste the code.
