bar chart sizes not correct

Hi there,

 

I have a problem that seems to me as a bug in the PowerBI chart visual.

 

I have a column that is defined as a decimal number. Then I have a measure that sums this column and is defined as a whole number (in the Modelling tab).

 

When I create a bar chart for the measure, the result in the chart is strange. Both 18 Jan and 19 Jan have the value of 12, however in the chart the size of the bars are different. Also the bar height difference between 2 and 3 and 3 and 4 is different. Look at the data table below.

 

Has anyone experienced this before?

hi, the difference is because 18-01 is 11.5 and 19 is 12.0

 

The Format is only to display but not change the Data Type.

 

If you need the 11.5 transform in 12, you have to round up engagements Measure.

 

Engagements = ROUNDUP(SUM(FactTweetEngagement[EngagementsDiff]),0)

Can you add the labels to show the value of each bar ?

Thanks

Yep, here it is. It seems that the measure in the chart is not used as "whole number".

Hi @sash,

Do you use the latest version of Power BI Desktop(2.42.4611.901)? Would you mind sharing me sample data of  your table and show me the formula of the measure?


Thanks,
Lydia Zhang

Re: bar chart sizes not correct

Hi,

 

I'm using version 2.42.4611.701 64-bit (Januar 2017).

 

I've attached the sample data (zipped CSV file) here: https://1drv.ms/u/s!AoJ9FEKQgrq6hH12UhV34O39xoDB

 

The column EngagementsDiff is defined as Sum, data type Decimal Number.

 

The measure Engagements is defined as:  

SUM('fact_TweetEngagement'[EngagementsDiff])

The format is defined as "Whole Number".
