drilling down visual concatenating labels

Hi All,


Recently i observed that when i'm using text values on X-Axis then upon drilling down parent category is appended with next level, tried concatenate lables turning on and off but nothing seems to be working. It's bit urgent please help me as it's not looking good. However if i put Month Year on X-Axis then it's working fine. Ulitmately i mean to say that there is some problem when putting text values on X-Axis.

Hi all,

I also am experiencing this issue. I have made sure that "Concatenate Labels" has been turned off for the x-axis. I have the March 2020 version of PBI.

Has anyone had any success resolving this issue when drilling down?

Hi @Evan4 . I am running into this problem as well. Did you figure out how to not have the first category labels show after the drill-down?

Hi @Anonymous ,


From the article, we know when a visual has a hierarchy, you can drill down to reveal additional details. More than one text value on X axis can generate hierarchy, or one date field which has a hierarchy can also use drill down feature.

@v-xicai sorry i already have hierarchy and drill down is working perfectly fine. The problem is when i'm at highest level i see only single label, but as soon as i drill down then parent level label and current level labels are coming together, tried turning on and off concatenate label option of X-axis but nothing seems to be working. I want only respective level label to be shown when i drill down. Please refer to attached image. On Next level i want to see only ENI, IMA and IMO.Labels Getting Concatenated.PNG
