Re: how to use measure as X-axis in line chart

Hi @ddtblar,

You cannot use a Measure in X-axis. For any column to be used as an axis value, it should be a category. i.e. You should be able to group your entry data based on that column.


So in this case, since this column is a Measure, try to create a column that has these values and can be used to group your data by that. 


Take inspiration from Pivot Table option to achieve this...
