"The groups in the primary axis and the secondary axis overlap" error when creating stacked chart

Hi all;

 

Trying to create a stacked chart, and I'm getting this error.  The measure I'm displaying is just a straight sum of data from the fact table, and when I substitute other measures constructed in the same way I don't receive an error.  I know this is a little vague, but has anyone encountered anything like this before?  The only thing that's a little unique is that the values are a combination of positive and negative totals.....most of my other measures are strictly positive.

 

Thanks,

Jason

Hi @jmillar 

Generally, to slove this error, please follow the suggestion below:

The groups in the primary axis and the secondary axis overlap. Groups in the primary axis can't have the same keys as groups in the secondary axis.

It is usually a transient issue. This will typically happen when you are moving groups from rows to columns. In this case, the error should disappear when you finish moving all the groups. If you still see the message, try switching fields between the rows and columns or the axis legend or removing fields from the visual.

 

If it is not sloved, 

Could you show the an screenshot of what columns/measures are added to the visual?

Aslo, you could add these columns/measures in a table visual and show that with me to let me know some example data.

 

Best Regards
Maggie
