In the column graph of sand dance, there is a sum function on the y-axis and I was wondering how it calculates

Re: sand dance

Hi @new2powerbi1,

 

For sanddance custom visual,  you can Sum by any column in the dataset. Per my understanding, when we select a numeric field, it sum up values grouped by multiple dimensions. But when selecting a Text field, it just group and classify values based on dimensions without doing mathematical calculation, having nothing to do with the "Sum" label.

 

For more advice, you could contact the custom visual development team.

 

Best regards,
