shows wrong year



Please help me figure out why my year is shown wrong. I have created date Hierarchy and when I go to drill down by year it shows 2000 and 2500. I have attached screenshot


Hi @lavina03,


Based on your screenshot, you build your date and import it into chart properly. Please check your if it aggreate all data on Year 2000 only. And if you use numeric data type for Year, please select "Continuous" type in format for X-axis so that it will not use a big interval on X-axis. Please refer to link below:


Tutorial: Customize X-axis and Y-axis properties


Also I suggest you use text type for Year name column, it will have all years appear on axis. See my sample below:





You could try changing the data type of your year column to text.
