Column Values for Column Chart

Hi,

 

I have some financial data but to show the values in a column chart, I have to make them "Sum of ....", so all my legends have Sum of at the start of them. If i use another measure, it values out at 1 for each month. How can I remove this so it is just LY Month, Budget Month etc..?

This is my visualisations field (Sum of Sort is my conditional column for ordering the months correctly):

This is my Query Editor (in case it is just a formatting problem) with some of the variables, thanks

Hi @DTaylor888 ,

 

In the Column Values section where you've dragged the columns into, just double-click on the column names there and you can overwrite how they are displayed.

FWIW, generally-accepted best practice is that you should always create explicit measures for each of your calculations, even if it's just a basic sum of a column. For example:

LY Month = SUM(yourTable[LY Month])
