Need help in Creating X-axis in Line Chart.



Please help.


I have a dataset where in i have to work with temperature and time. I have time on x axis and temperature on Y axis, i want to scale the Y axis and represent values in the interval of 5 degree but when i deploy the temperature on line graph it shows 0, 20, 40. please let me know how to fix this.


I want the line graph to show the temperature as the time on the x axis changes and i want the line to progressively move connecting each data point according to the time stamp. like how the graph usually moves.


Thanks & Regards,

You can modify the Y-axis scale in the "Format" section of the "Visualizations" pane in Power BI Desktop. To change the axis scale to an interval of 5 degrees, follow these steps:

  1. Right-click the Y-axis in the line graph and select "Format axis".
  2. In the "Format" section, go to the "Values" section.
  3. Set the "Minimum" value to 0 and the "Maximum" value to the highest temperature value rounded up to the nearest multiple of 5.
  4. Set the "Major tick mark unit" to 5.
  5. Apply the changes and see the Y-axis show the temperature in 5-degree intervals.

By doing this, you can have a clear representation of the temperature change over time on the line graph.

Hi Jaweher899,


Thank you for the reply.


I didn't find any option in the values to scale the Y axis.Power bi snap.png
