Can't find grouping function

Hi,

 

I want to group together categories into custom categories, as is shown in this link (https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/power-bi/desktop-grouping-and-binning). But when I right-click on the visual, I'm unable to find this option.

 

I should also note that my data is connected via PowerBI datasets through an Alteryx connection. Could this be the reason why?

Thanks,

You create the grouping using a calculated column in the field list under the table, not the visual itself. You then set the axis to this new calculated column.

 

MyGroup = // This is exactly what the grouping function does, but this gives you more control over logic
SWITCH( TRUE(),
    [Col1] = "This" && [Col2] = "That", "ThisThat", // && is AND
    [Col1] = "That" || [Col2] = "This", "ThatThis", // || is OR
    "SomethingElse" // This is the value if no other conditions is met
)

 

 

Thanks for your suggestion @jsh121988.

 

But I can't create calculated columns either, I can only create measures. Again, I think this may be due to the fact that the data is coming from a PowerBI dataset.

Will this work for measures as well?
