Creating a chart with user defined axis

Hi


Can anyone help with this query? I need to produce a scatter which relies on the user defining x and y axis (using slicers) - is there any way to do this without creating a summarised table of data from the original?  The data is formatted a little like below:

 

Category             Score

1                          5

2                          4

3                          3

3                          2

4                          3

4                          4

5                          3

6                          4

6                          6

 

I need the user to pick a category 1-6 for 'x axis' and then a category 1-6 for 'y axis' which then plots the score on a scatter.

 

Thanks for any help

Hi @MrBenn,

 

With current table format, it might not possible to create such a scatter chart. You may need to generate a new calculated table with a new structure.

Test3 =
FILTER (
    CROSSJOIN (
        FILTER ( Test2, Test2[Name] = "Actual" ),
        SELECTCOLUMNS (
            FILTER ( Test2, Test2[Name] = "Expected" ),
            "Name2", Test2[Name],
            "Phase2", Test2[Phase],
            "Score2", Test2[Score]
        )
    ),
    Test2[Phase] = [Phase2]
)

Hi @MrBenn,

 

I get below result if directly placing [category] onto X-axis and Y-axis, and plotting [Score] into Details.

Is that what you want? If not, would you please show us your desired output? If you want to show total score per Category in scatter chart, I think you should create a summarised table.

Hi Yuliana


Thank you for your reply, but I wasn't very clear and this isn't what I was looking for.  I have the data table below and the scatter chart I'd need.  Does this help?  I'm thinking I may have to use parameters, but I'm not sure how to do this.
