Hide names on axis to compare data



I am working through a report where we are trying to compare customers so we can work with them to show how they are stacking up. What I want to be able to is show only the name of the customer I have selected in the chart while showing other customers in the chart and how they compare. I have some examples below.

Tables of customers

CompanyCompany IDPay Rate
Jones IncCustomer 112.5
Apple ProductsCustomer 222.75
SamsungCustomer 318.65
Best BuyCustomer 413.25


View if Best Buy is selected:

View is Samsung is selected:

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

isn't there a solution yet ?

This might not be the easiest way...


but you could create a nearly identical query and only change the names of the cutomers. Then add that data to the chart and create a new slicer.


So you would end up with a chart with 2 slicers. One to display the company name and the other to display Customer X, Y, and Z.


Make sure you do not relate the queries or else the slicers will work on both sets.


Let me know if this is works


Can you please clarify this solution? Maybe some screenshots of what you meant.

This probably would work but I dont like the idea of having to have 2 slicers in order to show the data in one chart correclty.
