Line chart - actual Values adds up

I have yearly data Date wise. Every date have more then one values. I am trying to put this data in line chart but while entering the data the Line chart is adding the values from each dates and showing as one added value. I want to show the individual real values in the chart not the added values. Kindly help.

 

Regards

Ashok

Is there some indicator to uniquely indicate the 3 values?  I'm not sure this will be easy in Power BI. In Excel you could nest the date and the indicator on the x axis. In Power BI you may need to do the following

1.  Concatonate the date and indicator in a calc colum

2.  Create a sort order column for this calc column so it sorts as you want

3 place the calc column on the x axis. 

 

That is my my best guess

What output are you expecting if there are 3 separate sales values on the one day?  Are you expecting to see the date repeated 3 times?

Dear Matt,

Exactly, I want the dates to repeat three times. Rather then adding all three values from the same date and showing that added value in the line graph I want all three values should show.

 

Thanks

Dear Matt,

Thank you for your support.

I am not using any indicator as of now but i will work on the steps you suggested.

Don't you think this situation is something very common and we normally have many data which are collected on the same day and same time??

Thanks Again.

I can't think of a reason I would want to see this in a chart the way you describe. Maybe I am missing something
