Line chart with overall total line

Hi all,

 

I'm creating a line chart with

  distinct series(country sales share)

  and

  a total line which depicts the share for all the countries whichever countries are filtered

 

The following is the Excel image.


1. Country series and overall total share.

2. US trend with Total line (Total share is for all the countries which are same values as No.1)

How can I create the PowerBI report as above?

I have an idea that

  add records with "total" country to the existing datasource (which is for each country)

  and

  specifiy the datasource on Line chart as if the "total" is one of the countries.

 

The datasource could be confusing, I would ask you for any better ideas.

 

Best regards,

Shinya

Hi, @shtak 

Please try the following steps:

1. Remove the use of the 'Legend' field and create separate metrics for each country and 'Toatl'

Japan line = CALCULATE(SUM('Table'[Share]),'Table'[Country]="Japan") 
US line = CALCULATE(SUM('Table'[Share]),'Table'[Country]="US") 
UK line = CALCULATE(SUM('Table'[Share]),'Table'[Country]="UK") 
Total line = CALCULATE(Average('Table'[Share]),ALL('Table'[Country])) 

2. New a field Parameter (Available in latest version of PowerBI Desktop)

3. Apply the parameter to Y-axis

Hi v-easonf-msft,

 

Thank you for your kind reply with a latest feature.

 

The field parameter feature is very interesting and useful.

In some cases, the feature is available, but this time, the series are actually prducts (I took up 

countries as easy examples, which lead to your solution), which change on an irregular base.

Hopefully I could avoid adding the series(field parameters).

 

Thanks,

Shinya

Hi, @shtak 

Is it convenient to provide a sample to cloud storage for further research?

Excuse me,,, the chart images were inconsistent.

The followings are correct ones.

 

Country shares with total share.
