Hi @A_ksh ,

 

The hierarchy of the x-axis in the chart you have given is Quarter-Month-Day, and you can set up the same hierarchy as shown below.

Due to the design of PBI Desktop this is the closest you can get to an excel chart.

Hi @A_ksh ,

 

According to your description, here are my steps you can follow as a solution.

(1) This is my test data.

vtangjiemsft_0-1699584030605.png

(2) We can create a calculated column.

Year = YEAR('Table'[Date])

(3) Then the result is as follows.

Thank you so muc for the reply 

But as you can see in excel line chart below we can have fixed x axis from january to december and it gives you option to choose year and different values of C10, C14 etc. so i select lets say 2021 and 2022 it gives me 2 lines of same C14 over the span of january to december, so that its easy to compare on month basis. 

But in power BI it just extends the x-axis for 2 different year and even if i create table for month or select x axis for month it provides sum value for that month not the individual values of everyday. But in excel even though x axis is from Jan to Dec it still provides you daily data and makes graph more smooth. 

here is the comparison of 2 same data in excel and in power bi.

This is graph in Excel.

This is graph in Power Bi. 




Hi @A_ksh ,

 

(1)We can create measures.

 

_c10 = SUM('Table'[C10])
_c14 = SUM('Table'[C14])
_c16 = SUM('Table'[C16])

 

...

(2)Creating Field Parameter.

(3)Then the result is as follows.

Thank you for the reply but the Y axis data is showing monthly agrregated value whereas i have daily data and want daily data to be displyed instead of SUM data of month even though i have selected x  axis to be month. 

Is there you can help me on this. 

Hi @A_ksh ,

 

If you want to display daily data, set the x-axis as shown below.

But i want X-Axis to be only from Jan-Dec as shown in above excel graph but even though the X-axis is month basis i want data to be of daily basis. For differerent years i can have years in legend so i can choose year. 

Also Can we connect on Google meet or somewhere else so that we can discuss this because i am stuck on this for weeks now and i see no solutions. 

Here is my email id - akashpandey9299@gmail.com, Please send a message if you will be able to connect Gmeet or somewhere else.

Hi @A_ksh ,

 

If you want the x-axis to be displayed in a date hierarchy, set the x-axis as shown below.

You can explore in-depth details about your data by using the drill-down, drill-up, and expand features on your visual.

Refer : Drill mode in the Power BI service - Power BI | Microsoft Learn

But you see 2016 and 2017 data is coming on x axis on your graph, i want x axis to be set from Jan-Dec and differerent year data should come differently. 

And if i drill up/down data the comes agreegated which not ideal for me, i want even though the x axis is set data should be of everyday. 

And please if you have time can we connect ? because i feel problem is very specific and you can udnerstand once we connect. 

Thank you in advance.

Sorry but i tried and it is not helping, excel provide 2 legend option where i can select different different years and it will show Value of lets say C10 for 2 different year with different line, doing that in power bi just expands the x-axis for 2 years and give continoues graph. 

I want to recreate same what is there in excel and showed in my question.

Sample data with different years would help more but with this data :

Date on the x-axis, individual measures on the y-axis.  If you want a quick chart just select the c10, c14 etc and add them to the y-axis

--

Or you can unpivot the C-columns and write one measure
