Ribbon Chart Gridlines

Hello,

 

I have a ribbon chart but in order to turn on Gridlines, on the Visual tab, Gridlines is grayed out. It states "to use these formatting options, add a field containing date or numeric data to the axis section of the Visualizations pane".

 

The X-axis has Year, Month, Date while the Y-axis has record count, the Legend is Status. Does anyone know how to get gridlines showing?

 

Thank you in advance for your time!

Hi , @luvagoldenk9 

I test it in my side , i find that if you put the several Hierarchy fields on the "X-axis", the gridlines may not highlight display.

You can try to click "Drill Up" icon to see if the gridlines highlight:

Because the Month field do not meet the gridlines highlight need.

 

You need to add a field containing date or numeric data to the axis section of the Visualizations pane.

You can also put a filed like a number .

Hello Anyia,

 

Thank you for that clarification and quick response. Unfortunately all the X-axis fields are text (not numeric) so that makes perfect sense why the numeric gridlines don't show.
