Secondary Y-Axis for Multiple Line and Bar Chart


I have a graph with 4 lines and 1 bar value.

3 of the lines and the bar chart hover to approximately the same value, and so a second Y-axis isn't necessary to differentiate between those.

I want to add that fourth line chart whose values only reach about a fifth of those of the bar chart and so I need a secondary Y-axis for THIS value alone.

Currenly I know how to create a secondary Y-axis but when I do it applies to ALL the lines, or to the bar chart, while I want it to apply only for 1 line.

Is this possible?


Hi @ofeklevy,


By default, the secondary Y-axis option applies to all lines in a chart. Currently, it is not available to make it only apply to one specific line. I would suggest you submit your request at this page: If this idea is mentioned by many users, our product team will consider adding this feature in later release.

Thank you. This was very helpful.


Not possible. It's all or none. Of course you could use an R visual but your ask isn't available out of the box.

Unfortunately I read that R visuals through PBI Desktop only process 150,000 rows, while my data set is much bigger.
