Stack columns

Hello, everyone.

I'm new to using Power BI and I'm taking my first steps.


I would like to stack these columns by day by placing the cities for day 1 on top of each other. The same for day 2, and so on.

 

I'm just working out how it looks. In other words, I'm seeing the different invoices by city for day 1, and then for day 2.
I want to see the different invoices by stacking the 3 different cities, for day 1, then for day 2, also stacking the three cities, and so on.


How should I do this? Can anyone help me?

@Arrelialp Sorry it is not clear, maybe it will be easier if you put a sample pbix file and share it using one drive/google drive. Make sure to remove the sensitive information before sharing. Thanks!

@Arrelialp what is the issue? seems like you have more than 3 cities for day 1. what you are referring to 3 cities only? Currently it is showing all the cities for the selected day.

It's showing the invoices for the selected day, but I want it to AGGREGATE the invoices for a city. Put them all together. Then group together the invoices from the 2nd city, placing them all together, and finally from the 3rd city, placing them all together. Each city will have a different colour, showing the slices that correspond to the invoices.
Have you understood what I'm trying to say or not yet?

P. S.: I only have 3 cities. What you're seeing are the different invoices per city.

@Arrelialp ok, you have to explain what is not working? Share some sample data with the expected output.

As you can see in the image, I have different colours for the invoices on a particular day of the month (in this case it's day 1). This image is not what I want.

I want to group all three cities together in a stacked column (each with its own colour) so that I can see the different invoices for the 3 cities for day 1.

In other words, the stacked column will have the 1st city with the respective invoices. Then, in the same column, the 2nd city, now in a different colour, will have its invoices. And finally the 3rd city, third colour, in the same column, with its invoices.

@Arrelialp yes you can only have one column in the legend. This is how that visual works.

So putting the City column in the legend field doesn't work

@Arrelialp you have to use the city column in the legend well. Thanks!

Hello, thank you very much for your reply.

 

The legend only lets me enter one field, either Invoice_ID or City. It doesn't allow both at the same time
