my data model relationship is datetable is linked with the above table by Date.
I want to create a line chart base on the Actual column. However, there are different datatype.

How can I achieve this for example, 
when i click on units "No", the chart should shiw line chart base on unit "No" on y-axis and date on the x-axis. the same applies to units "date" but with units "Text" is should be blank

Hi , @timEalll 

According to your description, you want to "when i click on units "No", the chart should shiw line chart base on unit "No" on y-axis and date on the x-axis. the same applies to units "date" but with units "Text" is should be blank".

Here are the steps you can refer to :
(1)This is my test data:

(2)We can create a measure like this:

Measure = var _slicer = SELECTEDVALUE('Table'[Units])
return
IF(_slicer ="Text", BLANK() , IF( _slicer ="date" , COUNTROWS('Table') , SUMX('Table' , VALUE('Table'[Actual]))))

 

Then we can put the measure on the visual and the result is as follows:

If this method does not meet your needs, you can provide us with your special sample data and the desired output sample data in the form of tables, so that we can better help you solve the problem. (You can also upload you sample .pbix [without sensitive data] to the OneDrive and share with the OneDrive link to me ! )

Thank you for your time and sharing, and thank you for your support and understanding of PowerBI!
