Hi @bil1,


Did you mean the Year column add up automatically on Y-axis?


In chart, the Y-axis only supports numeric values, and it will be aggregated by default. In your scenario, change the Sum aggregation to Maximum for a test.



Besides, make sure that Year column is set to whole number type and didn't come in as Text. Otherwise, all you will get is a Count aggregation for a Text column in your visual.
