Change x axis label name - Month/Year

Hello everyone,

 

How would I change/customise the x-axis label e.g.

 

Oct 2021- Sept 2022

Nov 2021- Oct 2022

 

I dont believe grouping works here as I tried doing it and it works only for Oct 2021- Sept 2022 but no option is left for Nov 2021- Oct 2022?

 

Thank you.

Hi @anony711

 

This looks like getting the 12 month running total for every month, right? Assume you have a Date column, you can add a column to have those labels based on the Date column. For example, 

Period = FORMAT(EOMONTH([Date],-12)+1,"mmm yyyy") & " - " & FORMAT([Date],"mmm yyyy")

Sort this new column by "YearMonthNumber" column, then use it on the X-axis. Create a measure to calculate the value you want to put on Y axis.
