Hi All,

 

Another newbie question I'm afraid!

 

I was trying to create a butterfly chart in VA, I manged to create the chart using graph builder but got stuck at defining measures. My data is very basic:

 

Staff_ID, Gender, Grade

 

I want one side of the chart to show male and the other female. How do I create a male and female measure? (Grade will be the category)

 

In MS Power BI I would just do calculate(counta(staff_id),gender="male") and that would create a measure that shows a sum off all males based on the context of the chart/table.

 

Many thanks

 

Phil

Phil, I am trying to visualize your data. So the grade will be the categorical value like an 'A', 'B', 'C', etc. or is a number that is treated as a category?  Would you please give me a sample of couple of lines of the data? Also, when you say you used the Graph Builder, did you use the Butterfly example with no changes?  Thank you, Shannon

Hi,

 

Yes the grade will be categorical 

 

A sample of the data could be

 

Staff_ID, Gender, Grade

1,M,G10

2,M,G8

3,F,G9

4,F,G1

 

Yes I did pick the butterfly example with no changes.

 

Thanks
