Distribution plot with 1 dimension


I'm playing around with the distribution plot chart a bit.

Trying to get it right to show a distribution plot chart with the range of values for that 1 dimension.

It seems with the distribution plot, the 1st dimension is the calculation, 2nd the name and then the measure.

But if I wanted to have it similar to a bar chart, 1 dimension splits the names but then

the measure shows the min/max (as the same with the distribution plot & unlike the bar chart)

How would one do this?

Playing around with data like this just to understand the chart conceptually

(i.e. data can be changed/manipulated)


LOAD * Inline [

DimA, DimB, Amount

A, Archie, 50

A, Betty, 2000

A, Caz, 1500

A, Dugghead, 1800

A, Archie, 100

A, Archie, 200

A, Archie, 400

Re: Distribution plot with 1 dimension

I think the amount of data rows is just too small...


Re: Distribution plot with 1 dimension


You should be able to do this with 4 lines of data

(however the distribution chart forces you to take 2 dimensions)

DimA, Amount

Archie,  50

Archie, 200

Betty, 100

Betty, 300

Should display

Archie         50 ----------  200

Betty                   100 -------------300

Re: Distribution plot with 1 dimension

..but it doesn't since it uses GetHyperCubeStackData method. Maybe it's just wrong implemented.
