## Sense Scatterplot - sorting x axis values descending order

It must be possible, just haven't figured out how to make it happen.

Have 1 dimension (company) and 3 measures.

1 on X axis, 1 on Y axis and the 3rd sizes the bubble on the scatterplot diagram

What I'm trying to do

Y axis value - bigger number is better - ascending is preferred.

X axis value - smaller number is better - descending is preferred

- so upper right is better and lower left is worse.

However, the chart is sorting X axis in ascending order -  my users have asked to sort as per above.

How can this be done.

And haven't figured it out - any guidance would be appreciated!

Thank you

Hi,

What i understand is you want to reverse the axis values. If yes then try below.

1. Multiply your expression with -1.

2. For the same expression, Select number formatting as number and switch off the "Formatting Simple". Once you do this it will give you an option to change the formatting. Replace existing formatting with "#,##00;#,##00".

Hopw this work around will help.

Worked perfectly.  Had tried the x -1 but hadn't thought through using the formatting to reverse the sign reversal a second time.

Many thanks!

Even I got this idea from some old Qlikview Post...
