## Size of bubbles in scatter plot

Is it somehow possible to create a scatter plot as a bubble chart with the size of the bubles depending on a value.

The solution has to be working on Qlik Cloud so using an extension is not an option.

I have found this but not sure how it works:

Hello,

you use 3 measure :

first measure calculates the x axis

the second measure calculates the y axis

the third calculates the size of the bubble

hope it helps,

From Chart Options select Scatter Plot,

Now If you want to change bubble size according to your 1sr Measure then use same Expression again as 3rd Expression.

In this case your bubble size will change according to Value of that Measure.

I'm not sure I understand you.

I like to have 1st measure (x axis) and 2nd measue (y axis).

Then the size of the buble is a 3rd measure (have nothing to do with 1st or 2nd measure.

you have to use a calculated dimension for the 1st measure (x axis).

Hi Kenneth,

In the properties panel, under measures, you'll notice the first listed measure corresponds to the x-axis.  The second measure will correspond to the y-axis.  The third measure you add will correspond with the bubble size.  Does this help?
