Percentages in bar chart


I know this topic has been covered before, but I am unable to get my answers from any of the other forums.

But could anybody please explain to me in detail on how to change bar charts to show percentages?

I am still pretty new to Qlik Sense, so still getting to know how to work all the different coding syntaxes.

I have charts that have a numeral count as a measure, mixed with either 1 or 2 dimensions of which both are non numeral values.


It would be greatly appreciated if someone would be able to explain to me how I turn this chart into a 100% stacked barchart.

I have also tried downloading the anychart extension, however this extension only allows me to use multiple measures to stack the chart, not multiple dimensions.

Can you give us some sample data to work with ?



Unfortunately I work with confidential data. I have looked if if can send some sort of data graph, but none of the data that I work with is available for public sharing.

To break it down in text:

Dimension 1: Performance scores (1,2,3,4,5)

Dimension 2: Movement type (No move, lateral move, promotion etc..)

Measure 1: ID based on the count hereof.

This is presented in the stacked barchart as seen in the picture of my first post.

Each bar represents a performance score, either 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5.

The colors in the bar represent the movement type.

And the ID is measured to represent to population.

I would like to see if possible percentages per color in each bar, or in case this is impossible, just see the bar reach a 100% with each movement type being measured relatively to the 100%

Thank you for taking the time with helping finding a solution!
