Simple Q about Stacked bar charts

Why do they refuse to sort on the stacked total? I have sort set to Y-value desecending (biggest to smallest)

Simple Q about Stacked bar charts


Y-Value works for the first expression, but not the second. I'd recommend you to create a new expression, uncheck the "Bar" tick int he Expressions tab, that sums both expressions, and set this one at the top, so the Y-Value is global. You can set this expression in the Sort by Expression option in the Sort tab of the chart properties.

Hope that makes sense.

Re: Simple Q about Stacked bar charts

Hi ,

i'm working with Qlikview11.20 and i was trying to sort in stacked bar chart based on y-value as descending order.

But in Sort tab there is no option like sort by Y- Value. Please friends give me some suggestions on this.


Thanks in Advance
