# Percentage bar chart

Hi guys,

I have the following data:

ID          Type          Reactivated

1               A                    0

2               A                    0

3               A                    0

4               A                    0

5               A                    0

6               B                    1

7               B                    0

8               B                    0

9               B                    0

10             B                    0

What I want to do with this data is to create a bar chart. As dimensions, I have Type and Volume(which is not included here, it's irrelevant). I have created it, but I want to change it a bit.

What I want to do is:

Incident - no Reactivation, therefore I would like the bar to show 100%

Request - one reactivation out of ten, therefore, I would like the bars to show 90% and 10%.

How could I do that?

Thank you so much for your help,

If I correctly understand your question then you want to represent values in percentage. For that you can go to the chart properties--Expressios Tab---Click the check box for Relative. It should work.

If Type and Reactivated are both Dimensions, the expression would be:

=count(ID) / count(TOTAL<Type>ID)

If Reactivated/Not Reactivated is created as two expressions, the expressions would be:

=count({<Reactivated={0}>}ID) / count(ID)

=count({<Reactivated={1}>}ID) / count(ID)

Hi Rob,

This is not doing what I want. With your formulas, my report looks like this:

Basically, instead of 41% I would like to have 100% because there was no Reactivated Incident. In the request part, I would like the orange bar + pink bar to add up to 100% as well.

How could I do that?

Thanks,

Hi,

Try like this

Data:

ID,

Type,

If(Reactivated = 1, 'Reactivated', 'Not Reactivated') AS Status

INLINE [

ID , Type,Reactivated

1, A,0

2 ,A , 0

3, A , 0

4 ,A,0

5, A , 0

6 ,B,1

7, B , 0

8 ,B,0

9, B , 0

10, B , 0];

Now in chart:

Dimension: Type, Status

Expression : =Count(ID)/Count(TOTAL <Type> ID)

and in Style Tab : Select Stacked

Regards,

Jagan.

Nothing changes and anyway, I don't want a stacked graph. I would like to see:

Incidents: 100% Not Reactivated

Incidents: 0% Reactivated

Requests: 90% Not Reactivated

Requests: 10% Reactivated

Basically, 3 separate bars because the number of Reactivated Incidents is 0

Thanks,
