2 thoughts on “Week 32: Can you create step area charts?”
I wasn’t really able to replicate the area chart; when I tried to use area in the mark card, the envelope line was connected by linear type rather than step type. After cheating by checking the report file, realized this has been implemented by two measures (prev sales + sales calc).
But one thing I don’t understand is how to decide the order in which the dots were connected. Didn’t see how the step type path was specified anywhere. Do you mind giving me some help here?
Thanks a lot.
this one make mi break some sweat…
I did it but i can’t say yet why the area graph became “squared” in certain situation – i got to go by trials 🙁
