Grouping By Parameter on Combination Chart
« on: 10 Jun 2021 01:53:26 pm »
Greetings! Totally new to Cognos Analytics, working my way through my first report.

I've got a Combination Chart that's showing a value. I've got a parameter for company division (multiselect).

What I Want It To Do: When I select more than one company division, add a new line to the combination chart.

What It Does: Sums the values of the company divisions.

Please help?

Hi,

What data items are you currently using for the columns and the lines? There is a dropdown just above the drop targets for the fields in the visualization - you can switch between Column and Line. Have you tried using the company division item as the data item that drives the line color chart?

Cheers!

MF.
Meep!
