Attached is a screenshot of what I am trying to replicate to display in a slightly different manner.
On the X axis of the graph you have a CustID, which is our unique value that represents a customer. On the Y axis you have a quantity of product sold. I want to somehow replace the CustID, which is a dimension, with a number. We want to be able to look at three different product categories and see how the sales distribution breaks out.
For instance, we want to see how much quantity Store 1 is selling, how much quantity store 2 is selling, how much quantity store 3 is selling. I am running into a few issues. The second screenshot shows the problem that I am running into.
I want to be able to graph all three product categories on the same graph. we have 500 ish stores with the product in them. so i want the x axis to be numbered 1-500 and then graph the quantity sold accordingly with no regard to the actual CustID, just the numbers 1-500. because 1 store could be selling a lot of product X, but less of product Y than another store is selling. I want all three product categories to be in the same graph, that are decending in order.
This is a very hard problem to explain, and I hope that the screenshots help communicate it better.
Please let me know if you need more clarity, which is very possible!
Can you post a tbwx, with mocked up data if necessary?
