    Average\S.D. ref. line on X axis - Histogram plot

      Hi,

       

      Couldn't get the answer elsewhere, probably easy to answer.

      I've made this Hist:

      I couldn't add an S.D or Avg. ref line for the X-axis, even though it is a green pill.

       

      Ideas?

       

      Thx,

          Hi Yoav,

           

          I have run into this before, it seems reference lines won't work with automatically binned fields. I believe they are read as Tableau differently than other continuous, numeric fields.

          If we look at the Sales pill, we see it's a measure:

           

          If we look at the Bin pill - we see it is actually a dimension, and Measure is grayed out:

           

          If you create your own numeric bin, make it a dimension, make it continuous...

           

          then you can use a reference line:

           

          Hope this helps,

          Jennifer
