Two y-axes for the same chart in SAP Analytics Cloud(without using bar and line combination)

Hi All,

I have been trying to plot total spend percentage spend on the same chart, as my spend value is in millions and % values is below 100 my graph does not look good. I do not want to go for Bar and line combination as line graph tends to mislead. Is there any other way in SAP to plot data with two different Y-Axis(at least anyway to remove the line joining the data points).

    Yes this is how you can do that

    • Open a story with Combination Column & Line chart in it
    • Set one measure in Column Axis, one measure in Line Axis and one dimension in Dimensions
    • Untick Y Axes Overlap, find some positive values are displayed under horizontal axis

    • Hi Ashutosh,

      My query was regarding use of dual axis for bar/column graph. Right now we are using combination of bar/line graph with dual axis. But we don't want two show bar and line combination. Instead we want to use Bar and Market combination ( since the line graph indicates trend and we don't intend to display any trend among the different dimension values).

      There are two things which can fulfill my requirement

      1. Combination of Bar and Marker chart

      2. Cluster/group bar graph with dual axis.

      Is any of the two possible in SAC?

      Thanks in Advance>

    Hi Pratik,

    Combination of bar and marker is possible, if you want both on the same axis. Refer attached.

    A bar/column with dual axis is not available as standard chart. You may choose to use R visualization if that fits your usecase.
