    Default summarize values by year and month


    summarize values by year and month
    Hi,

    I have sample data:

    2016-11-20 12
    2016-11-23 10
    2016-12-01 45
    2017-03-08 34
    2017-03-09 20
    2017-05-15 13

    How can I summarize it on column chart in such a way as values would grouped by month and year?

    November 2016: 22
    December 2016: 45
    March 2017: 54
    May 2017: 13

    ?

    Create a Pivot chart and group as required
    Just check that the dates are real dates ( right aligned in cell when no custom alignment is applied) and not text looking like dates
    Please,always use a relevant keyword thread title that describes what you are trying to do

    Hi, I'm reading in this forum some time, bit this is my first answer; so please have a little bear with me ...

    is a PQ solution OK?
    I added a new column with this formula:
    = Date.MonthName([Datum]) & " " & Text.From(Date.Year([Datum]))
    where "Datum" is the name of the column with the date (1st Col.). The name of this column is "MMMM YYYY"
    Then I grouped this column by List.Sum([Number])

    Hope I could help a little bit and my english is "readable".
