Hello Experts Exchange
I am developing a report in SSRS that has a chart, when the chart has only a few categories going along the horizontal axis the chart looks fine, however when there is a lot of categories the chart gets very messy and unable to read the data.

Is it possible to have a expression so if the categories go over 5 then the horizontal axis is hidden?  

If so where would the expression go and what would it look like?

Regards

Make sure the Properties pane is visible (press F4 if it isn't).

Click on the Chart Axis.

Go to the Properties pane - Visible. Click on the drop-down arrow and select "<Expression...>"

Change the "Set expression for: Visible" to

=CountDistinct(Fields!myField.Value)<6

where myField is your category field.

Hello Phillip
I have just tried your steps and it did not work my chart still looks crushed with data.

I set the visible properties to this;
=CountDistinct(Fields!Level_3.Value)<6

Is there something else I should try?

Hello Phillip
I found the right expression that is needed to make the axis visible and hidden.

The expression is;
=IIF(CountDistinct(Fields!Level_3.Value)<6,"True","False")

Thanks for your help.
