We report the modulation in charge ordering structure of ferroelectric YbFe2O4 by magnetic ordering from x-ray diffraction experiments and magnetic measurements. The incommensurate modulation was observed on (n n 3m+3/2) type diffraction signal around magnetic ordering temperature where n and m are integer. The modulation was also observed on charge ordering signal, indicating spin-charge coupling. The incommensurate modulation was observed only on (n/3 n/3 3m) type charge ordering signal. This selectivity can be explained by polar charge ordering models.
