## Implementing Bar Chart with Uniquely Grouped Dimensions

Hello,

I am attempting to recreate this bar chart that was originally made in excel. The chart has 3 different expressions for each column showing a 6 month avg, a summed total for previous month, and a summed total for current month. The chart is stacked by the financial class (denoted by orange, grey, and yellow).

I was able to get this far with the below three expressions but I am not sure how to go about implementing the dimensions so that it shows the same type of stacked bar chart above. When I add my desired dimension to the chart, I either get each expression for each value in the dimension, or I get the 3 expressions stacked for each dimension value.

Expression 1 (blue): =num(sum({<_M={6,5,4,3,2,1}>} [Payments])/6,'\$#,##0')

Expression 2 (red): =sum({<_M={6}>} [Payments])

Expression 3 (green): =sum({<_M={7}>} [Payments])

Any help towards recreating the first chart would be greatly appreciated!

I created a dimension called period, you would want to use members from your calendar.

Per:

Per

'PG Avg'

'201712'

'201801'

];

Data:

FinClass,Mth,Amt

1,6,100

1,5,100

1,4,100

1,3,100

1,2,100

1,1,105

1,7,100

2,7,50

2,6,50

2,5,50

2,4,50

2,3,50

2,2,50

2,1,50

3,7,25

3,6,25,

3,5,25

];

The chart expressions uses an IF statement:

=If(Per = 'PG Avg',Sum({<Mth={'6','5','4','3','2','1'}>} Amt)/6,If(Per='201712',Sum({<Mth={'6'}>} Amt),Sum({<Mth={'7'}>} Amt)))

The Background Color definition:

=If(FinClass = 1,Red(),If(FinClass = 2,DarkGray(),Yellow()))
