## Waterfall Chart Offest Using Dimensions

Here is a simple example showing how to create a waterfall chart with a single expression and dimensions (within a drill down group)

I hope its helpful and I would love to hear your comments

ok thanks, useful.

however, how would you add a "total" bar ?

thx for your help

Luminary

You could add the expression sum(total Value) although this bar will appear across all dimensions.

This could be made to look better by using a reference line (presentation tab) as the total using the calculation above.

Usually waterfall charts are made up by writing several expressions with a single where as this example looks to use a single expression allowing the dimension to be flexible and in this case grouped into a drill down. Depending on your needs you may find a simpler waterfall chart example suits your requirements more.

Another more complex option would be to add a total dimension row into the data which can be picked up by the chart.

This was useful.

not sure if it helps anyone now but you can add a totals bar by adding some dimension tables like this:

for example

then change the dimension to [1 Level R] and the bar offset expression becomes:

=if([1 Level R] = 'Total',0,sum(total Value) - sum(Value)- rangesum(above(sum(Value),1,RowNo()-1)))

something along these lines should get you the Total bar on the waterfall chart

Thanks Jonathan!
