# waterfall chart/similar chart to show  yearly trend  with 3 measures

Hi I am trying to show this below data in waterfall way, but the extensions have only 1 measure limitation. Can we do this using regular barchart or any other way?

here is my sample data

 year measure1 measure2 measure3 2015 74k 10989 4908 2016 74k 2090 578 2017 71k 3789 3489

I would like to see as in below image or any other similar way(Like all blues are measure 2 for 3 years, ).  Is this possible? thanks much.

however i could not load my excel data ! !from my c drive for the dynamic waterfall.

and I  tried static way , I think i see group what i want but i want different colors for different measures. which i couldn't achieve.

please see attached qvf. if you can tell me what i have done incorrect.

also do you have more info on multiplier and offset concept. i didnt understand clearly how set up and why?

If you are using 3.2 you should be able to set your custom colors if you set your measure as a master item.

The offset is what makes your measure display above or below the 0 axis.

I'll have a play with it tomorrow and see what I can get going

Thankyou, I tried this  for color expression .no luck.

if(Dim = 'Offset',ARGB(0,0,0,0),

RGB(204,102,119), RGB(68,119,170), RGB(26, 188, 156)))

almost there with the colour.  you need to use the wildmatch function to identify the colour as you have year also in your name.  This should fix the colour

if(Dim = 'Offset',ARGB(0,0,0,0),

RGB(204,102,119), RGB(68,119,170), RGB(26, 188, 156)))

The multiplier detirmines if your value axis start point based on the last value.  1=Ontop, -1 means Below, 0=same level

I hope this helps.
