Hi,

I would like to hear some good ideas on how to solve my waterfall chart challenge.

I would like to show Gross Profit calculation - coming from Gross Sales minus Discounts minus COGS minus Freigth etc. results in Gross Profit, which I think would be great to show on a waterfall chart (tested in Excel). But in Targit this chart only works with 1 measure, while in my data set all GP calculation steps are separate measures. Appart from different measures, I only use date filter, no dimensions.

Any suggestions how to make this work?

Thanks.

Lenka

Hi Lenka,

It is true that at least one dimension is a requirement for TARGIT Waterfall charts to work. Therefore, when you only have measures, you must somehow transform these into dimension members.

One way to accomplish this is with Comparisons and Calculations.

In my example, I have three measures, which I would like to transform into three “dimension members” (called A, B and C).

To do this, I am adding a Comparisons (on the vertical axis) with three elements named A, B and C respectively. For each of these comparison elements, I am doing a “No selection”. This could be any dimension where you just leave the checkmark at “No selection”.

Next, I am adding a calculated column to show the correct measure value in the correct row.

Now, with these transformations, you actually have something you could turn into a Waterfall chart.
