Area graph -Power BI 101

What do I need to do in Power BI to show this table as an area graph with an X axis of date and Y axis of value, with each of the categories stacked in value.  I want to be able to show total and drill down into each category if necessary.

This is straightforward once you have brought your data into a usable format (by unpivoting the date columns)

Thats brilliant thanks!

Is it possible to manage more complex scenarios. For example if I had multiple projects in each category all with theire on row and calendarised costs):

 

Project 1, Cat 1....

Project 2 Cat 1...

Project 3 Cat 2...

Project 4 Cat 3...

Project 5 Cat 1...

....

....

 

And also is it possible to deal with the even more complex scenario of:

 

Project 1 Cat 1 High ....

Project 2 Cat 1 Low ...

Project 3 Cat 2 Current ...

 

etc?

 

 

Sorry for asking!!!
