Accumulated area chart with time and value on x-axis

I'm trying to create a chart which seems like it should be simple, but I can't make it happen. What I want is for the x-axis to display days of the month, and with a value on the y-axis. In addition, the value should be split up by values in my hierarchy - for example, technology (wind, hydro, geo, solar). The values display as an accumulated value over time. This is what it looks like in Excel:

I have it working as a summary, but can't get the technology piece to work. And ultimately, technology is part of a hierarchy that I'd love to be able to drill down through, to show the data divided in more or less granularity as needed. Below is what my current chart looks like:

Can this be done? One thing I just realized is that in the original chart, which I'm trying to replicate, that the budget and forecast data is only being shown as a total, whereas the actuals are being divided by technology. I'm not sure if that's possible, or if it makes it more or less difficult.

 

Any advice is much appreciated!

 

thanks

Alex

Re: Accumulated area chart with time and value on x-axis

@pozzyal so the problem is you are using multiple values. My suggestion would be to combine the technology and measure type column. for example it should have budget-geo, forecast-geo and budget-hydro, forecast-hydro. 

 

my suggestion would be to have the filter like you have set up. if all need to be looked at simultaneously have multiple charts with diff measures in each.

Re: Accumulated area chart with time and value on x-axis

I would love to, but can't find a way to attach it. I see that I can attach photos and video, or a url, but nothing for a file. How do I do that?

 

thanks!
