Compare Two Values Side by Side in Bar Chart

Hi,

 

I have two tables like below.

Table 1 (Target Sales):

 

Year       Target Sales Points

  1          1000

  2           800

  3           800

  4           700

  5           700

 

Table 2 (Actual Sales):

 

Sales Person ID    Year    Actual Sales Points

  1                         1       800

  1                         2      300

  2                         1       1050

  2                         2       850

  2                         3       800

  .

  .

  .

 

Now I need to compare Actual Sales against Target Sales for the selected Sales Person in a column / bar chart.

I added Year from table 1 on axis and Target Sales on values for a column / bar chart. When I add the Actual Sales Point from table 2, it is getting summed up(For example, for rep 1, it is summed up as 1100) and showing the same value for all 5 years.

 

I want to show the actual for each year against target sales points and in case if the actual does not exist for any of the 5 years, it should show blank. Please guide me to achieve this.

You need a common axis, so either you are missing a relationship between your Year columns or you need to create a separate Year table and relate it to both of your tables. Then use that common Year for your axis.
