How to build a "Waterfall" Forecast Report

Hi there,


I'm trying to build a table to compare how the forecast for a full year have been changing from month over month. It is called "waterfall" at my company.  However, "waterfall" is not the name at the global community, so I haven't succeed in finding references on how to build it.





Green cells refer to actual sales and yellow cells to forecast. Each row shows the forecast/actual for the full year rolled out in a certain month (forecasting cycle).


I designed the report having a Dates Dimension table and two fact tables: Forecast and Actuals.  Unfortunately, the outcome is not what I expected:image.png



Does anyone knows if there is already a template/visual to accomplish this report?


I'd like to avoid developing queries/processes to calculate the full year estimate for each forecasting cycle a/o product.


Please advise.


Thank you.
