## How to: visualize ideal range values with actual data

Hello folks, I need some help here if you please.

I am trying to visualize 3 cathegories of data in a combined way, like the following:

- range maximum: a reference value for maximum

- range minimum: a reference value for minimum

- actual: the actual performance achieved (it can be below, inside or above the reference range)

I actually could do it on excel using two stacked columns, one for max and other for min, and "hiding" the minimum stack. However, I needed to recalculate the maximum value, so the lenght of the max column would be equal to the difference between the max and min. But I could make Excel display custom data at the data label.

For example:

- max value displayed: 20

- min value displayed: 16

- min column lenght: 16

- max column lenght: 4 (20 - 16)

- actual value performed: 17,5

Do you guys know any way of building this in power bi?

Thank you

Hey,

maybe the CandleStick custom visual from OKviz freely available from the office store is what you are looking for. Another custom visual could also be the Trading Chart from MAQ also available in the office store.

Hopefully this gets you started

Hi @brucruz,

A sure thing is you need a custom visual. Try the Box and Whisker chart from Store. If you want more help, please share a sample.

Best Regards!
