Waterfall Chart - actual top change hidden in Other

Hi,

I have a waterwall chart with a very large Other category and couple of small increases / decreases. However, I know for a fact that there is a large change hidden in the Other category. When I fliter for that specific customer, the very same waterfall chart correctly shows the related candle and its large value. Without the filter, however, I don't see the largest change.

Any ideas on what could be the reason for this behavior?
Thank you.

I found out that when I filter for Measure > 0, the issue is magically corrected and all the real top changes appear in the chart. I hope this workaround has no side-effects, but it looks like there is no need for the zero cases.

It still feels like a bug as I would expect the chart to handle zeros. I'm surprised this is not a known issue.

Hi @PetrM ,

 

 

If you want to view the large change hidden in the other category, please put the corresponding field into the Breakdown.

I do have that field (client) in Breakdown but it doesn't seem to work correctly.  While all the "non-Other" changes are very small (say +3, +2, +1, -1, -2, -3), the "Other" column is very large (-200.000). That in itself looks wrong. And it is wrong since I know that there is a client with -52.000 change. And when I filter for that client, it is displayed correctly in the waterfall chart.
