Waterfall chart scale

Hello !


I have made the following waterfall charts and I have added as an exemple one measure, using the following blog for that



Is there a way to change the scale of the volume and price so that I have a chart where even for a small variance of volume and price, I manage to represent them in different scale then the actual values (category values) to get at the end something like the picture below



Thank you in advance,

Hi @MariemArfaoui 

Could you show me more details about your tables?

In your last visual is Actual = Plan+volumn+Price. It seems that 42.4 = 35.5+7+0

Please show me your calculcate logic for volumn and price measure.

This may make it easier for me to understand your requirement.


Best Regards,

Rico Zhou

Hello @RicoZhou  !


So my price is actually the substruction of the end value (Actuals Current Year) from the start value (Actuals Last Y, Budget,...) and the volume is the same just usign the volume attribute instead of the sales ttribute


The calculation of last visual are actually wrong, but it gives the correct "shape" that I'm looking for, meaning that at the end of the volume bar I get also the end of the actuals'20 and not in my case where there is a gap between the end value and the price bar.


When I set the start of Y axis from 0, i get the following graph but I would like to have the 1 bar bigger compared to the rest of the bars. It's like it have a different scale eventhough I'm just showing one




I hope I managed to explain what I want,


Best Regards,


Did you ever find a solution? I'm going through the same thing. I'd like the spacing of the Y-Axis to be much smaller, which can easily be done in Excel, so the breakdown categories aren't as extreme.




No 😕 I didn't find anything that allows me to control that.

Not sure it's possible
