creating a waterfall with an "other" group for small variances

Hi There


Fairly new to PowerBI, but a long time user of waterfalls.  


Instead of getting a very wide waterfall with all the variances across the graph, even those that at minor, I would like to show those that are material (variance greater than 5,000 (plus or minus) and % variance greater than 2.5% (plus or minus)) as single movements and then all the smaller ones as "Other".  


If I filter out the smaller ones the total movement in the waterfall is does not reconcile to the total movement.  


Is there any way of getting the smaller variances to group into the catch-all "Other" group as a coded solution?


Thanks in advance.

Could you please share dummy data of your table and post expected result here?

Greater than 2.5% and $5000 varianceGreater than 2.5% and $5000 varianceNo filtereingNo filtereing

I have attached the two graphes and the data pasted below.  My accounts come from a formal Chart of Accounts and there is no "Other" in that data.  I usually have a multi card report above the graph which is dynamic as it works on the highlight. 


If the full chart (default) then the card can have a different movement shown that the filtered graph if there are many small variances.

Bumb, also looking for solutions to dynamic sorting small deviations into an other group based on relative size (% of deviation) instead of an actual number.
