Is it possible to split the color by some category within a Waterfall chart?

0 votes

I am new to Tableau and recently I found out how to create a waterfall chart (Gantt-charts, rolling sum for y-axis and negative value for length of bar.

Now my question would be if there is a possibility to split the color by some category?

Following is the sample of the visualization I want to create within Tableau

Without Split:

Waterfall without split

With Split:

Waterfall with split

It's a very easy task to do. Its as simple as dragging the field to Markscard Shelve(Color), and then adjusting the table calculation.

Step 1: For a simple running sum (for positioning the bars), you have to go and edit the table calculation, and  select Compute using Advanced

Step 2: Drag all your fields to addressing.

Step 3: Sort your data by the master field (in your case the one that has Coffee, Coke,...) maximum (ascending or descending, doesn't matter)

This way it guarantee that the running sum is being applied to one category at a time (not one color at a time)
