How to make column chart



I'm trying 2 things

1 To make column chart like below photo 1. I want to stack value until year end, and then I want to reset and re-stack

2 After making 1, I want to see how I piled up actual data compared with forecast like below photo 2 at the year level.(or month level)


Are there any plan?

Best regards.

    For your first picture,  you will have to use a line item that pre calculates the "stacking" by doing a cumulation with YEARTODATE for example. Then you can publish a standard column chart on a dashboard with the two years. Or you can split them in 2 graphs, one for each year.


    For the second, you can prepare one module with 2 line items (or use the versions list, depending on your model), actual and forecast, over a yearly time scale and use the combination chart to stack the actual and forecast line item together (change them to column).
