    Box Plots using Gantt Bars and multiple mark types

      Hi guys,

       

      I've been using a boxplot hack like the one demonstrated in the Knowledge Base tutorial/video (http://www.tableausoftware.com/support/knowledge-base/box-plot-analog) but it has some limitations in terms of formatting (namely that the horizontal distance between boxes is zero).

       

      Speaking with Wilson@Tableau the other day, he mentioned that there's another way to hack boxplots using Gantt bars. He sent me a workbook but I'm having trouble replicating what they've done.

       

      Sheet 1 is the final state, Sheet 2 is my work-in-progress.

       

      It looks like the Columns, Rows, and Marks are all set up identically, so it may just be a formatting issue, but I just can't figure what to do next.

       

      Any advice?
