    Stacked bar and line in one graph

    Tristan Tucker



      I reguarly use an excel/access solution which, using SQL and VBA, asks for data to be dumped into excel on a local machine in order for excel to graph the information using vertical stacked bars and a horizontal line. The ability to create graphs and use Tableau is incredible however without this function, which has always been available in excel, Tableau is lacking.


      I have attached a copy of the graph I create in excel. I have used Tableau for other things but this has stopped me from completely converting over from MS access and Excel. The graphing is so powerful in Tableau which is why it is surprising it is lacking and only available in excel.


      I hope to see it available in the next version of Tableau- Business objects XL has the ability to have stacked bars and vertical lines like the attached graph.
