    Unique Stacked Column Question

    dean.knickerbocker

      I am trying to mimic an existing graphic look and feel for a client.  They have a chart that shows total program costs per quarter.    The data is stored in a row per event so you would have sample data such as (real data has many more fields):

       

      Event Number, Date, Total Cost

       

      What makes the chart I need to mimc tricky is that it further breaks the columns down by grouping event costs.  By that I mean all the events in Quarter 1 with total cost less than say $20K are grouped and colored say red, between $20K and $50K blue and over $50K green.  The colors are then stacked.  And there are 4 columns, one for each quarter of the year.

       

      I can make stacked column charts when the data is in separate columns in my data source.  But being a relative new tableau user I am not quite sure how to go about this.
