    Mark labels - sum of counted

    Sarah Arnio

      Hello all,

      I am new to Tableau and I have a chart showing the number of transactions per day per merchant, last 30 days. I want to see the total number of transactions for the day at the top of each stacked bar in the chart, so I looked at this article: Adding Totals to Stacked Bars | Tableau Software  and while it works for sums, I can't seem to get it to work, it appears because I am COUNTING the transactions. When I go to add a reference line, and fill in the fields according to the screenshot below, it gives me the total for the entire period. I want the daily total.

      Here is what the chart originally looks like:
