    Side By Side Chart Switches to Stacked when I remove the dimension that determines colour

    Matthew Sleight

      Help guys!

       

      I am trying to make a side by side chart, using colours to represent a value called "Period" and the height of the bars to be the total consumption in that period.

       

      The calculations and numbers all work fine, but Tableau seems to want to force the data into a stacked bar chart.  No matter what order I drag the objects, it always reverts to stacked.

       

      I can't link the workbook as it's huge, but what should I watch out for that might stop me making a side by side chart like I want?
