    Multiple Field Color on Trellis Plot in Tableau

    Ong Ying

      Hello all,

       

      Need a help!

      I have 2 categorical data in a way. And I am trying to do the color such that

       

      - Female : in shade of pink : shading by age group

      - Male: in shade of blue: shading by age group

       

      But it seems that I can get solid color (like below) or same color range in shade. Any idea on how to achieve the above?

       

      Thanks for the help!

          Hello Ong,

           

          For creation of dual chart we need atleast one date field and 2 measure, according to your data dual chart is not possible.

          But we can acheive this by using below steps.

           

          Create 2 workbook.

          First workbook contain data of male.

          Second for female

           

           

          For colour range inshade put measure in colour shade in my case I have puted number of records (i.e. number of person falling in that age range).

          once we are done with this then combine this 2 sheet in dashboard as below.

           

           

          Hope it helps..!!

          Please find attached package for more details.
