          Hi Dinesh,


          You should bring them both into the dashboard and use the padding in layout or use blank objects to adjust the grand totals chart so that the left hand side has a blank space.


          The axis should also be fixed so that both the charts use the exact same range:


          Step one:


          1) Bring a horizontal container in:





          2) Then bring in the two worksheets so that one is above and below the other, you can remove anything from the view you don't need:




          2) Hide the title in the total worksheet:




          3) Show the header in the worksheet for table and fix the axis:







          4) Then hide the headers and go to the totals table and fix the axis there. In the dashboard, fit both worksheets to entire view:





          5) Click on the totals worksheet and go to layout and update the left padding:







          Please see the attached workbook.

              HI Denish,


              I tried to mock up the data, but it was too huge and I failed.

              Basic concept is like these posts.


              Unable to sum grand total for table calculation field


              Grand Total Not Adding Up


              But big workarouds might be needed and performance hits are also concerned.


              Combining on dashboard may be more realistic.
