    How can I group list of bank transactions by sub-category similar to personal budget heathers?

    Yves Lacroix

      I have imported my bank statement into Tableau.


      I want to see the various transactions types below as 'Dimension' and Measures' into Tableau so that I would be able to sort them by types of transactions and sum them up.  For example: Insurance, Investment, Deposits, Mobile expenses, etc. summed up by month and the entire year.

      When I import the above file into Tableau, I get the following Dimensions and Measures:

      Do I need to prepare the data differently to get to do this?


      The end result should resemble something like this:




      -Investment and interest return





      -Car expenses
