Tableau: Dual axis chart with overlapping bars and a line

3 comments
What took me a couple hours to figure out in Excel (see previous blog post) just took me about 90 seconds to create in Tableau (though I do have 4+ years experience with Tableau).
Notice that the bars are properly scaled now too.  The gray bar now longer is at $150 not $190 like it looked like in Excel.  Bottom line, use Tableau.

  1. Do you have similar instructions for doing this in Tableau as you posted for excel?

  2. How did I know someone would ask for the Tableau instructions? :-)

    I'll work on it for a separate post. Keep an eye out over the next few days.
