Short description:

Create a waterfall Plot

 

Long Description:

 

The information used consists of two columns: category, and amount.

 

Typically, this chart is used to understand the cost structure of organizations, product categories or services.

 

The information must be SORTED on AMOUNT -> DECREASING, and it is a good idea to always do a bit of cleaning.

 

In the below example, we simply order the columns properly, clean the values to make sure everything is numerical, sort the data and plot the chart.
