## Waterfall Chart only Showing Augments and not Decrease maybe because how my data is modeled?

I have problem with how i should model my data for the waterfall chart, which has information of different people showing how many citations they have gained over the years. In the chart it shows the values of each year but it only does in increment.

And i need it to kinda look like this.

Heres a sample of how the data looks

Should i somehow make a Measure that calculates the difference of the previous year and put it as a breakdown or just remodel my table to fit more the waterfall chart.

Hi @Pas58 ,

When the value of y-axis is negative, it will show decrease.

Therefore, you need to place your current value on the y axis to compare the change amount of the previous value, if the amount of change is negative, then it will show a decrease and turn red.

For example, putting the count of id will not show an increase or decrease effect, you need to create a measure to get the difference.

``Measure = COUNT('Table'[author_id])-CALCULATE(COUNT('Table'[author_id]),FILTER(ALLSELECTED('Table'),[year]=MAX('Table'[year])-1))``
