Waterfall chart with stacked columns

Dear All,

 

I need to create a visualization like this one (with stacked columns):

But there're some limitations regarding the visualization. As you can see there's no option to do it. I already tried to import new visualizations, but the only possibility is not for free. Can you support me to find a solution for this? How can i visualize the draft above?

Thanks!

If you don't want to/can't pay for a a commercial visual then you are limioted to what is available with the free ones.  With the in-built stacked column you can achieve something like this but it requires manipulating the data - you have to create a 3rd section in the stack to respresent the distance from the x-axis, and then set that to the same colour as the visual background.  This makes it invisible.

 

You also need to name the other 2 categories in such a way that they are displayed as you want.  By default they are alpahbetically stacked in ascending order from the bottom up.

 

But you can achieve this
