I would like to add formatting to the bars based on another column.
Ex: I just want to highlight bars(metric) when it is less than target value.
We have conditional formatting option in charts but , its working on the same column but not comparing with other columns.
Hi, If you have column A and column B , and for example you want the values of column A to get formatted if the the correspoding value of column B less than a specific value. You just go to Criteria -> Get to Column A -> Column Properties -> Conditional Format -> Add Condition -> Choose your Column B , and then make sure the condition is " Less than the value you want"
Now, In case you want the values of your column A to be formatted if they are less to the corresponding value of colum B, Well, I don't think it is natively integrated, but still, here is an idea :
You drag again your column B , so that in Criteria -> Selected Columns , you'll have the columns A - B - B , then, you go to the newely added B Column -> Edit Formula and modify the formula to be ColumnAMinusColumnB.
Then go back in selected columns to your A Column -> Column Properties -> Conditional Format -> Add Condition -> Choose now the new column ( ColumnAMinusColumnB ), and then make sure the condition is " Less than the value *0* "
You can later, go and hide the colum AMinusB from Edit View in Results.
Hope this helps.
