Continuing a waterfall over trellis panels

In a trellised waterfall chart, the waterfall by default starts from zero on the value axis in each of the trellis panels. Another option is to let the waterfall continue over multiple trellis panels.

When you continue the waterfall in another trellis panel, the last value determines where the first value in the next panel should start.


The waterfall chart is trellised.


  1. Right-click the waterfall chart, and select Properties in the opened menu.
    The Properties pop-over is shown.
  2. Click Layout.
    The Layout section is shown.
  3. Select the Continue over trellis check box.
    You can click the arrow next to the check box to select over which trellis panels the waterfall should continue; Pages, Panels, Rows, and Columns.


The waterfall chart below is trellised into two panels, one panel for 2017 and one panel for 2018. For each of the two panels, the initial value of the waterfall starts at zero. This is the default behavior when trellising a waterfall chart.

Selecting Continue over trellis results in the following waterfall. The first value in the 2017 panel starts where the last value in the 2018 panel ended.
