How to Create a Diverging Stacked Bar Chart in Tableau

How do you create a diverging stacked bar chart in tableau in this example I have a stacked bar chart using category and State in the measure is profit let's take a look at how to build this in tableau First I want to drag state to rows and then profit to columns. In order to create a diverging bar chart you're going to need a measure that goes both positive and negative so in my case profit goes negative and goes positive at different times sort highest to lowest now on color i'll in drag category onto the color Shelf that's going to create a stacked chart I can also put color on detail so it's stacked but not colored and then put a copy of profit onto color to color by profit orange is negative and blue is positive hope this helps.
