Want to create a profit and loss chart in Tableau? It's easier than you might think! Using the Superstore data, I want to show year over year changes in sales, by state. I add State to the Columns shelf, Order Date to the Rows shelf, and Sales to Text Marks Card. A profit and loss chart requires a year over year difference calculation. It’s not present in the data, but it’s easy to create one with Tableau. Right click on Sales and select Quick Table Calculation > Difference.
