Chart Data

Hi All

I have the following requirement.

I have data in the following format in Excel which I imported into BO as it is.

This is Sheet 1 in BO

Company Name Jan 2015 Feb 2015 Mar 2015 Apr 2015 C1 10 20 30 40 C2 50 58 39 27 C3 85 74 89 87

This is Sheet 2 in BO

Company Name Jan 2014 Feb 2014 Mar 2014

Apr 2014

C1 52 25 39 68 C2 47 58 89 74 C3 12 87 96 41

I need a bar and line combined chart that displays the above data in such a way that when I filter for any one company name I should be able to see the column chart for last year's data (Sheet 2) and this year's data (Sheet 1) in line chart in the same chart combined together split over each month. Any help would be appreciated.

    Create a Dropdown for Company name merged dimension in the Filter bar where you can select the
