Display negative values in Treemap


First post!!!  


I'm using a range of values that includes both positive and negative numbers (think profit).  The tree map will not display the 4 negative values in my range.  Is there any way to get them to display?

    A Treemap is a lot like a Pie chart in that it draws the areas of the shapes to correspond with the value that shape represents. Since you can't have a shape with negative area (at least not with the dimensions we know about Smiley Wink ), there isn't a way to accurately represent a negative value on these types of cards. A Card that shows relative height or distance might be better. A Bar graph card could be a good option or perhaps a vertical or horizontal symbol card.

    Thanks.  That's what I was afraid of.  I've seen other treemaps with negative values, so I was hoping this could be done.  Yeah, I could do it with a more traditional chart, but wanted something different.  I'll keep looking around.


    Thanks for your help!

    I would suggest using a waterfall chart since it incorporates summaries, losses and gains. I hope this helps.
