# how can i create a calculated field based off buckets?

Hi all,

Recently I created pricing buckets for the amount of loan a borrower took out. This works

Right now, we have two different visuals that show 2021 vs 2022

This is ok but we would rather be able to see both of these graphs in one with the different years in different colors. Is there any way to do this?

The only way I know how to set up a period over period visualization is with the year on the x axis - which in this case doesn't work.

If this helps, feel free to agree, accept or awesome it!

Wrap your beast mode in a case statement to check for this year and then another to check for last year

This Year Count:

```CASE WHEN YEAR(`Fiscal Date`) = YEAR(CURDATE()) THEN
COUNT(`Field`)
END﻿
```

Last Year Count:

```CASE WHEN YEAR(`Fiscal Date`) = YEAR(CURDATE())-1 THEN
COUNT(`Field`)
END
```

You can then put both of these beast modes as your y value / series values and make sure you select a group type bar chart.

The 'graph by' setting is set to graph by year. Not sure why the output is like that.

I don't think you want 'graph by' since it's not really a time series. You're using the year as a categorical variable and applying it as the series value. I would get rid of the 'graph by', and then double check your sorts
