  3. Drag objects Year, Quarter, Month, Quantity sold
  4. Set Year as a Section
  5. Insert new blank table in the Year section
  6. Remove the section, while removing the section it will ask for the confirmation for the remove then click on 'No'
  7. Drag Year dimension in the blank table along with the Quantity sold, so that Quantity sold becomes a second column for this new table

  9. Insert new blank table in the Quarter section
  10. Remove the section, while removing the section it will ask for the confirmation for the remove then click on 'No'
  11. Drag Quarter dimension in the blank table. Also drag the Quantity sold, so that Quantity sold becomes a second column for this new table

  17. Right click on the table and select Format Table
  18. Select Layout. In the Relative Position section set the vertical position from the Bottom edge and position as 0 cm
