Waterfall chart

Refer the pivot table and the waterfall chart for the pivot table.
We have a “154% total” bar on the extreme right in the chart. What does this 154% represent?
Also, I dont want the bar chart to appear in my visual, but i dont have the option to remove it.

I think it doesnt make sense to add/substract percent values. Any comments on the intuition behind the value 154%?

By design, the waterfall chart displays the cumulative sum as the Total column. At present there is no option to disable it. You can try hiding the total column by overlapping some other visual(e.g. narrative visual) in case you are using the free form layout.
This would be a new feature request which has been noted

@ramya ,

See if this workaround helps ,

Two Calculated field
Cum_Sales =
runningSum ( sum(Sales), [Industry ASC] )
Diff-bucket =

Use this Calculated field “Diff-bucket” along with metric as shown in Vertical stacked Bar chart , change legend color of Diff-bucket to match with your background. You should have desired output of waterfall chart with no total
