Create a waterfall Plot.


Long Description:


The information used consists of two columns: category, and amount.


Typically, this chart is used to understand the cost structure of organizations, product categories or services.


The information must be SORTED on AMOUNT -> DECREASING, and it is a good idea to always do a bit of cleaning.


In the below example, we simply order the columns properly, clean the values to make sure everything is numerical, sort the data and plot the chart.
