This report allows you to compare planned values versus actuals across a set of projects. For example, build a column chart showing Estimated and Actual Hours, for all projects in a portfolio:
Type: Column: Basic
Title: <enter a meaningful title>
Other report Types that work well include Area: Basic, Bar: Basic, Line, and Spiderweb.
If the selected data fields do not overlap, then the Area: Stacked, Bar: Stacked, and Column: Stacked may also be of interest.
Bottom Axis: Title
Left Axis: <up to 10 comparable fields, such as Actual Hours, Estimated Hours, Scheduled Hours, Total Budget, Total Cost, Total Capitalized Costs, Total Non-Capitalized Costs, and so on>
Per above, if the selected fields are complementary and do not overlap, you could use a Stacked report Type. Otherwise you would want to use a Basic report Type.
To change the data field labels for the Legend, for example from "Estimated Hours" to "Planned Hours", within the Left Axis area title select the edit icon for "Show Field Options" and in the resulting "Field Options" modal, edit the field "Display Name".
