Hi Usman,

By the sound of it, you just want one activity to equal your total cost on the project. If you don't need to utilize the histograms, then just create a user defined field and call it "Total Expense Cost", and input the value to the activity that you desire.

create a LOE activity 

make the predcessors is a SS relationship with the 1st activity 

make the successor a ff relationship with the last activity in the schedule 

create a resource call it lumpsum

assign the resource to loe activity

add the cost for the project to the resource

then assign a curve to the resource
