    Bars don't line up (excel 2002)

    Anybody had problems with the bars being very narrow on an excel graph such that they don't even line up with the x axis values????? Several other graphs in the same sheet looked fine. Then this one goes crazy?

    Not sure exactly what the problem. Could you give more details?

    You can widen the bars by changing the options in the Format data series dialog.

    It almost sounds like you have other date series that do not show up. Could you provide some sample data or explain it in more detail?

    Several other graphs on the same data and worksheet look fine. I am unable to adjust the bar gap. If I change to a different style of graph it is much more normal. But the bars are way out of proportion compared to the rest of the graph when the bar graph is selected . I tried to attach the graph on my first email. This is something I have never seen before and wondered if it was a bug.

    I still don't understand the issue, so I can't answer any better than I did before.

    You haven't attached any file (you are limited to 100k) make sure you attach AFTER previewing and AFTER spell-checking.
