    Could you tell me how to get a chart to show a column figure in two different colours.

    Hi Steve
    Sorry I did not explain myself fully. I have a column graph showing (scheduled) (actual) and I want to add the overflow into the next weeks (scheduled) column. I need this to be shown on the scheduled column as as additional qty in a different colour.

    Gees I hope you can understand me as it looks confusing to me [img]/forums/images/smilies/smile.gif[/img]

    I have a vague idea of what you want and think you can do what you want (Assuming my "vague idea" is accurate <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>) with a stacked column chart.

    I can't give any details as I don't completely understand. Could you describe what you want and what data you have?

    Check out the charts created in the threads starting in <post#=250988>post 250988</post#> and <post#=284695>post 284695</post#>. I imagine it is "something" like this and these might give you some ideas of how to apply to yours.

    If it is nothing like those or they are unclear, post back and we will see what we can do. If nothing else post a sample of your data and either describe or "create" an example chart with shapes in powerpoint (it doesn't have to be accurate, just an idea of what you are looking for) or even draw one and scan it and post the picture.
