2-4 stacked bar graphs, two variables each, Y's vary same chart

2-4 stacked bar graphs, two variables each, Y's vary same chart

Post by V3JpdGVyIG » Wed, 24 Oct 2007 04:02:13


An example of what I want to do on one chart would be if I wanted to do bar
graphs of male and female attendance for 5 months for two or more classes.
The X axes are all the same, with the categories of 5 months eg jan-May) .
There would be two bars (male and female attendance) for each month on all of
the graphs . The Y's might be different for each class. I want them all on
the same chart. (I have spend 5 frustrating hours trying to figure out how to
do this! I already have my data in separate charts, but have the source
data). I shall be so grateful if someone can help me do this!

Set up the data like this, keep the top left cell blank, and populate the
range below the labels and right of the months:

Class A-F Class A-M Class B-F Class B-M
Jan
Feb
Mar
etc.

Create a column chart using series in columns.
