I played around for a while, but could not find a format code to make 80%
display as 80. I could not get this to work on the sheet cells format either. You could right click the value axis, choose Format, choose Number and type in the format code .00 to make 80% display as .80 but it sounds like you don't want that. Do you really need to get rid of the percentage sign? I think it would make the chart more readable and easier to interpret if it were there. Tufte would agree.

If you want to keep the original data unchanged, but plot different data,
then use another range, put in a formula like =100*B2 to convert B2 from a percentage to a number, and use this data in your chart. Put it on another sheet if your boss would otherwise get confused.

Thanks for looking into this Christopher.
Jon, it's a brilliant suggestion to use an intermediate table to generate the graph. Thanks a million! Anne

Well, I wouldn't say brilliant, but it sure is a lot easier. Worksheet space
is cheap, and brainpower to force Excel to do what it doesn't want to is expensive.

I have a data column with the percentage number which is formatted as 0;; which means no decimals;no negatives;0 doesn't show... this way I have a clean column of numbers which I could also use as whole numbers if need be. My solution came in the formula which I use based on that data... supposing the data column is B, the formula would be: (A1 * B1%) / C1 Cheers!!
