Default How do I manually adjust the width of my columns in a bar graph?

In a graph, I would like to manually drag the columns to make them thicker or
thinner. I would also like to adjust the spacing between columns.

Right click a series on the chart, choose Format data series... and then
in the Options tab, play a bit with overlap and gap width.

Note that you can only adjust the entire series, not each individual column
and gap.

Hi,

1. You can't manually drag to adjust column widths on a chart.
2. You can use the menu methods already suggested.
3. You can "Fake" the display of a column chart so that some bars appear
wider than others but its a lot of work.
