Default Excel 2003 - Combination chart: Stacked Column + Stacked Column

Is there a way to show 2 series as 2 stacked columns on 1 chart?

For example -

x-axis = quarters of the year: Q1, Q2, Q3, Q4

left y-axis = projected sales by region as a stacked column

right y-axis = actual sales by region as a stacked column

Regions = America, Europe, EMEA, APAC

This chart can help get a quarterly comparison of projections vs actuals by
quarter and region.

Thanks!

Default Excel 2003 - Combination chart: Stacked Column + Stacked Colum

Barb,

Thanks for the quick response. This article came close but did not help me
because the items in the 2 series are different.

The chart I am trying to create has the exact same items in both series
(Sales by Region), only the values are different for actual and projected.
Maybe the answer is there and I need to improvise some.

Do you know of any other article that comes closer or some other web site I
could refer to?

TIA!
Robyda.

Why not create a chart with two series (actual and projected) on the
same y-axis?

It still boils down to how you arrange your data. You asked about this in
the comments to my blog post on this chart type, and I answered with a
sample table showing the appropriate data layout. You cannot use the simple
table that would appear in a report; fortunately worksheet space is cheap
and you can support both tables, with links from the charting source to the
original data so changes in the original are captured by the chart.
