The data I'd like to chart is like this:

       2000       2001         2002
A        x          x           x
B        x          x           x
C        x          x           x
D        x          x           x
E        x          x           x

I'd like to have a chart where:

  • the x-axis values are the years 2000-2002
  • for each year there are 2 stacked columns of data:
    • the first column has the values from A and B stacked on top of each other
    • the second column has the values from C, D and E stacked on top of each other

Is that possible?

You're asking for a graph which includes both clustered and stacked data columns. I don't see any of this type of graph in Excel. – Mehper C. Palavuzlar Mar 10 '10 at 11:43

I always check Peltier's site for all my graphing needs. This should do it for you.
