Stacked Vertical Bars Graph

Stacked vertical bars are an alternative to plain Vertical bars when a 2D graph is already in side-by-side format. Values normally presented side-by-side are stacked on top of one another.

If a 2D graph is not already in a stacked or side-by-side formation, there is no difference between this graph type and Vertical bars.

The stacks are not cumulative: each section represents a completely separate value. Thus, sections higher in the stack should not be viewed as including lower ones.

Negative values are not allowed for this graph type.

Select Options ® 2D options to call up the 2D Options dialog window and choose the graph type. You can set the width of the bars using the Bar/column width indicator.
