Multicolor Bar / Column Chart

Definition

This chart type displays data in the form of multicolored bars or columns.

Use

Multicolor bar charts are used like normal bar / column charts. However, you can also assign value ranges to multicolor bar charts.

There are two chart subtypes. The first subtype shows bars / columns in several different colors depending on the value range. The second subtype shows each bar / column in one color depending on the height / length of the bar / column.

Structure

The vertical columns or horizontal bars consist of several segments, each in a different color.
