I have created an Excel graph.  Problem is the graph contains a lot of information.  Consequently, it is scrunched up on the page.  I have tried to stretch it so it fills up all of the space withing the box but it won't work.  Instead I have the bar graph with a large amount of blank space on each side of it within the charted area.  How can I fix this?  Thanks...

With each graph you create in Excel, there are two sizing options. One is for the overall Chart Area, you resize by dragging one of the corners and expanding width and length, and Excel automatically resizes (or tries to) the graph and its text.

The second sizing option is to click onto the bar chart itself. This selects the Plot Area. You can size that to whatever you want, expand it or shrink it. You may find that putting the legend at the top or bottom or in a floating text box will help you manage the visible area of the graph better. If you click onto the gray area (or white, if you've cleared the background formatting), it'll select the graph itself.
