I dont know the proper lingo, for what i want, so i hope you all know what im talking about.

So i have a bar graph, which shows overall injuries on month per month basis.  but i would like it to show under the same bar, to show that 5 of the 10 injuries in that month were serious, rather just a reported incidenet.  

How would i go about doing that?  More information, i will be glad to clear it up, once i know what the proper word to use is in Office.  Thank you.

So you have a column with total number of injuries (column a), a column showing the total number of serious injuries (column b)?

You could create a third column (column c) with the formula a-b and then do a stacked graph of column c and column b.


Is the attached what you are looking for?

i appreciate the quick response.  I never heard back from the user.  So  i will consider this resolved, i forwarded Pony's sample sheet.  

Gaines, thank you sir, but i meant one bar containing double information.  

Thanks for taking the time to create a sheet.

Thank you, hope it is what the user wants.

I used the stacked column chart in Excel 2003 to create it.
