I have 2 data sets, I need to show a stacked & clustered column.

title      Pump1      Pump2      Pump3
Incidents      10      20      40
Volume      30      12      15
Staff      12      14      25
                  
Pump1      Jan      Feb      March
Incidents      2      3      5
Volume      10      10      10
Staff      5      4      3

For example, Pump1/2/3 will be side by side as Incidents/volume/staff and for each of those bars they will be stacked based on how many of that type for that month.

Is this possible?

Hello,

Jon Peltier has a tutorial on clustered stacked charts here: http://peltiertech.com/WordPress/clustered-stacked-column-bar-charts/

The devil is in the detail of the data layout. I'd be happy to help, but I have not quite figured out what you want on which axis and what you want to stack.

cheers, teylyn

It's a bit of a hack solution, but will work. I just wasn't sure if Excel could do it out of box, but according to that link you need to buy a separate add-on to get that functionality.

If it can be done with Excel charts, Jon can do it. He sells the automated VBA add-ins that make the process easier, but he also always shows the manual way of achieving the same thing for free on his site.

I agree, the approach is a bit cumbersome manually, especially for larger datasets, but the results are worth it.

Thanks for the grade,

cheers, teylyn
