I’d like to make a chart like the one below but with the core bars in one color and the and non-core bars in another color.  I can’t seem to figure out how to do that – can you help?

The chart I am working with is attached.

If you slowly click on one of the bars twice, you can select just that bar. You can then apply the desired color to it. Repeat this procedure for the other bars.
