Is it possible to get a bubble chart from the attached information?

I have tried so many times, but I can't seem to make it work. All of the examples and notes from Google etc haven;t helped! They all seem to have three sets of data, but 2 of which need to be numbers/values - is this correct, or can you do it with the sort of info I am using?

Many thanks.

First question

What are you trying to say with the chart?

I think a bubble chart requires two numerical values, one for the size and one for the Y axis. I guess you were trying to get an evenly sized grid with bubbles in to represent the amounts? You may be better off with a different type of chart to represent your data.

I'm not too sure, my boss has asked me to do it!!

Column A are sweets, which we send to Customers, Row 1.

We want to see the values of how many sweets we send to each customer.

Does that make sense?!

Hi,

From your description a bar chart or a column chart makes more sense
