The attached image shows a combination of line and bar chart. The named-range called CurrMthCol may contain numbers from 1 to 24 (a two year period).

In the attached image, because it contains Agust 2013 (or 8), its matching bar is shaded (filled) red.

For your consideration, Agust 2014 will be 12 + 8 or 20.

Question: Using VBA or whatever possible, how can I shade the bar matching the value in CurrMthCol?

Thank you.

Hello,

the description of the data and layout is a bit unclear. Maybe you can post a sample file instead of  a picture.

What you want to achieve can be done without VBA, just using data layout. In the attached file you can see a stacked column chart from two series. The chart data is in two helper columns. A formula determines if the white bar has a value greater than 0 or the red bar has a value greater than 0.  You will need to figure out the logic for your situation, but we can help with that, of course.

Whenever the number in cell G2 changes, the red bar in the chart will shift its position.

Let me know if this helps or if you need more assistance.

cheers, teylyn
