I am trying to format the attached column charts so that the "Power Outages" column is taken into account.  I would that value in black on both bars for MPLS and Internet.  Also, need a label on the chart to designate that black represents power outages of the total value.  For example, site D will have 89.1 in blue as is, but within it the first 63.53 of it will be black to indicate that part was due to power outages.  The 104.92 will be in red, but up to 63.53 will be in black as well.

Hello,

Select the cells from K20 to K32 and copy.
Select the chart and use Paste Special. Accept the defaults.
This will add a new series to the chart.
format the new series and send it to the secondary axis.
Select the chart and use Paste Special again. Accept the defaults.
Now there are two series on the secondary axis
Format the secondary axis to have the same maximum value as the primary axis.
Delete the secondary axis.
Format the two new data series to have black fill.
Select one of the black legend entries and delete.

See attached.

cheers, teylyn
