SSRS Stacked Column Chart is too High

Hello Experts Exchange
I have a chart that is a Stacked Column Chart.  The problem I have is the red column is going higher than it should.

Take a look at my image I have attached.

You will see the green column that is correct for all categories, but the red is wrong for every one.

The red column should match the table on the right of the column chart.

So for example UKL should be 2196 but on the column chart it is over 2500.

How do I get it to show the correct value?

The problem is that it is a stacked chart. This means that the red bar starts where the green one ends. Because the green bar is about 400, the means that the red bar goes from 400-2600.

You therefore need to change it to a column or a 3D column chart if you don't want it stacked.

Hello Phillip
Is there a chart type that will do what I want to do?

Depends on what you want to do. I've given you two alternatives, but if they aren't useful, then you need to say what's wrong with them.

Hi Phillip
Can I use a Column chart and instead of having the columns siting side by side can I have the green column in front of the red column?  If so how do I achieve that?


Phillip BurtonDirector, Practice Manager and Computing ConsultantCommented:
First of all, Change Chart Type to the standard Column (which looks like it is side-by-side).

Make sure you can see the Properties window (press F4 if you can't see it).

Then click on the second data series (the one which is to the right of the other one).

In the Properties window, expand General - CustomAttributes, and change DrawSideBySide to False.

Then preview the report. If you can't see the green bars, then back in Design, in the Chart Data window, drag your first set of values down below the second set.
