PivotCharts & Tables

I am trying to compare the data for the months of Dec & Jan using a stacked column chart (looking at how long it takes for order to be inputted and flowed down within inside sales). I am having trouble separating the data so that I can see both months on one chart for the month ie., Dec FP & Jan FP AND Jan RP & Jan RP (example pic of chart I am looking for is attached). What am I not doing correctly? In 'sheet 17' the chart is there but I can't get it to do what I want. I am using the 'order date' as the Dec & Jan date to compare and when I added it to the pivot chart and filtered it I wasn't getting the side by side view of each month (so I took it out). Am I using the incorrect chart?

The formulas in the data tab were created by another person and I was instructed to use the averages in columns I, J, K to put the chart together. When I do the pivotchart and I switch value field setting from count to average, am I averaging the averages??? I feel as if I am but I am not good at pivot tables (sighhhh...how did I get this project?). That's how the person that handed this down to me created the previous charts.

I also couldn't figure out how to add the counts (example DEC CHART) so I manually added the numbers for that example. But I don't want to keep doing it manually if there is a way to do it as I eventually will compare by quarter and/or months for the entire 2015.

Thanks in advance
