Excel Stacked Column Graph - Part 2

To whom it may concern,

In the attached graph, the scale is completely off with the stacked columns; the 30smth% columns seem to receive the same weight as the 1.8smth% columns. Any ideas on how to remedy this?

Hello,

display the Y axis and see that it does not start at 0. VERY DANGEROUS to hide the Y axis, especially if you don't use a 0 base axis.

Column charts should ALWAYS start the Y axis at 0, unless you want the chart to be misleading. Marketing and politics often do this on purpose.

zero base for column chart y axis
Case in point.

cheers, teylyn
