Hi all,

In the screenshot below, I created a bar chart using the data of columns "done" and "in progress".
To compare with the estimate, for each epic, I want to add a bar using the column "initial estimate".

How could I do this with Excel 2011 on Mac?

Best regards,

The current bar chart and the data

I think what you are after is a clustered stacked column (or, in this case: bar) chart.  This can be achieved with a staggered data layout and some clever formatting of a stacked horizontal chart.

Jon Peltier has an excellent step by step tutorial on his web site:

Have a go at that and if you get stuck, pipe up.
