Excel diagram with 2 y-axis


Which property has to be set to avoid overlapping of the green data bar,
blue and red data are displayed on the left y-axis, the green one is
displayed wit the right y-axis. I want to see the 3 data bar side by side
without overlapping.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Click on one of the Green data bars, right click and select Format Data Series and set the Gap Width to maximum.

Does that help?
Guenter HaslingerTest engineerAuthor Commented:
Yes and NO

It works on series point 1, 2 and 4, but it doesn't on 3 and 5 ???

It seems that it works on the series points where the green bar is
the largest ............

It works ... after changing the gap on  the blue AND green AND red series,
I don't know the rules, but after MANY changes (a little more, a little less) it works ....

While formatting the Green Bars Data series, select the Primary Axis, for Plot series on, to see if you get the desired output.
