I have the following table:

                    2011           2012         2013    
Visitor#         10               5               5                
%                    50              25             25      

I would like to indicate both the # and the % in the same bar graph - but am not able to.

Please advise.

Thank you.

Close, but I was hoping to indicate the number within the bar, and the percentages above the bar.

sktneer - please confirm how you got the % above the bars, with the % sign.

Thank you.

I see your chart type is a stacked column - without fill I take it. Please confirm your methodology.

Commented:
I am able to recreate - with percentages - remove the fill from a stacked chart - did you manually enter the % sign - or am I missing a step here?

Thank you.

Yes it is 2D Stacked chart.
Format the % Data Series to set the fill color to No Fill and Border Color to No line.
Format the Data Labels for % Series and set the Label Position to Inside Base and set the Custom Number formatting with #,##0" %";-#,##0" %"

Hope this helps.
