Can't sort a Stacked Pivot Chart

Hi
I have stacked Pivot Charts where the results are displayed as 100%. I want to sort the chart so that the maximum vacant percentage (87.5%) is at one end and the smallest vacant value  (18.23) is at the opposite end.
When I right click and try and sort it form the smallest to the largest percentage it wont sort correctly. I suspect it is sorting on the sum of vacant values and not the calculated  percentage.

Any idea how I can sort the pivot chart. sample file attached?

the markers appear in the order they are listed on the sheet.  Sort your sheet by what you want and the chart will change. In the Pivot Table, you can also drag items for a manual sort. I also notice that the chart object needs to be a bit wider to show all the x-axis labels. The legend could also be moved to the top or bottom so the chart takes less horizontal space.
