Chart to represent sale number by individual contrubtion vs total

I need help on how to create a chart to represent sales number by individual 
contributor vs total.

Alvin = $50
Mary = $150
John = $80
Kate = $120
Total = $400 

The chart should show a graphical representation of $400 as the total, and 
it shows how each person contribute to the chart.

One way would be to plot the data, not including the total as a stacked 
column.  Alternately, you could plot the data without the total as a column 
chart and then plot the total as a line on the same chart.  Just make a 
second series with each item the total.

Demographic chart?
Hi, I need to create a demographic chart in Excel, but I can't find the proper chart type. Is there a suitable chart type? I've gone through all options I can think of for a regular bar chart.

Does anyone know of an adequate solution? BR - Aggie Hi, They are also known as Tornado charts or population pyramids.

quick charting question for similar charts on multiple sheets
Hi, just wondering if there is a quick solution to my problem. I have several charts, all virtually identical except for the data values in them, and i have one chart per sheet, and about 100 sheets.

Just wondering if there is a quick way to select them all, line them up identically on each sheet, with all the same size/formating etc.?

Simple State Diagram flow chart in Visio?
