Charting multiple multiples

Hopefully I can explain this in a way that will be
understood.  Data:  

       Place A    Place B    Place C
       FWD Back   FWD BACK   FWD  Back
Org_1   1    2     3    2     1     3
Org_2   2    5     4    6     1     4

I would like to place the data so that FWD and Back data is
stacked on top of each other in different colors, and
placed in one row on a 3-D chart as Org-1 and a second row
as Org_2.  

Any ideas?

If you arrange your data like this:

                Back  FWD
Org_1  Place A   2    1
        Place B   2    3
        Place C   3    1
Org_2  Place A   5    2
        Place B   6    4
        Place C   4    1

you can create a stacked column chart as you described.

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.
