I would like to have a chart with the following:

When I select the column for a second axis it selects all data. What

...Format Cell as True/False
OK. It's been a while but I could've sworn that I once was able to format a

Is this possible or have I confused it with another application.
Sounds like you are remembering Access database tables.

Thanks for any help.
Select the chart, press the equal key, then select the cell with a
mouse. This adds a text box in the middle of the chart, which you can
move around and format as needed.

Using Excel, is there a way to merge multiple charts with different data
series into one to demonstrate a direct comparison of the data series within
one single chart. I've got 4 charts of the stacked column type.
Tufte calls them small multiples, Cleveland calls them trellis displays. I
call them panel charts.
Take a look at the examples on this page.
Another option is to stick with your 4 charts, however, you can size and
align them. Here's a link to a simple macro that sizes and aligns all charts

last 3 are small scale data types. So, the result is 2 data series
