Need to show percentage reduction on bar chart
I have a chart with two stacked columns on it. Say the
values on the left stack are 200, 100, 80 and on the right
stack 120, 40, 20. I want to display the totals on top of
each stack ie 380 and 180. Secondly to the right of the
right hand stack I want to show the percent reduction in
each component. So 40%, etc.
Is there a way to do these two tasks?
Put the totals (380, 180) into the worksheet, and add these as a new
series. The series will be added as another stack, but right click on
it, choose Chart Type, and select a line type to change it. The points
are aligned ...saving a chart
When I make an excel chart, and save it, then try to later retrieve it, I
get back to the spreadsheet and have to start over with a new chart. Can you
save a chart with the properties you selected for the chart intact? The only
way around this so far is to copy the chart to the clipboard and then open
in an image program I am using PAINT for that.
What version of Excel are you using?
I do not have this problem.

How do I add a trendline to a chart based on a pivot table? Is it possible
Did you try this? Right click on a series, and select Add Trendline from
the pop up menu. This works in Excel 2000 and XP (2002), and presumably
for 2003 as well; Excel 97 didn't support pivot charts.

There is a "C" or "(" that is showing up in the middle of my Excel bar chart,
and I don't know how to get rid of it. Any ideas?
Move the cursor slowly up to the character (it's a textbox) until the cursor
changes to the four arrow icon, click once to select the textbox, and press
Delete. It might be easier to select the textbox if you select the "Select
Objects" button (looks like a cursor arrow) on the Drawing toolbar.

If the bubbles are all different series then no. You can reduce the time

then select another and press F4.
