Stacked chart - Need overlapping!!!

I have created a chart that has multiple data.

Goal - 2000000
Present - 4,500,000
January - 450,000

I have the column stacked on top of each other.  

BUT THE PROBLEM IS that if someone is reading the graph they think that 
presently we are at 6,500,000.  Because the goal is below it @ 2,000,000 and 
it adds the presently on top of it.

I need them to over lap each other.  So the numbers on the left are correct. 
 I have used a stacked column graph.

Don't stack the columns then. Use Cluster column chart type instead.
Set the overlap value to 100.

how to chart who was working when
Hi there, I'm looking for some help in producing a chart. My organization has hired about 100 folks since 1991, each on contracts of varying lengths of time. Some peoples' contracts have ended, and some have been renewed.

Pivot charts formatting
Hi, I want to change the formatting imposed by default in a pivot chart and I want that changed formatting to be retained permanently. For example, for my bar chart, for the different series I have selected colours / patterns but every time I refresh the pivot table / chart; excel falls back to its own colour coding. Any way to get around this? Many thanks in anticipation. Not directly. The only way to simulate this is to record a macro of the formatting changes that you make and then set it up to run whenever the PivotChart calculates. Assuming your pivot chart is on a seperate shee...
