How can I make a chart that has a series of cluster vertical bars that represent six years, and make every bar simultaneously represent the four fruits I ate that year, broken down by the amount of money I spent on each of the four fruits on the leftmost bars of the six years, and a breakdown by percentage of the money I spent each year on the four fruits individually? Also I want a total of the money spent on the fruit at the top of the bars for each year. Thank you.

Hi MikeyMike,


You should be able to do this with a clustered column chart.


You can see how to create a chart in the video tutorial: Essential Skills Lesson 5-2 Create a simple chart with two clicks.


For the labels containing totals, you can use data labels from a range.

You can see how to apply data labels from a range in the video tutorial: Essential Skills Lesson 5-19 Add data labels from a range.


I have attached an example workbook following your specifications:
