How to use the Stack and scale feature in an Excel Chart
To use stack and scale in an Excel column chart, you need to format the data series in a specific way. First, you need to select the data series that you want to stack and scale. Then, right-click on the series and choose Format Data Series from the context menu. In the Format Data Series pane, go to the Series Options tab and check the box for Stacked Column. This will stack the values of the series on top of each other. Next, you need to scale the series to fit the chart area. To do this, go to the Fill & Line tab and click on Fill. Under Fill Options, choose No fill. This will make the series transparent. Then, go to the Border tab and click on Solid line. Under Border Options, choose a color and width for the line. This will create a border around the series. Alternatively, add an image to represent the scaling. Finally, go to the Series Options tab again and adjust the Gap Width slider to change the spacing between the columns. You can also change the overlap slider to change how much the series overlap each other. By using these steps, you can create a stacked and scaled column chart in Excel. Microsoft Excel tutorial.
