Use the Show Me if you're ever unsure what you need to build a standard chart type.<br /><br />As an example, connect to Superstore Sales. Choose Region, Category and Sales.

I solved the synchronous axis problem by having a unseen element in both charts which was the maximum value (ie. max of budget and actual in your example).

For example, when adding the border to the budget, not just the width of the light gray bar was increased, but also the height, this can be seen in the first pair of bars where the values are 200 and 150, but visually looks like 200 and 190.Joe Makohttps://www.blogger.com/profile/15643500270169278424noreply@blogger.com
