    Question 100% stacked bar chart shows wrong distribution - axis not the issue

    My 100% bar chart does not show the correct distribution for the data. I checked the setting for the horisontal axis, but they seem correct at min 0 - max 1:

    I might be wrong but wouldn't you want a stacked bar chart rather than 100% stacked?

    Well, this is probably because they do not really total 100%! Excel is spreading a smaller total to fill 100%.

    Hah! You absolutely spotted my mistake - I have a big data set and had copied some formulas, and forgotten that there is a fourth value for this variable - adding this of course solves my problem!
