    Format the second level of multi-level category axis - clustered chart

    Hi!

    I would like to remove the gaps in my clustered column chart. The gaps represent the empty cells in the source data.
    I ended up using a multi-level category chart (category: time interval, subcategory: countries) to remove the gaps. However, i would like for the subcategory (countries) labels to not show on the horizontal axis. How do i fix this? It seems that excel does not allow to edit independently the categories and subcategories on the axis.

    I didn't find a proper solution to fix my problem on google, so i thought i could try here.

    Hi
    you could try replacing the country names with something small and invisible like a space, and creating a separate invisible dummy series to give you a legend

    I replaced the country names with spaces and rotated the text on the axis 90 degrees. I get pretty good results.

    Thank you.
