# Charting Data to Compare

1. ## Charting Data to Compare

I have the following data to chart (Using Excel 2003)
It's for several different hospitals and I want a chart for each hospital.
I want to compare 4 quarters from the year 2005 & 2006 (side by side) in a
bar graph for each year and then the YTD data as well (side by side). The
YTD is the sum of the 4 quarters. I want this all on one chart. The data is
as follows:

Hospital XYZ

Q1 Q2 Q3 Q4 YTD
2005 2134 1958 2647 2016 8755
2006 2149 2034 2457 2314 8954

The chart will have 10 bars, Q1 side by side, Q2 side by side and so on...
How should I group the data in order to achieve this end result?

ANY help would be greatly appreciated, Karen

Just select the range as you entered in this post. Make sure to select also
the empty cell in the left upper corner. If this empty cell is A1, select
the rectangle A1:F3, and follow the chart wizzard.

In step 1 of the Chart Wizard, you get to choose from a wide variety of
chart types. Did you try it? What didn't work?

If you can do it manually, turn on the macro recorder while you do it. Then
make adjustments to the resulting code.
