    How to get more than 1 set of series in High-Low-Close charts to get different color bars?

    Hello. I have a high-low-close chart that currently has all red bars. I would like every other bar to be red, and the rest to be blue though. However, when I try to change the color of the High-low-close lines, it changes them all at the same time as opposed to letting me change the color of each individually. There are three series in the chart currently. Series 1 are the low data points, series 2 are the high data points, and series 3 are the close data points. When I try to add in a series 4,5, and 6 by selecting the data that would go with every other bar, it doesn't seem to add the data where/how I want it to. I did find this thread here, but I don't understand the part about moving both sets of data to an empty sheet as chart objects. The data is already all on the same page, so I'm not exactly sure what to do. If anyone could give a step by step guide on how to make every other bar in a high-low-close chart an alternate color, it would be very much appreciated.

    It might help if you post what you have so far.

    Attach a sample workbook. Make sure there is just enough data to make it clear what is needed. Include a BEFORE sheet and an AFTER sheet in the workbook if needed to show the process you're trying to complete or automate. Make sure your desired results are demonstrated, mock them up manually if needed. Remember to desensitize the data.

    Hi Jeffrey. Attached is a sample workbook. There's a LOT of data unrelated to the chart in the actual workbook, so I've put only the relevant information in it. Also attached is a JPG of what I want the final product to look like which I just created by screen capturing and editing it in paint. Basically, I'm just trying to make it so that all of the bars that are "time period X" are blue, while all the normal ones are red. Hopefully this helps.

    See how this goes for you. The second set of data (E:G) is on the secondary axis with a second High-Low lines added.

    Select the chart and go to Layout >> Current Selection >> Select the drop down box to see what is in the chart.
