    Bar chart with secondary axis and overlapping bars

    I have a bar chart using 6 series of data. I would like 3 to be on one axis, and the other 3 to be on the other. for example, I want to have gross margin dollar amounts on the main axis and ggross margin as a percent on the secondary axis. but when I add the secondary axis all my bars overlap. I have attached data so you can see what i am dealing with. any Ideas on how to fix the problem?

    Thanks!

    I can't find anything to suggest that it is possible to do what you want.

    Completely misunderstood your problem. A combination chart using two different chart types will allow two different vertical axis or do as Andy Pope has done and assigned each of the data sets to either the Primary or Secondary axis.
