Hello Avinash,

I tried it, but from Color properties I can only change background color of chart.

Plot Area option is disabled.

Hi,

Do you mean to change the Chart Bar color?

if so, Chart Properties -> Caption ->background color and Text colorCapture.JPG

If you want to apply the same color in several charts, you can do like the below

Double click the format paint tool, and apply it in your charts..

Hello Settu Periasamy,

If you already have the multiple charts, please use the Format Painter tool.

Select the correctly formatted chart, then select the format painter tool. Then click on the chart you want to reformat

Please note, it only works when you put the brush on the middle of the chart. If you point to the caption it doesn't affect the colors tab.

Hi Vrushali,

You can change the Bar chart color in the same format as i mentioned already..

Select the Chart (Already you have applied color) -> Click the Format Paint Tool ->

Then goto other chart -> Place the Cursor in your Bar -> Just Click it. It will apply..

Edit:

forgot to add.. you can change your bar color using the Colors Tab in Chart properties..
