overlaying bars / background-color class()

Hello everybody,

I want to display how many items are ordered before an event starts. So I got a simple data-model with two fields: DAYS_UNTIL_START and NUMBER showing the amount at the Special day-combination. I created a chart and added color (< -21 green, < -7 yellow, red) depending on the dimension to Highlight what I want to say. This is the result:


this Looks not bad, but there is one problem: the bars are overlaying each other! You can see this ad -8 (yellow) and -7 (red). To solve this I created another chart using class() to Cluster the data for an overall view. This is the result:

I grouped the data to a 5-day-corridor using class() to avoid overlaying bars. My problem with this chart are the wrong colors. It's too much red

So now I got two Problems. Can anybody help me solving one of These or even both?

Thank you very much!

Can you not just tweak the bar settings in the presentation tab of the chart properties to space the bars out more?

Not really. I choosed the Option continuous axis.
