    How to make bars with different equation on a bar chart?

      My problem is that I have to display different bars with different equations on a single bar chart.

      For example:- I have 3 fields in my excel sheet. I want to make one stacked bar for each field and show them on the same bar chart.

      Please help!

      Thanks in anticipation!

            are these going to be 1 dimension  with 3 different expressions or 3 dimensions


            can you provide a sample of the excel and/or any qvw you may have started?

              maybe using




              as one (calculated) dimension and




              as expression.


              hope this helps

                  I want to show one bar for each dimension. If it can be shown as 5 bars grouped together for one dimension and all three dimensions on one single chart then better.

                  Otherwise, at least what I need is to show all three dimensions on one single chart. Each bar having it's own equation.
