Is it possible to use categorical variables such as (Colour/Department) etc.. to colour the simple bar and column charts)? For e.g. if i have a sales by product chart, and each product belongs to a particular department. Can i create a column chart which shows the sales by product and a colour coding based on the department?
When i use the department as legend, there is a bar corresponding to each department for every product. ie, there are 3 bars corresponding to A,B,C for every product. We will be having more than 100 products and so the bars will be displayed like lines.
