HI @rm29606 ,


I thnk you are using a Clustered column Chart. There is no option to have a space betweeen different categories


these are the option available under x -axis in Clustered Column chart, but no option for space in between the bars (categories)





You can check the trick mentioned.




Else you can us the Stacked Column Chart and increase padding.

@rm29606 , I do not see any padding option. You can choose static Start and End to get more space.
