Description nivag 2007-08-23 00:49:19 UTC
With 4 columns of data (2000, 2001, 2002, 2003), both 'Columns' & 'Bar' combine
the values for 2001 & 2002 in the display.  Seems you need to invoke the 'Stock'
option and then go back to 'Columns'.

@nivag: yes confirmed. Indeed, it looks like that the values for 2001 and 2002
are combined. But the fault is, that the data serie for 2002 are aligned to the
2nd Y axis after switch back from stock to columns. (See Options Tabpage of the
Data series) Great job to found this. Thx
@BM: One for you.
Comment 4 bjoern.milcke 2007-08-28 13:03:25 UTC
Sorry, I don't understand what's combined here? One thing I see is that you
probably want to use the first row as labels. You should check that in the
wizard, otherwise the years become part of the data, which you probably do not

The second thing is that the third series (Column C) is attached to the second
y-axis. That's probably because you switched to stock chart type 3 or 4 and back
to column.

Comment 5 nivag 2007-09-09 03:25:24 UTC
More accurately, the bar for Column 'C' is twice as wide as the other columns
and is superimposed on top of the other 3.

I have ammended the summary to reflect this, which is essentially why I raised
this bug report - though I note that 'bm' on Tue Aug 28 12:03:25 +0000 2007
observed other problems that I had not noticed! 

I can still reproduce this using OOo2.3 M4 RC1.

The problem persists, even if I initially set the check boxes in the Data Range
tab to indicate that both the first row and first column are labels.
Comment 6 bjoern.milcke 2008-01-16 10:14:39 UTC
Workaround: As I said before, the problem is that "Column C" is attached to the
second y-axis. Open the object properties of that series and select the
"Options" tab. There you can attach the series back to the first y-axis. This
should help.

Problem seems to be that switching to stock and back leaves one series at the
second y-axis.
