- To post as a guest, your comment is unpublished.· 2 years agoAfter you build the table with percentages as values (instead of nubers), it is WAY more time effective to simply select that table and create a new stacked chart versus changing every data label one at a time with "=colrow". (Or if the chart is already formatted, then simply change the data selection to the table with the percentages)
