    How do you do this bit? You can format the chart as you need. Here I don’t fill the Total series and change the total labels as Inside Base in Format Data Series dialog/pane and Format Data label dialog/pane.

    After 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)

      But then the y axis would not be correct though ?
