Please follow below steps to split a stacked bar chart in Excel 2013/2016.

1. First of all, you need to modify the source data based on your need.

In my case, I want to split the sale amounts into two groups, therefore I move one group of sale amounts to a new column beside original source data. See screenshot:

2. Select the new source data, and click Insert > Insert Column or Bar Chart (or Insert Bar Chart)> Clustered Bar. See screenshot:

3. Now a clustered bar chart is created. Right-click the chart, and select Change Series Chart Type from the context menu. See screenshot:

4. In the Change Chart Type dialog box, please click Bar in the left bar, click to highlight Stacked Bar, next click to select the chart with two series, and finally click the OK button. See screenshot:

Now you have created a stacked bar chart which is split into two groups. See screenshot:

Note: This method does not work in Excel 2010 or earlier versions.
