How to change gap width in Excel quickly?

Normally the gap width is automatically calculated based on the date and chart area. Saying the chart area is fixed, the space between two series points may be very narrow if there are many data series, or very wide when fewer data series. Therefore, we need to change the gap width manually. This article is going to guide you how to change the gap width in Excel 2007 and Excel 2010 quickly.

    In a bar chart how I can reduce the space of only two bars & not all the bars in a graph.

    i.e. I want to present actual data of 4 qtrs. of last year each separately & same distance in each bar but for current qtr I want to present actual & budget numbers each in a separate bar but no distance in these two bars.

    Hope to hear soon from you.
