It’s easy to create a stacked chart in Excel. And it might be not hard for many users to add labels for the data points in the chart. But how to change the labels to percentages in the stacked chart? Here, I recommend the Stacked Chart with Percentage feature of Kutools for Excel to general such a stacked bar with percentage labels easily in Excel.

You can quickly create a stacked chart with showing the percentage labels in Excel as follows:

2. In the Stacked column chart with percentage dialog, please configure as follows:
(1) In the Data range box, please select the data series you will create the stacked column chart based on;
(2) It’s optional. Please specify the range of axis values in the Axis Labels box;
(3) It’s optional. Please specify the range of legend entries in the Legend Entries (Series) box.
