I would like to keep the percentage values but remove the percent sign
from the value axis of a 100% stacked bar chart. Can it be done?

Thanks
Anne

display as 80.  I could not get this to work on the sheet cells format
either. You could right click the value axis, choose Format, choose Number
and type in the format code .00 to make 80% display as .80 but it sounds like
you don't want that.

Do you really need to get rid of the percentage sign? I think it would make
the chart more readable and easier to interpret if it were there. Tufte would
agree.

then use another range, put in a formula like =100*B2 to convert B2 from a
percentage to a number, and use this data in your chart. Put it on another
sheet if your boss would otherwise get confused.

Jon, it's a brilliant suggestion to use an intermediate table to
generate the graph. Thanks a million!

Worksheet space
is cheap, and brainpower to force Excel to do what it doesn't want to is
expensive.

Highlight cells to remove % from
Use Find/replace from top Home menu
Find %
replace - <put in one space using space bar>
will convert to 100x each cell but will still have %
Use Format Cell and use cells as numbers with 2 decimal points
thus it divides all cells by 100 but you end up with cells with the original number without % sign...

yea!

try the following:
- put 100 in an empty cell and copy this cell
- select your other values
- goto 'Edit - Paste Special' and choose 'Multiply' to multiply them
all in one single step

Thanks,
Suresh

Right click on the vertical axis-> change chart type -> and instead of 100% stacked column select stacked column. That is it

I found a different way about it...

I have a data column with the percentage numbers which is formatted as

 0;;     which means: no decimals;no negatives;0 doesn't show

also, no percent sign...
this way I have a clean column of numbers which I could also use as whole numbers if need be.

My solution came in the formula which I use based on that data...
supposing the data column is B, my formula would be:

(A1 * B1%) / C1

Cheers!
