Hello,

I'm using excel 2016. Every time I try to do a bar chart, it comes up as thin lines going up and down. Modifying doesn't seem to help. Where are the bars? How can I get the lines to go away and show me the thick bars that I want? Thanks in advance.

Do you mean a bar (horizontal) or column (vertical) chart?

It sounds like you've just got gridlines then, and no data. Do you see axes and, if so, does the scale look appropriate on them?

It would be helpful if you could put a workbook and screenshot on a file sharing site (eg Dropbox/OneDrive) and post a link back here?
