Why does 9 mean SUM in SUBTOTAL?
It is because Sum is the 9th alphabetically in Average, Count, CountA, Max, Min, Product, StDev.S, StDev.P, Sum, VAR.S, VAR.P.

Select one of your series, right click and choose Format Data Series. On the options tab, change the gap width to a smaller value to reduce the space between columns. This will also increase the width of the columns.
