I'm trying to create a PivotChart that looks like this:



However, since my data is organized like below I cannot find a proper way to do that.





And my chart ends up looking like this, where I have a line for each sales stage:



Is there any way I can sum the the perceived sales value, so that I only get one line and not a line for each sales stage or that not possible in a Pivot

Have you tried using a stacked line for the perceived data and then formatting the first three lines to have no line?

The only problem with the solution is the legend as it displays 'Stage 4 - perceived value'. I would like it to just display 'Total perceived value' or just 'Perceived value'.



Is there anyway I can rename/customize the legend of a PivotChart? I've tried to just put in a blank space in the PivotTable. However, that also affects the legend for the column:

Not as far as I know.

You might have to make a regular chart using the pivot table data in order to get the flexibility you want.
