# Control Bar Width with Graph Object

## Control Bar Width with Graph Object

Price: FREE

Before I start investing even more time than I already have trying to figure this out, does anyone know if it's possible to directly vary the width of a chart's series of bars using the MS Graph object? In other words, if I have two series, and if the dollar value of one bar series is twice that of another, can I make that series twice as wide as the other?
