Hello Faisal,

I used VBA code to create a color-coded bar chart based on different criteria.

Copy and paste the following VBA code:

Code:
Sub CreateChartWithConditionalFormatting()
    Dim ws As Worksheet
    Set ws = ThisWorkbook.Sheets("Bar Chart") ' Adjust if your sheet name is different
  
    ' Create the chart
    Dim chartObj As ChartObject
    Set chartObj = ws.ChartObjects.Add(Left:=100, Width:=375, Top:=50, Height:=225)
    With chartObj.Chart
        .SetSourceData Source:=ws.Range("A1:C5")
        .ChartType = xlColumnClustered
    End With
  
    ' Apply conditional formatting
    Dim series As series
    Set series = chartObj.Chart.SeriesCollection(2) ' Series 2 corresponds to column B
  
    Dim point As point
    For i = 1 To series.Points.Count
        Set point = series.Points(i)
        Select Case ws.Cells(i + 1, 3).Value ' B values are in the third column
            Case Is > 90
                point.Format.Fill.ForeColor.RGB = RGB(0, 255, 0) ' Green
            Case Is >= 50
                point.Format.Fill.ForeColor.RGB = RGB(255, 255, 0) ' Yellow
            Case Else
                point.Format.Fill.ForeColor.RGB = RGB(255, 0, 0) ' Red
        End Select
    Next i
End Sub

thanks for your reply. This is not possible without VB programming?

regards,

Thanks for your appreciation. We can't apply conditional formatting directly to charts in Excel because the software is designed to handle data formatting and chart visualization separately. Microsoft Office removed its conditional formatting options from charts so it's not possible to do it dynamically in charts.

But you can change the Bar color manually using Format Data Series. In Sheet 1 I changed the bar colors manually based on the conditions.

Therefore, only VBA is available to apply coloring based on the Bar chart based on conditions.
