Created: Friday, December 28, 2012, posted by Geetesh Bajaj at 3:30 am



When you select the “Invert if negative option” for a chart that has any negative data values in a series, you end up seeing those negative series with an inverted gradient fill. Since there appears little difference between the gradient fill used for positive and negative values as far as appearance is concerned, you may wish your negative series to show in a solid color that contrasts with the positive series. This color can be red (or any other color). In this tutorial, let us learn how you can do so in PowerPoint 2011.

Learn how to change the color of negative value data series to a color of your choice in PowerPoint 2011’s charts.
