Any typical Column chart contains two sets of data — one set shows as the Series within your charts, and the other set ends up representing the Categories. By default, the Series show up as the Legend (and columns) within the chart. Categories on the other hand constitute the groups of these individual columns. You can quickly swap the visual representation of Series and Categories in the chart.
