Adding a horizontal line to a stacked bar chart

Hello All,

I have a requirement to create a Forecast Vs Quota chart.

The individual Sales Rep forecasts are displayed in a vertical stacked bar chart.

now I want to add a horizontal line which indicates the quota for the entire sales team.

I have the stacked bar done, but I can't figure out how to add the horizontal line into this chart.

Any help would be welcome and greatly appreciated.

Check if this is fine for you.

Of course, here I was not successful in getting a horizontal line for the target.

See if you can manage with this, until you get your desired solution.

1. The data is entered in cells A2:C9

2. Plot a stacked Column Chart using this range

3. Now select the column showing the Target

    a. Change it to scatter chart type ( a combo chart - with stacked column and scatter plot )

    b. while keeping the Target as selected, do the following

         ( 1 ) Change the marker as a Line with

                 -  the thickness as per your choice

                 -  fill color of your choice

Excel is Awesome!! One problem always has multiple solutions.
