    Am I missing something?

    Using office 2007, and picot tables I'm trying to create a bar chart from a pivot table which includes filtered data from a large table full of irrellevant information... what I have in my pivot table is essentially the following table:

    when i go to chart it, it has the product type as an axis category, which is fine, but i want it to let me make Product A red and Product B blue (for instance)

    i have no idea why i don't know how to do this.
    Can someone offer a tip? There's a lot of date, and it would be very involved to scrub it to post an actual worksheet.
    date product sum of total
    Sep-10
    Prod A $$$$$
    Prod B $$$$$
    Oct-10
    Prod A $$$$$
    Prod B $$$$$

    I knew i was missing something. i just had to move the categories to the column instead of row headings and it all made sense.
