    Is there any way to have the chart data labels inside the bar as below?

    You can use few ChartDirector commands to do similar. The easiest way would be to do something like this:


    With more effort you could finetune it to be whatever you want it to be, but you could consider if the effort is worth it.

    Thanks that works.

    One issue I'm having is how to set the bar width. I've tried select 'dbr.chart.options','width_per_item',30; etc but the width of the bar doesn't change.

    I'd need the widths to align - see chart.

    When you set a defined size for the chart, the bars are layed out to fill the chart. The default space between the bars is 20%. You can change that with the bargap option (0...1). So the option:

    select 'dbr.chart.options', 'bargap', 0.5;

    gives you gaps that are as wide as the bars.

    The `width_per_item` option is used when you set the width of the chart to be 'auto', then the width of the bars times labels define the chart width.
