  • Hi,

     

            You can set the color, you can go to the series property and go to Fill option and assign each category with the color you want.

  • Hi Milli_22,

    To change the colors on the chart using a built-in color palette

    1.       Open the Properties pane.

    2.       On the design surface, click the chart. The properties for the chart object are displayed in the Properties pane.

    The object name (Chart1 by default) appears in the drop-down list at the top of the Properties pane.

    3.       In the Chart section, for the Palette property, select a new palette from the drop-down list.

    To define your own colors on the chart using a custom color palette

    1.       Open the Properties pane.

    2.       On the design surface, click the chart. The properties for the chart object are displayed in the Properties pane.

    3.       In the Chart section, for the Palette property, select Custom.

    4.       In the CustomPaletteColors property, click the Edit Collection () button. The ReportColorExpression Collection Editor opens.

    5.       Click Add to add a color. Select a color from the drop-down list or select Expression and specify a hex value for a specific color, such as ff6600 for "Orange".

    For more information about hex values, see Color Table on MSDN.

    6.       Click Add to add more colors to the palette.

    7.       When you are done, click OK.

  • Just to add on the above steps. You will be required to move the colors you added at the top level. I guess the max colors we may have is 16 and you need to shift the one you want to see in your graph at the top position.

    Thank you.
