SSRS: Adjust Bar Chart Width

This might be useful if you have a lot of series in your groups and you need to maximize your real estate on your chart. Or maybe you have an area chart type in the background that you can’t read because the columns are so wide. Below I will show you a very easy process of how to adjust the column widths in your SSRS chart.

This first image shows you the default width of the bar chart.

To adjust the width simply select the appropriate series and go to the properties pane and drill down into the Custom Attributes and find the PointWidth. The default value is set to 0.8. You can experiment with the settings yourself to find the size that works for you.

I found that I like to use 0.4 because the column isn’t too wide or small.
