Current Dashboard:

If I "Swap Rows & Columns":

I want to have the coloring of the top chart with the labels like the bottom. Is there a way to do this?

    Answered my own problem, but I'll post the answer here in case anyone else ever runs into this.

    Using a "Stacked Column" and a modified source data layout, I was able to get the result I was looking for. Since everything except the desired value is 0, the only thing left is the single bar. Since they are now each their own series, I was able to change the colors and still use the first column for the labels.
