Change Color Based on Specific Value?

I have multiple graphs duplicated from one original.

Each has a different filter applied to demonstrate different data.

In graphs where I have New and Old Data, I get a green column (new) and a Blue column (old).

In graphs where I have ONLY old data, my Old data is now represented by a Green column.

Despite the legend indicating what the color indicates, when I have 20 graphs where half of them the color means one thing, and the other half it means something else, it becomes very confusing.

I know I can change the color palet, but that changes ALL colors in the graph.

Is there a way to select a color for a specific value? (i.e. If Data = Old, color = blue).

I don't think there is a way to specify If Data = Old, color = blue

.But you can change the color of the bars on the second graph; right click on any bar and from the pop-up menu select the color you want. All of those bars will now be that color.

The only option I see is to change the entire palette of colors used.

With this option, I can't delegate a specific color for a bar to use, but rather the colors the graph can select from.

The problem this presents is if I use the same 'palette' in 2 graphs, but 1 graph doesn't have 2 value types in it, I end up with the same color being used for different data between graphs (this is where we see Green representing 'New' in one graph, and 'Old' in another graph).

Is there another color change option I'm overlooking?
