### Kicka$$ In-Cell Graphs: No 1

Eversince I discovered about Incell graphs in Juice Analytics sometime back, I was itching to use them and develop something fun, intuitive and easy.

--- Format the text to orient vertically**Playing with In-cell graphs:**You can concatenate total values on the top of each graph, you can show average sales, max sales, min sales in seperate columns or together with "AVG", "MIN", "MAX" added in the end of the bar.
