think-cell chart is covered by this edition of the best-selling PowerPoint book in Germany: The PowerPoint 2003 Handbook by Microsoft Press. In a section about waterfall charts the book authors state, "The ... waterfall chart [shown] could be created with some effort by using a stacked column chart, in which the lower segments are made invisible.
