It is a normal phenomenon that human beings take most of the simple things for granted. Take this case, one of my blog readers sent me a mail asking how to display the total on top of a stacked chart in SSRS. The first time I read it, I was almost going to blurt - just enable some property to display subtotals. But the more I thought about it, the more elusive the property became and that is when I realized there is no such property. So for the benefit of all, I thought about posting the workaround that I devised for this.
