I will be happy to set up the chart for you and show you how it works. Would you like to send me your file or shall I send you a sample file
Ok, go to www.wikisend.com and upload the file there (no need to sign up). You will then get a page that has the download link and File ID. Copy the download link or the File ID and come back here and paste it in your reply.
Where is the download link, or file ID?
Perhaps I should create a sample file, what do say?

Let's try this
If you see the Finish button you can click at this point, and then we will modify the chart
In other words when you have the chart drawn with 1, 2, 3 in the x-axis let me know
Thanks. Will be happy to help you again
But just in case you want to know how it is done (I assume at this point that you have Excel 2008)
Just plot the chart the you way you did first (when you had 1, 2, 3 in x-axis) then click on the line graph to select it. Then Press CTRL Click and choose Select Data. From this point you can continue with my first instructions, i.e
- Select Series1 from the window on the left, then click the Remove button on top- Select Series2 from the window on the right, then under the Horizontal Categories (on the right) click the Edit button- In the Axis label range field select or type =Sheet1!$A$1:$A$5
- Click OK, and again OK
Sure. Here are the step by step instructions for uploading files
Ok, do you need both lines on the same graph or each on a separate graph
Ok. here you go
Let me know if it needs any tweaking
You're welcome. Glad to help
