of the counties and the number of accidents for 5 years for each county

Default error message "Some chart types cannot be combined with otherchar

Hi,

I have not heard of that warning happening sporadically. It only happens
when you try to combine charts that will not mix.
When you say it sometimes works is that when trying the same mixture on
the same chart or another chart that looks similar?

Cheers
Andy

I am also getting the same message. I am trying to create a scatter graph
using a) draft selection and b)what score they got. I have 9 tables created
1997-2005 with the same info in all of them. The graph creates 97-04 but when
i add 2005 to the information then the warning comes up. Why does it work
with 8 years of info but not with 9?

Excel 2007 is less flexible when combining different chart types. For
example, in Excel 2003 you could add a line or XY series to a stock
chart. Excel 2007 doesn't let you add any type to a stock chart.
