Default Secondary Axis Annual Units sold on 1 Y Axis - Dollar Volume on another

I would like to develop an Excel Chart with the following data. I have a
chart for 1. and 2. below.:

1. Total Units Sold (Values) (y-axis)

2. A series of years X Axis

But I would like to show corresponding Dollar Volume (Price X Quantity) on a
secondary Y Axis. Example below:



Units
Dollar Volume @ $10.00 per unit

10
100

5
50

In the chart below, the 10 50 and 100 values and $ volume should be on the

John,

I believe you want a combination chart with a primary and secondary Y-axis.
In step number one of the chart wizard, go to the Custom Types tab and scroll
down the dialog box until you see the combination chart choices. They a

It's better not to rely on the limited choices Excel provides. Make a Line chart
with both series. Double click on the dollar volume series, and on the Axis tab,
select Secondary.

Thanks - I tried the "Line-Column on Two Axis" and it worked.

But the color scheme is ugly. I would like to simply get rid of the legend,
which is easy, and change the bars to different colors, insead of one color.
Can this be done?

If you want to change individual bar colors, you can select the bar you want
to change and change the color scheme. If you want RED to mean one thing
and YELLOW to mean something else for different X axis labels (and you have
a lot to change), it might be better to have a "STACKED COLUMN" chart with
line for the secondary axis information.

The chart where I have the challenge is "stacked column with 3D visual
effect". There are two series, but the checkbox for series (Y) axis is
grayed out. There does not appear to be a way to add a secondary y axis to
this type of chart. I have a different set of dialog box options for the
Line-Column on Two Axis" chart. It is has the line w/the second set of data
points scaling the bars. It would look much better three dimensionally. Is
there are a way to add an extra axis to the "stacked column with 3D visual
effect"?

John -

That's another good reason for sticking with a 2D chart. A line series never looks
very good in 3D, and any 2D charts represented with a false third dimension
introduces uncertainty in the values being charted.
