Combined bar and line chart (two Y axis) how to make excel know which data goes where

Hello all,

after the super fast problem fixing last time i had a problem, i'd like
to ask the excel collective for some more help... :)

now trying to plot a combined bar chart and line graph. I basically
want all the sets of data except one to appear as columns plotted
against the axis on the left and the last set of data (which is a
cumulative value of the data appearing for the columns) plotted against
the right hand axis as a line.

I can plot the graph fine, but out of the 7 sets of data which i want
to appear as 6 sets of columns and one line, i get four sets of columns
and three sets of lines. How do i tell excel to plot all except the
last set of data against the left and then the last against the right?

Help!

Bug.

Hi,

Easiest way is to create the chart as column based on all data. The
select the series which you want as a line and right click and change
the chart type to Line. Double click the line series and change the Axis
to secondary.

Cheers
