I am creating this report for my boss and he wants a chart that shows both bars and lines on it.  I have been playing with the chart options but I can't seem to figure out how to do something like that.  I found one example on the crystal reports website but it doesn't seem to work properly.  Can anyone help me with this.

Make a bar chart first with both sets of data.  Preview the chart.  Click on a bar so it's selected.  Rt-click -> Chart Options -> Series.  Under "Always Show Selected Series As" change "Default for Chart Type" to "Line".

This is the exact step-by-step for CR9.  Depending on your version of CR the process may be slightly different but this should get you close.
