PNKJ, is your line graph having a fixed number of lines? Crystal report doesn't provide any easy function to increase the line thickness, but you can do this by click on your line (sometime its very hard to precisely selet the line, have to be patient), right click and choose Chart Options->Selected Item. Then you can change your line's thickness.
This method only allow you to change your line thickness one by one, if you have 10 lines, you have to change it 10 times.

I knew that CR 8.5 onward you can use Chart Options->Selected Item, CR7 you may have to do it in the preview mode, I am not so sure about this, I used CR7 long time back ago.
Anyone with CR7 can help on this?

I am using visual studio .net 2003 and te srytal reports that come with .net

The crystal report designer that come together with VS.NET provides very limited function, I can't really remember whether it allow you to change the chart's line thickness or not, I upgraded my version to CR9 long time back.
if you choose the line, right click and can't find the choose "Chart Options->Selected Item" then most probably you can't do it.
It is better to get a crystal report proffesional or developer version, at least version 8.5.
