# Excel Chart - multi attribute

How does one create a chart for multi attribute ?

I have three company and I am comparing them with two attributes. I want a chart (bubbel/scatter?) not really sure what kind.

Company A 200,80
Company B 700,80
Company C 500,10

So the 200-700 (doesnt matter if x,y axis) would be one attribute
10-80 would be the other.

how can I do this correctly?

THanks,
SJMP

Please take a look at the attached file. There are 3 sample charts that you can build to compare the data.

Hello,

you can plot two numerical values with an XY chart. Arrange the data as in the attached sample, then select cells B1:C4 and click Insert - Scatter.  To label the data points with the company name, you can download the XY Chart Labeler, which is an immensely helpful tool.

If you have a third attribute, you can create a bubble chart, where the bubble size represents the numeric value of the third attribute.

Thanks - I know how to do scatter plots. but I am still dont know how to do the following.

The X Axis needs to represent the costs
The Y Axis needs to represent the quantity

What I need is one label on the graph for Comp A with their costs right or left, and quantity up/down. So there is only one marker on the graph for the company.  I know I am not making this clear.

But i need both attributes represented together as one mark on the graph. So if X Axis was cost and Y axis is quantity I have them intersecting in the middle of the range. Not at 0.

Right now I am getting three markers for each attribute totally 6. I need three. Sorry I know this is not clear.
