Hello Experts,

Having trouble redoing Chart 5 in the attached file. It should look similar to  Chart 4, but using data in rows 112:127.

Whatever happened to that chart wizard in the older versions of Excel?

Thanks!

Hello,

click the chart, click Design on the Chart tools, then Select Data on that ribbon. Now you can click and edit each individual data series and set its source.

At the end of that dialog box, you see a line with <blank series>. This points to data in row 148 and disrupts your chart. Delete the blank series and the chart is fine. See attached.
