I am using Access 2007 to create graphical representations of certain database data.  I have a Pivot chart that measures the cost and the quantity of a particular item on a month to month basis.  Both cost and quantity are measured as line graphs.  The problem is that the cost is always so high that the quantity get buried in the mud.  I have be able to create a new series for the quantity, with it's own seperate Y axis scale.  However the secont measuring axis is alway the same as the first.  How do I change the scale of the new group so that I can bring it's line up out of the mud.

You can do this with a "Secondary" Access with a standard Chart...

Would this be an acceptable alternative?

Hi,  I am sorry for the elapse in time, regarding my response...I actually found that I had just made a rather dumb mistake in my attempt to form a second group.  So actually I resolved my problem about 5 minutes after posting the problem...Work, work, work.
