I have a graph that needs to be done side by side. an example would be you have two sets of dates. one date set is jan 1, 2011 - jan 7, 2011 and the second set is march 12, 2011 - march 19, 2011. what I need to know is how to have a side by side comparison from both of these date sets vertically. so the first date set would be on the left and the second date set would be on the right. my data looks like this...

date         |   hour   |   mw
1/1/2011       1        500
1/1/2011       2        500
1/1/2011       3        500
1/1/2011       4        500
1/1/2011       5        500
1/2/2011       1        500
1/2/2011       2        500
1/2/2011       3        500
1/2/2011       4        500
1/2/2011       5        500
1/3/2011       1        500
1/3/2011       2        500
1/3/2011       3        500
1/3/2011       4        500
1/3/2011       5        500

3/12/2011     1        500
3/12/2011     2        500
3/12/2011     3        500
3/12/2011     4        500
3/12/2011     5        500
3/13/2011     1        500
3/13/2011     2        500
3/13/2011     3        500
3/13/2011     4        500
3/13/2011     5        500
3/14/2011     1        500
3/14/2011     2        500
3/14/2011     3        500
3/14/2011     4        500
3/14/2011     5        500

Bind each set of data to a gridview with a style of "display:inline"

The method of rendering the tables is rather irrelevant.  The end result will be two table elements.  If you simply add a "style=display:inline" to those tables, they will display side by side.

nevermind. I used a union on the data and created strip lines to solve this problem. Here is the code.
on page load i put:

CurrentChart.ChartAreas["ChartArea1"].AxisX.IsMarginVisible = false;
                CurrentChart.ChartAreas["ChartArea1"].AxisX.LabelStyle.Interval = 24;
                CurrentChart.ChartAreas["ChartArea1"].AxisX.MajorGrid.Interval = 24;
                CurrentChart.ChartAreas["ChartArea1"].AxisX.MajorTickMark.Interval = 24;
                CurrentChart.ChartAreas["ChartArea1"].AxisX.Interval = 24;
                CurrentChart.ChartAreas["ChartArea1"].AxisX.StripLines.Add(new StripLine());
                CurrentChart.ChartAreas["ChartArea1"].AxisX.StripLines[0].StripWidth = 168;
                CurrentChart.ChartAreas["ChartArea1"].AxisX.StripLines[0].BackColor = System.Drawing.ColorTranslator.FromHtml("#eeeeee");
                CurrentChart.ChartAreas["ChartArea1"].AxisX.StripLines[0].IntervalOffset = 168;
                CurrentChart.ChartAreas["ChartArea1"].AxisX.StripLines.Add(new StripLine());
                CurrentChart.ChartAreas["ChartArea1"].AxisX.StripLines[1].StripWidth = 168;
                CurrentChart.ChartAreas["ChartArea1"].AxisX.StripLines[1].BackColor = System.Drawing.ColorTranslator.FromHtml("#99ccff");
                CurrentChart.ChartAreas["ChartArea1"].AxisX.StripLines[1].IntervalOffset = 0;

                
                Build_daily_Graphs();

private void Build_daily_Graphs()
        {
            try
            {
                CurrentChart.DataSource = Get_WPP_Period(ReportType);

                CurrentChart.Series["WPPSeries"].XValueMember = "study_date";
                CurrentChart.Series["WPPSeries"].YValueMembers = "mw";

                CurrentChart.Series["MinSeries"].XValueMember = "study_date";
                CurrentChart.Series["MinSeries"].YValueMembers = "minmw";
                CurrentChart.Series["MinSeries"].Color = Color.Red;

                CurrentChart.Series["MaxSeries"].XValueMember = "study_date";
                CurrentChart.Series["MaxSeries"].YValueMembers = "maxmw";
                CurrentChart.Series["MaxSeries"].Color = Color.Red;
                
                CurrentChart.DataBind();

               
            }
            catch (Exception ex)
            {
                Response.Write(ex.Message);
            }

        }
