A scatter graph is different from the desired graphs shown on the attached workbook.

Do you want a scatter graph or just the ones shown in the workbook?

Interesting. A question like this would normally go for more than 125 points. It's actually quite complex. Remember that you can raise the points at any time to attract more experts. As a premium service member you have unlimited points. Why not use them?

Attached please find a chart that uses a refined data layout for the chart source. You won't be able to achieve such a clustered-stacked column chart with waterfall appeal from data in a straight table, so the data layout is the most crucial part of the exercise.

The steps to create the chart are outlined in http://peltiertech.com/WordPress/clustered-stacked-column-charts/

I see that you are familiar with the Peltiertech web site, since your file has a screenshot from that site.
