I'm having trouble charting 3 lines of data to the same y axis.  See attached example.  

The chart seems to be summing the data??  What am I doing wrong?

you're using a stacked line chart. Change the chart type to an unstacked line chart (one symbol to the left).

cheers, teylyn

You are using a "Stacked Line with Markers" but you need to have a "Line with Markers" chart type.
Right click on a line and select "Change a series Chart", and select the correct chart type.
