Hi,

I need to create a scatter plot of d2H vs d18O data, as shown in columns D and E in the attached spreadsheet.  I also need to show, using symbols and/or colors, which "category" (from column A) each data point belongs to and which "site" (from column B) each data point belongs to.  Finally, I need to be able to show the ID of the point (column C).

Thanks!

Hello,

If you want different colors and different symbols, then you will need to create different series for each color and/or symbol combination. Lay out the data to support that, for example with the aid of a pivot table or by manual copy and paste.

To show the ID of the point, you can use the free XY Chart Labeler Add-in, available at
http://www.appspro.com/Utilities/ChartLabeler.htm

This will be some work to set up and is not necessarily trivial. The chart will need a lot of tweaking. Questions of this magnitude typically go for more points.

cheers, teylyn

Thanks Teylyn.  This got me there.  I especially appreciate the link to the data labeler, which works perfectly.
