Excel 2010 chart line graph dilemma

How do I combine multiple scatter charts? I have two "sales-to-cost savings" scatter charts; one showing desired outcomes and another showing actual outcomes. I want to create a single scatter chart that shows both outcomes, kinda like an overlay (see below), so that sales people can see where they are at and where they need to go. I am looking for a solution that accomplishes this desired look. Please, don't suggest alternate layouts or other ways to display data. I need all the data and plot points to apear in one chart.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Hello,

create the XY chart for the first dataset. Then add the second dataset as an additional series.

Right click the chart and then "Select Data", click Add and select the cells for the X and the Y axis manually.

See attached.

cheers, teylyn
