How do you create a bubble chart in PowerPoint with 2 or more series, each referencing a different set of X values? (Without using VBA or macros, that is.)

    Make a bubble chart with one data series.

    Click the chart, choose Chart Tools Design Tab | Select Data.

    Click Add.

    In the Edit Series dialog, input the data ranges, or click the select range button on the end of the dropdown/input field and select series name (for the legend), X, Y and size values on your spreadsheet. Click OK to add the series.
