Morning Experts, I'm trying to create a graph on this included data..

I would like the 4 lines on the graph (Each Transaction type) ordered by Date(so date would be going across the bottom)

I have it setup now where it only has one line but the date works fine.

    If you use a pivot chart you can have a line per Trans type.

    Or you can split the data into separate columns for a separate data source for the graph, attached.
