Hi Folks
Curious about this is it possible to create a scatter chart where the colour will change depending on the number e.g. for all numbers under or equal to  10 the scatter chart is red, for numbers above 10 it's green...thank you.

The simplest way to do this is to use formulas to split your data into two series, which you can then format independently. See the attached file for an example of this. With the Y-axis values in column B, the formula I used is this:
=IF(B2>10,B2,NA())

The NA() formula produces the "#N/A" error value, which normally you wouldn't want, but on a scatter chart, it removes the marker for that value. Format both series with the same marker shape and remove or adjust the legend, and you will create the illusion of one series with different colors based on the values.

Person eventually went with a different solution - but this worked very well :-)
