It has to do with the chart type. Change it to a line or a line with markers and all is well.

Hello,

change the chart type to a "Line with Markers" instead of "Stacked Line with Markers".

In your file, the chart type is "Stacked Line with Markers", which does not work when values for a particular X value don't stack up.

With  "Line with Markers" chart you can see that the two data lines cross.

This scenario cannot be depicted in a stacked line chart. Therefore, the second series will not show in a stacked line chart.

Thanks for the feedback folks! We are a little unfamiliar on how to make this sort of change though from Stacked Line to just Line. Can you provide some details as to where those configs can be made?

simply click on the chart. From the CHart tools tab, select the Design tab, and then click the Chart type button. In the  line category are several sub types to select from. Let me know if you cannot find that and I will make the change for you
