Experts,

I am not certain if debt ratings can be graphed (ie letters...not numbers)
I have attached a db in 2007 format.
The query is what I would like to graph but I dont think letters will plot.

Maybe there is some trick to this.  

thank you

You can't draw characters, but you can add table, where to characters will be assigned some digital rating. You can do it yourself or take here:

Look at sample (open your query as PivotChart)

Ok I opened the query as pivot chart.  I see you added 2 columns (MoodyDigital: 22-[tblRatingsAll_1].[ID] and SPDigital: 22-[tblRatingsAll].[ID].  Am i suppose to see the letter ratings (AAA, BBB, etc etc) along the Y axis or is your comment "you cant draw characters" meaning you cant plot letters on the Y axis?   thank you for the help.

I don't know how you can show letter ratings on Y axis. May be only if you place pivot chart upon some grid with these letter ratings.
Seems it is possible in excel:

but it is not so simple

OK.  I have heard that excel 2013 might be able to label the X axis better but maybe not the Y axis. Seems like the Y axis must be numbers.
