Hello Experts

Is it possible to have a vertical line in an excel area chart?
I have the days on the x-axis and 3 types of data in the y-axis.
Now I want to show the actual day with a vertical line in the diagram.

Thx
guenter

Thx for the fast answer, maybe your last link

Combining Different Chart Types into a Single Excel Chart
http://peltiertech.com/Excel/Charts/ComboCharts.html

can solve my problem.

The first 3 links won't because I use a "Stacked Area" chart,
and the links describe Columnor Line charts.

Highfive + Dolby Voice = No More Audio Complaints!

Poor audio quality is one of the top reasons people don’t use video conferencing. Get the crispest, clearest audio powered by Dolby Voice in every meeting. Highfive and Dolby Voice deliver the best video conferencing and audio experience for every meeting and every room.

Highfive Gives IT Their Time Back

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!
