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

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.
