Hi

I have two sheets in a spreadsheet containing data in range A2:G10. How do I generate one graph that has two lines: one for each set of data.

A sample file would be helpful.

Also, your range on each worksheet is A2:G10, yet you say that results in one line per worksheet.  What range are you actually trying to plot?

The solution depends on the chart type. However, adding two series from different sheets can be generally described as:

1) Right click on the chart
2) Click Select Data...
3) Click "Add" under Legend Entries (Series)
4) Navigate to one of the sheets and select the data for the chart
5) Repeat steps 3 and 4 for the second set of data

Hope this helps.
