Hi gigifarrow,
If you can, upload the spreadsheet, but I suspect it is empty because you chose a stacked line chart. Try a different type of chart to see if it is still empty

Hard to say.

This is why you should always post a sample database, also include a clear graphical example of the exact results you need, based on the sample data.

We do not know:
The structure of the data.
The type of chart you have now.
The type of chart you need.
The exact look of the chart that you need (this sounds like a custom chart...)
What version of Access you are using.
...etc

So instead of us creating a solution and you saying,..."No I want..."

...Just show us clearly what you have, then show us exactly what you want...

I do not understand what happened  I know I uploaded a example of my database.

I know that there is no way you can help me without an example. That is why I uploaded a example.


Sorry to all .

OK, thanks for the sample.

But I still need a clear graphical example of the exact results you need, based on the sample data.

Not in words, ...but an actual picture.
It does not have to be anything fancy, but it needs to show me what you want.

I don't see what "Loss", "Missing", "Inoperative", ...etc. match to in your table?
...So I will presume it corresponds to the "Problem" field
I will also presume that the date in the chart is the "Date Found" field
Finally I will presume that you can filter the chart rowsource on your own (Here I will filter for May-Aug 2013)
