Hi All - I am stuck on how to do a simple Excel Chart. The Attached JPG shows a Screen Shot of what I get when I hightlite the data & click "Marked Line Chart", as well as a hacked-up version of what I am trying to get the chart to look like.
I do lots with Excel, but never Charts.
Can anyone help?

Your problem is the way your data is organized.

Please take a look at the sample file. There are three charts. One with Original data, one with manually rearranged data, and one with Pivot Table and Pivot Chart.
