i have a simple line graph in excel. there are 6 lines in the graph and all are displayed with no problems.
i have a cell for each entry i want in the legend. for some reason one of these is not displayed in the legend of the graph.
the series in the chart data range is correct - all cells are included.
in 'select data source-legend entries' all 6 entries for the legend are listed. however, in the graph itself only five of these 6 entries are displayed.
i have spent much time trying to figure this out.
i hope one of the experts has the solution.
thanks
pat

Right click on the axis and select Format Axis. Is there anything there that explains the problem? If not then can you post a picture of what you see and what you want to see?

I have tried all of  these things. I have recreated the graph from scratch in a different sheet and I no longer have this problem.
thanks for your time.
