Excel Graphing

Hello Experts,

Attached is the workbook that I need help with. In the sheet named "Graphs - Ivory" I created 4 graphs using the data on ivory in the sheet named "Data." These 4 graphs (for my L readings, a readings, b readings, and DE readings) came out right. However, when I try to make a graph containing all of the data, the lines I get on my graph are wrong. If someone could make me a graph that displays the L readings, a readings, b readings, and DE readings accurately, it would be appreciated.

Thanks,

Drew

do you want something like I did for you in the Data sheet? (see attachment)

I mean chart lines are OK, but seems different comparing your one by one chart because of values on Y axis. That´s why your chart looks like up and down, and the chart with all 4 lines together quite flat (because your charts have on Y axis value range 1-2 units but in the "all in one" chart range is 0-70)

Thanks! What you did is exactly what I was looking for. Can you explain how you did it?

I understand that the lines will look more flat, but all my lines were wrong. I'm going to attach the one that I made and maybe you can tell me where I went wrong? The graph will be at the bottom of "Graphs - Ivory."

Just right click on the chart, choose Cahnge chart type and choose proper one

just line chart should display a data values as they are in the source and Stacked shows you a trend (so axis, in your case Y does not show exact values as they are in the data  source)
