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."

you are using wrong chart type. your is Stacked Line with Markers, but you should use Line with Markers
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)
