Base data > 256 and I want to make a graph.

I have a file consisting of surveys taken on various dates of a number of participants. Column A is the name, Column B is the item of the survey. Column C, D, E, etc. are dates on which the surveys took place.

I need a graphical representation of the y-axis which is the value of the data. The x-axis are the dates.

Participants and Items should be filterable.

Usually, the number of rows were < 255. In this project the number of rows is > 350 and here I encounter a problem.

Please look at the attached file.

Hi,

What type of chart are you looking for?

Will you consolidate your data?

Hi,
Please take a look at the image.

Example
The colors of the circles on the table match their positions on the graph.
If this info is not sufficient - please ask.

Thanks.

You should use a pivot table and chart with slicer

Look at example Tabelle2

This looks beautifull and promising and I see there is a lot to learn yet. How do I compare 2 or more persons in respect to their query answers? Your solution places the charts next to each other, but they should be on top of each other.  Each graph line should be identified by person and item via a color.

The objective is to compare various people with various item values.

My heart is already jumping with excitement...

Leider, leider

Unfortunately If you select 2 persons in the slicer they are placed adjacent one to another

but you can create 2 Pivot tables, 2 slicers and 2 charts

Thank you for all your effort and concern.  Since I can't place the graphs over each other, I will just take it as a limitation of excel. Leider, leider.  I've done some snipping of datarows down to 255 and my students will have to live with that. I guess, for the next class I'll design a small graphic software to do the job.

Again thank you and I assign all the points to you.
