I want to create a scatter diagram graph of results in excel.  But as a background on the graph I want to show regions which the results fall into.  The same background would be shown on the graph if the results are updated. Its like a template graph.  Can this be done in Excel, and if so, how?  If not, do you have a good suggestion on another way to do this.

As an example, have attached a hand-drawn graph of what it would look like for a graph of risk results, in which lines and wording are added to show which risks are 'high', 'medium' or 'low'.  6 points have been plotted.  The number and value of the points may change, but the boundaries should stay the same.

Hi,

You can do it by combining XY Chart and stacked column with no gap
