Experts,

How would I be able to present this data in a graph per year and quarter?  I think it is dual axis.

ie:  Board Operators 1 compared to Board Operators 2 over each year and quarter.

In the chart ribbon, select "Change Chart Type", then select the series and you can select "Secondary Axis" for it.

Hello,

can you mock up a chart with the drawing tools and explain what the desired outcome is?  If you want columns on different axes, then you will need to change the data layout considerably. Before we go into that, I'd like to know what you really want to show.

cheers, teylyn

Ouch, my eyes are hurting. 3D column charts --- noooooooo!

Gowflow, with all due respect, but how does that answer the question? That's just a plain data dump into a chart.

For a comparison between two data sets, you would need to chart one group of data on a different axis. Using a column chart, this would require a staggered data layout.

This would be a bit of work on the original data.

Hence my question to pdvsa for clarification and a mock-up of the desired result.

Why don't we wait for the response before charging into blind click-and-chart activities?

cheers, teylyn

well for me it was a simple question but if your read it to be complex then yes it can be a possibility, so then lets wait to see OP's answer.

Experts, thank you.  I appreciate the comments.   I split them between all.  My dataset has been changing and is now in a different format. Once I know more I will possibly ask another question.
