How can I do this?  What path would I take?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

By "Data Point" do you mean "Data Series"?

I assume you want two sets of data which are to be shown using a line chart, two lines across the chart; and a third set of data to be shown as bar chart with columns coming up from the bottom of the chart.

I know it is possible to have mixed chart types in Excel. Just had a quick play in PPT and it would be possible in PPT as well.

If you upload some sample data we can take a look.
