How would I create a graph for Oct and Sept showing only cells with data in them and displaying the time time over the data points for each day; like this...

Hello,

That spreadsheet does not lend itself to any kind of chart easily. You are basically entering values into a report layout.

I would take a completely different approach: Log all data on one sheet, one line per data point. Columns in the table would be:

Date | time | Type (a dropdown with S, D, P, F, Wt) | Value | Note

From that table you can create any type of report with either formulas or pivot tables and it will be a lot easier to generate charts.

Or you could use one of the many health and fitness apps for mobile devices instead of re-inventing the wheel.

cheers, teylyn
