Graphing With Proportional Intervals On X-axis Line Graph

Aug 14, 2014

I'm simply trying to graph my data on a line graph in Excel. see the attached.

The issue is that the spacing on the x-axis is all equivalent. I want the space between the initial and 1st month to be very small while the space between 6 month and 12 month be larger.

So at the end of the day, the line will be kind of crunched down from the beginning and goes up at the 6 month data point.

If I have data that shows one year back information, how do I get my chart to have the last date showing up on the axis (the date label) to always be the most current date?

I'm trying to make a line graph with specific increments on both the x and y axis. Now, I can make specific increments on one, but have to sacrifice the other in order for me to label the lines. Im not sure how to get around this. I'll just type out what i'm trying to do and maybe you smart people can help me here.

Okay, both the x and y axis must be in increments of 8,10,12.5,16,20,25,30, and 35.

The first line should be labeled "Indicated magnification, and should have the values 8,10,12.5,16,20,25,30, and 35... the same as the x and y values, making the line a straight linear line.

The second line should say "actual m value" and have values of 10,12.5,15.5,20.5,25,31,37.5, and 44.

The third line should say "actual n value" and have values of 10,13,16,21,26,32,38.5, and 45.

I have been given a task to create a line graph who has 10 categories and each category has 5 different values. I need to plot a line graph, so that those 10 categories should appear on the Y-axis instead of X-axis.

I have some numeric data that has to be put on a log chart. but there is no option for log charts. so i converted my data to log and then drew a chart but i am unable to edit the axis intervals and starting axis value. whenever i change the value it gets back to its default value,ie 1. can anyone tell me how to draw log chart or how to edit axis intervals and starting axis value?

I want to use a line graph to display an amount over time - that's the easy part. On the other hand, I would like to have to group the lines based on a value.

A short example: Imagine you own 3 different stores and you're selling oranges. So your table looks like this: http://img179.imageshack.us/my.php?image=orangeshm4.jpg

Now I'd like to have one graph (3 different graphs won't work as the rows increase -I need to select the whole column as data source):

Date on the x axis, Oranges sold on the y axis, and one line per store (e.g. a green one for store A, a red one for B and a blue one of C, doesn't matter).

Could I make the year the X-axis and make 2 y-axes on the same graph in excel that each datasets would be correlated to (eg. for money it'd be from 0 to 300 while for percent it'd be from 0 to 50)

I need the two x axis to be pressure and solubility and the y axis to be velocity, with the data being demonstrated by a single plot (I have only managed it with two plots which does not demonstrate solubility's relationship to pressure ).

For example at a pressure of 200 PSIA (lower x-axis) and solubility of 0.024 mol % (upper x-axis) velocity was found to be 1 m/s.

I'm using Excel 2007 and I want to plot data vs dates. Furthermore I want the dates on the dates axis to increment by month not by a certain number of days. So something like this:

1-Jan-09 1-Feb-09 1-Mar-09 ...

There's the Major/Minor Units on the Axis Options screen but I cannot type in a constant number since the number of days for each month is different.

how do you create a graph with a field such as vendors on the X-axis, but with dollar values spent on the left side of the y-axis and percentage of total dollars spent on the right side vertical axis?

Each cell in Range("A1:A2000") contains a remark, each phrase or remark is Between 5 & 70 characters all written without line feeds (carriage return,i mean Alt Enter) Just spaces between words. What I would like to do in every cell is to force a line feed (Alt Enter) every 10 characters, and if the 10th character happens to be in the middle of a word I want the line feed to be inserted at the end of this word. Note that the phrases are not necessarily multiples of 10.

I'm trying to do a line chart showing two teams and their cumulative scores over the period of a game. I've attached a sample with mock data. Is it possible to change the x-series of the charts to display custom time intervals like 0 min 1 min, 2 min, 3 min, 4 min, etc? Currently the x-series only has labels for each specific time there was a change in value. I've tried to change the scale but the options that I want aren't there.

I am trying to add a secondary axis for a graph but it is not displaying as it normally does, instead of the columns remaining side by side they overlap. I don't normally have any issue with this so I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong. I've attached images to show what i mean.

There is probably a really simple solution to this, but I have a column 'A' of data, with various numbers, and a column of data 'B' with letters from A to Z. However when I try and plot this on a scatter graph, the x axis uses numbers rather than letters, with data points all over the place?? I'd like the X axis to have the letters A to Z, and the data to stack up vertically when there is a few different numbers correpdoing to 1 letter. Specifically, a scatter graph

On my graph the bottem axis shows 1-30, I'd like to change this to 30-1 as I track change over the last 30 days. I tried selecting reverse axis but it reverse's the data as well. Is it possible to change the axis text only, eg latest entry will be one and the 30 day old data will be 30.

I would like to graph the data shown below using a scatter graph. However, when I use the cart wizard it assigns numerical values to each data point and then plots the data accordingly. How can I get the scatter graph to group the assets with the same ratings together? Note, I don't want to have to assign values to assets with the same rating each time. I have attached the spreadsheet so you an see the problem.

I have a pivot chart which has one Axis field (Cell Ref2) and one Sum of Values field (which is a table series of percentages calculated from formulas)

I see the graph like I'd expect, but I'm struggling to get it to show percentages rather than basic integer units on the y-axis? Usually I would imagine to just right click on the y-axis : Format Axis, and expect to see something to change the display units, but it is only for hundredths thousands etc rather than a percentage ? The units themselves in the table for that value series are in percentages so I don't see why it isnt showing the percentage units in the first place.
