# 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.

Is Excel capable of handling such simple request?

## Third Axis Data - Line Graph

Apr 24, 2007

I have a line graph that contains information for the following products,

Boats , Cars & Bikes.

The chart works well but i would like to show the numbered scale of each product & i can't work out if this is possible in excel.

Currently i can only get two data showing for the axis.

I would like to show all three & just use a color to indicate which data corresponds to which product.

In my attached example: I have data for both Cars (blue) & Bikes (green) but i would like to also show data for the graph scaling for Boats (pink).

## Show Latest Date On Axis In Line Graph?

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?

## To Make A Line Graph With Specific Increments On Both The X And Y Axis

Oct 16, 2008

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 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?

## Line Graph: (line Graph To Display An Amount Over Time)

Dec 30, 2008

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).

## Graphing Multiple Y-axes Datasets (\$, %) On Same X-axis (years)

Mar 6, 2009

I have the theoretical set:

year \$ %
2003 100 10
2004 120 20
2005 145 30
2006 205 40
2007 300 50

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)

## How To Create Engineering Graph With Two X Axis And Single Y Axis

Dec 10, 2012

I need to create a graph with a 2 x axis and a single y axis. For example:

Pressure ( PSIA) Solubility (mol %) Velocity (m/s)
200 0.024 1
300 0.036 1.2
400 0.041 1.8

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.

## Chart Axis Date Intervals

Feb 20, 2009

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.

## Insert Line Feed At Intervals In A Phrase

Aug 24, 2007

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.

## Line Chart Showing Values Over Time Intervals

Feb 18, 2007

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.

## How To Add Secondary Axis For A Graph

Apr 24, 2012

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.

## Plotting Graph With Text On X Axis

Mar 27, 2014

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

## Reverse Graph Axis Text?

Dec 17, 2013

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.

## Scatter Graph X Axis Grouping

Feb 28, 2008

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.

## Category X Axis Labels On Scatter Graph

Apr 4, 2007

I have a set of data which I need to plot both unordered and ranked.

For the unordered (as is) data, a line graph is fine, as it gives the category labels along the x axis.

For the ordered data, i have a row with the ranking in, and then plot an xy scatter graph, so the values increase.

This obviously has the rank numbers along the x axis, not the corresponding category labels.

Is there anyway to force this? I know there are chart labelling add-ins on here, but our IT dept blocks the download.

The attched file is a very small example.

## Format Simple Graph Y Axis Of Pivot Chart?

Nov 19, 2013

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.
