Select all the data, and create a line chart
Select a cell in the table

The chart will display the data for that item

I am having a problem getting a graph to display the variables along
the right axes. The graph sits on a form which is linked to a parent
query. The graph's information comes from a separate crosstab query
that is linked to the form via fields from the parent query. The
graph fields are day (horizontal axis), race time (Y-axis) and race
distance (series field). Unfortunately MS Graph automatically plots
the day field as series and the race distance on the X-axis despite
the fact that in the crosstab query, I have assigned 'day' as a column
