Select all the data, and create a line chart
Select a cell in the table
Choose Data>Filter>AutoFilter
 From the dropdown list in one of the heading cells, select an item
The chart will display the data for that item

Linking graphs to other spreadsheets

The reason that I as is that I have a rather large database that I use to create tables for each day of the month based on activity recieved from a larger database. I use one Pass-Through query as the source for 31 Make Table queries. The reason I have done this is because I need to segregate the activity by date so that I can produce daily averages over the entire month. The reason that I have had to break each one per day is the Pass Through query is huge (returning 7,000,000 + rec...

Have a formula yield a true blank that disconnects graph line
I use a formula to calculate values or use set criteria to yield blanks. Then I graph the data and want the line graph to end where a blank occurs rather than connect the line to zero where the blank occurs. Actually all blanks are plotted as zeros, but I could enter -1 instead of blank and make the scale minimum zero to eliminate this problem if the line did not connect from the last data point to the -1 or zero. This problem is not cured by copy>paste special>values even though the blanks then no longer contain formula but look indistinguishable from real blanks. But they d...
