I can read your question 2 ways;
A) you data looks like this
x    y
5    10
8    15
Select the data and make an XY chart

B) you have two sets of data
x1    y1
5    10
10  12
17  15
21  20
x2  y2
3     8
7     14
12   19
18   24
Make an XY chart of the first data series
Select all the data (including headers) for second set, and use Copy
Click the chart to activate it
Use Edit | Paste Special .... indicate New Series with x-values in first 
column; press OK
The chart now has both data series

Lookup value off by one row
Hi, Any help you can provide on this would be appreciated. I have a worksheet that identifies how far a number is from target. I created the lookup below to coorespond to the productivity increase for next year. =LOOKUP(C4,LookUpValues!$A$1:$A$402,LookUpValues!$B$1:$B$402) C4 is -10.9, in the lookupValues tab -10.9 is in row 93 column A as is the desired result return of 5.6 in column b, however the lookup function is returning 5.7. The issue may be that the data and the lookupValues tab numbers are not exactly the same. -10.90001 and -10.9004 may display the same, but w...

I have to generate an excel file showing machine capacity by week. our work week is from monday ~friday. with a date field, how do i create weekly totals?

Number of users
I am deploying an MDE Access 2002 application. The clients will pay a "per seat" fee. How can I limit their number of users to the number of seats they have purchased? Ideally you keep a table of active users for the db, setting and removing records during login/logout procedures. So, during your login procedure, if there's more than X number of records, let the user trying to log in know about it and close the app. hth -- Jack Leach "I haven''t failed, I''ve found ten thousand ways that don''t work.&quo...

Charting the relationship between two cells
Can you / How do you chart a the relationship between two cells (preferably without making two tables). It feels like this should be a simple function of excel. I want to see how a cell is effected when I put numbers 1-1,000,000 in it. For example, I have a worksheet that asks how many units I am managing. I put in that number in a single cell and my worksheet comes alive telling me how many people I need to have, how much space I need, etc, etc. But most importantly it shows me the bottom line profit. I want to chart the relationship between those two cells (number of units and pr...

Getting charts to automatically pick data from a series
Can I get a chart to always use say the last 9 values of a series? Does excel also do interactive charts? Salmonh: Yes you can have Excel chart the last 9, 30 or whatever number of values that you would like. You'll need to use dynamic range names to do this.

Graph not plotting what it should be plotting
I am having difficulty with Excel and was hoping someone could be of assistance. I am plotting a series of graphs with time on the x-axis and water level on the y-axis. The first set of graphs looks good. If you put the pointer over one of the points on the x-y scatter plot graph you see: "EW-5 Pump Test" Point "4321.00" (4321.00, 2445.04) 4321.00 is time in minutes and 2445.04 is the water level in feet.
