combining two cell values to one value to chart

```Hello
While making a chart I wish to combine two values from two seperate cells to
make one value to send to a chart. In this case it is the values for the
columns named S3 and S4. Enclosed is the ss please refer to sheet 3. I don't
know the formula for adding the two and displaying.

It's a bit confusing this ss formatting. The S3 col are L and S4 is N. I
don't know if I have to make the calc show in a cell or just do it on the
fly. Using the chart wizard it's the series values I believe is where a
formula could go.

thanks for any help given,
Steve

```Sorry, looks like I can't do an attachment. That makes it hard.
The value for S3 is =Sheet3!\$L\$6:\$L\$8
and S4 is =Sheet3!\$N\$6:\$N\$8
I hope that's enough to go on.

```How do you want to "combine" the values? Sum? Average? Adjust the
formula in the cell that the chart uses for its data.

```thanks for the reply.
I wanted to add the two. A formula something like =data!(SUM(L6:N6)).
One issue is I have merged cells. The first cell to add is over L and M.
While the 2nd is over N and O. How do I get around this issue? thanks for any
help

```=SUM(data!L6:N6), but most users here would recommend avoiding merged cells

How to select series in chart?
I know I asked this question before, but (sigh) I cannot find the answer now, when I need it of course. How can I select a series in an Excel chart (XY Scatter) using the keyboard, not the mouse? The issue is: I have overlapping series, so it is difficult for me to select a series by moving the mouse cursor to a point in one series and right-clicking it, as I normally do. Someone once mentioned a ctrl and/or shift key combination (I think) that would allow me to select each series explicit in round-robin fashion. That is what I am looking for again. More generally, how could I have found...

transparent areas in charts?
How do you create transparent areas in imbedded charts? (for Excel 2003). When I click on "Format Chart area", then "Fill effects", there is a place where you can change the transparency settings, but it is faded out and will not work. Any Ideas?

OWA jumping mouse
