Is it a line? Can you click on it so that it has circles at each end? If do,
so that and press the Del kay.

I have a single line chart, with dates on the X axis. After a certain date,
I would like the line to be a different color. Is this possible? Without
having to edit the color of each datapoint? And when I add new data, it
should appear in that same second color. Thanks!
To do this without code you can use 2 data series to give the appearance
of a single line.
In this previous example I posted the future data was a dotted line but
you can just change the formatting to another colour.

...Auto adjust dates in a chart
I would like to build a line chart that automatically plots values for the
past 14 days, no matter when I open the chart.
I have set up a column with now() in the first cell and now()-1, now()-2,
etc. in a series for the following 13 cells down to now()-14. This column
becomes the data range for the x-axis.
If I test it by changing the system date, the now() values do not change
automatically. I know there must be a way to do that.
But the further concern is how to link values in another column with the
now()-x value to display what I want to see.

first then use that as the source data.
I have tried typically the following: Sheet1!$B$1+Sheet3!$b$1 and several
variations of this without success.
One way to do it is to have 2 series, one for each sheet, and make a Stacked
The only problem is that you don't get to see the total when adding labels

...Bar chart with Y Axes Categories
I have very little experience with charts, so I really appreciate your help.
I have a column of employees' "Years until retirement" (approx 139
employees). I'd like a chart that shows a bar for 0-5 years, 6-9 years,
10-14 years, 15-19 years, 20-24 years, 25-29 years and 30+.
How do I categorize to get this chart?
I think you want the categories on the X axis. In the first column of the
sheet, put your year ranges, and in the second column, put the number of
employees within each range. Make a chart from this data.

If you've added a new series, select the series, and press the Delete
