I would like to do a combo chart. Any ideas?
Plot all the data in a chart using the chart type you want to use for
most of the series. Select one series you want to change, choose Chart
Type from the Chart menu, and pick the chart type you want for this
series. Repeat for any other series you want to change.
Excel offers some built in combo types, but it's easy to make your own,
and you can be much more flexible this way.

and paste it into another graph so that I can avoind going through all

different combinations of the same data and have hundreds of curves to

"Go_Girl3647" <GoGirl3647@discussions.microsoft.com...Line Chart with dates in 5 day working week only
Trying to format a chart so that only the 5 working days of the week are
displayed on the x axis. The source data only has the five days (e.g.
05/09/2005 down to 09/09/2005 and then on to 12/09/2005 down to 16/09/2005
etc etc) So I have missed out the weekend dates.
When I create the line chart however, the weekend dates appear automatically
and just show no point on the chart, therefore there is a longer line between
Fridays and Mondays!!
Hope this makes sense.

Using Exc...Problem with charting Net income vs Year
Im having some problems with my Excel chart. It will not plot Net Income vs Year. It keeps trying to treat Year as a different data series. It will work if I use text i.e. a1990, a1991, etc. but it refuses to use 1990, 1991... Any Ideas???
Use an "XY (Scatter)" chart, instead of a "Line" chart.

As far as I know the 'default' print area is all the data, and once you have
changed the print area and saved the file you can not get it to go back to
the previous setting.
If you have problems with this or any other proceedure do try to remember to
save your file before you do the awkward bit and then you can go back to the
saved copy it it does not work.

The remote server requires that the xml contain no line breaks, but

How do I get rid of the line breaks? Can I do this with the

before handing it to the XmlTextWriter?
