Graph with 2 X axis - data series display limit?

Guest

Hi, I'm trying to graph one data series on an X axis against 5 other data
series plotted against a second X axis. The graph only displays 4 data
series - if I delete one series and add it again, the 'new' series is
displayed but one of the other series is not displayed. Is there a limit on
the no. of data series that can be displayed for this chart type? I can see
all data series in the source data part of the chart wizard but the chart
displays only 4 series....thanks for any advice....DavidC

Wel, you haven't told us which chart type, or which version of Excel, but
the limit on the number of data series in one chart is 255.

I'm not sure what you mean when you say you're "trying to graph one data
series on an X axis against 5 other data series plotted against a second X
axis."
I would expect that for each data series, you have an X axis and a Y axis.
If you wish you can choose a secondary Y axis and/or a secondary X axis for
one or more of the series.
Perhaps you can explain the layout of your data, and what series from the
data sheet you are using as the X and Y values for each of your 5 series,
and which of them are being displayed on secondary X and/or Y axes? Are you
sure that you haven't fixed your axis scale values so that you are trying to
plot beyond the range which you can see?

I hadn't stated which series to plot on which axis, clarifyng what to put on
the secondary axis worked. I normally find the answers I'm looking for in
existing posts without having to write a post, thanks for taking your time on
this...DavidC
