When building a chart Dates are been included that are not in thedate range

Sh0t2bts

Hi All,

I have this data that I am trying to put into a scatter chart, there
are 4 colums A-D starting at row 1 to 367 I have the date entered in
column A from 1st Jan 2008 to 31st Dec 2009 entered as = Date
(2008,01,01) in cell A2 and A3 onwards is =A2+3, A3+1 etc etc, the
other 3 columns is random data from those dates.

When I select all the data range and press F11 to create a chart it
looks fine but when I right click and select scatter chart with smooth
line I get an X axis starting November 2007, which isn't in the
range.

Any Ideas on what i'm doing wrong?

Kind Regards
Mark

It'll be because it's trying to put tick marks on the chart at round
numbers. Its first round number is39400, which is 14 Nov 07.

I wouldn't normally recommend changing from XY to line chart, but you might
find this helps. Change to line, then Chart Options/ Axes/ select
timescale, then Format Axis/ Scale and choose an appropriate tick mark
interval. But with line chart you won't be able to choose smoothed (but I
wouldn't normally choose smoothed anyway).
