    You can just set them up as categories in any of the chart types. Format it the way you want (hh:mm, etc). It does not need to be called a "timescale"

    Also you could use the XY (Scatter) chart. You can format it to hh:mm (or mm:ss or anything else) if desired if the values are in the serial time.

    The advantage of the XYScatter is that the data does NOT have to be spaced in regular intervals:
    For example if your X values are: 1, 2, 7, 22, 56, they will be equally spaced on all charts but the XYScatter.

    Hi Steve,

    I never look before today at the radio buttons on the dialog box "Chart Options" allowing me to choose "category".

    Till now I always left the default "Automatic" and was prisoneer of the time scale as my data were formatted as date...

    You saved me from this silly nightmare.

    Thanks again
