    plot 3 axis chart (2003)

    I have a Powerpower slide that a co-worker wants to duplicate in Excel so it can be manipulated with real data (see attached picture). I don't know the data values right now but I played around with a set of three series and couldn't find a chart type that looked like the sample. It has 3-axis and the idea is that the borders of the axis are zones which determine how acceptable the data is. I'll try and get some realistic sample data but wanted to see if anyone knows how this could be done.

    Thnx,
    Deb

    A radar chart has a vague resemblance, bur you can't manipulate the axes, and coloring the areas won't work.

    Yes I choose radar too as the closest match. I'll get more details about the problem tomorrow at work.

    How about an XY chart?

    Woooahh, that's perfect. You even worked on reverse engineering it and finding the numbers that approximate the picture I had!! <img src=/S/bravo.gif border=0 alt=bravo width=16 height=30>

    Thank you so much, I'm sure this will be very handy (the graph lets us show what data points are an some 'acceptable' performance range for a new product we're releasing).
