    Charting dissimilar data types (2003)

    Is it possible to chart data types that uses different scales? I want to create a training spreadsheet that will contain three columns:
    A) Date
    [img]/forums/images/smilies/cool.gif[/img] Weight
    C) Time to complete run

    Ideally, it would be a line graph with dates along the bottom (X axis) with weight and time shown vertically (Y axis). I am thinking the scales (weight and time) could be on the left and right chart border, respectively.

    Is this possible? If so, how???

    Yes, you can set up a primary and secondary value axis. Each axis can have a different scale.
    - Create the chart.
    - Select one of the series.
    - Select Format | Selected Series...
    - Activate the Axis tab.
    - Click Secondary Axis.
    - Click OK.
    A new axis will appear on the right hand side of the chart. Excel will automatically adjust the scale of both axes, but you can set a custom scale if you prefer.
