Hello,
I am trying to add a new series to an existing chart.
The chart is a stock chart.
I would like the new series to appear as dots, balls or squares on the existing chart.
When I go to add a new series I get a message 'the data range is too complicated to be displayed, if a new range
is selected it will replace all the series in the series panel'
And, sure enough it does and I have no chart (lucky I have plenty of back-ups)
Have inserted a picture below.
Would be grateful for some ideas if anyone has any
Thank you

Do you hate GETPIVOTDATA?
Prevent GETPIVOTDATA. Select inside a PivotTable. In the Analyze tab of the ribbon, open the dropown next to Options and turn it off

Hi,
A Stock Char needs data in a certain way and (as far as I know) it cannot be combined with other chart types. If the data you want to add does not follow these "rules", then what you described above happens.

Maybe you can share some data, using XL2BB for convenience, of the chart as is and the new series you want to add.

Hi,
Sorry, didn't understand what cross posting was. I thought I was not going to get any more replies as file workbook too large to upload.
