How can I add a threashold line on a chart. For example, I have a bar chart which has all different kinds of values but none of the values go above 100. Yet I want to add a line that shows that the threashold is, say 500. What's the best way to do this on the run. What do I have to do in the spreadsheet, or where should I put this threashold value in the spreadsheet so I can use it on graph when I graph the other values? If this is not clear, let me know. I'll expand on this. thanks.

VLOOKUP to Left?
Use =VLOOKUP(A2,CHOOSE({1,2},$Z$1:$Z$99,$Y$1:$Y$99),2,False) to lookup Y values to left of Z values.

I think you just need to plot (as a line) another range in which all the values are 500.
