Hi,

Can anyone help me with this little dilemma...?

I have a list of data maybe 30 or so rows long which I need to show as a line chart, e.g.:

Paris 20 40 60 80
New York 20 40 40 80
Amsterdam 20 30 40 50

At the moment to display each row I need to manually change the source data but is there a short method to this? e.g. drop down and select New York?

Any help appreciated.
 

Excel Facts

Create a Pivot Table on a Map
If your data has zip codes, postal codes, or city names, select the data and use Insert, 3D Map. (Found to right of chart icons).
Hi Smythe 22 , Welcome To The Board,

Try running a pivot chart table to display your
desired results.

Base Numeric 1 Numeric 2 Numeric 3 Numeric 4
New York 20 20 20 40
Paris 10 20 30 50

Etc , etc , etc

Let me know how you get on !!!!!

Hope this helps !!!!

Thanks! - But no good!

I tried this, but (and perhaps because I'm not familier with pivot charts) I failed miserably.

My data is already in a povoted format... and as such pivoting again creates complications.

Thanks for your help all the same though...
