This is probably a basic question, but it's been aggravating me for an hour... I have to create a basic chart comparing 13 values. Excel won't let me select more than 12 on the worksheet I'm pulling the numbers from. Is there any way around this?

Thanks for your time.

Are you just pulling in arbitrary cells scattered about the sheet? This creates a very long series formula, where each point has a fully qualified address, including sheet name and cell address. When you get up to around 250 characters, Excel will not accept any more points. The best thing to do is put the values you want to plot into a contiguous range one row tall or one column wide.
