I have a chart pulling data from a table with a date/time field being used as the x-axis.

The table has the date/time in the following format: 7/26/07 15:00

However, the chart won't displaying the hour field correctly. It'll display the following: 7/26/07 0:00

I've tried changing every chart option I can think off, but can't get the time field to display correctly. This is a problem because we have several entries each day which are time stamped, but their getting all lumped onto the same date/time on the chart.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Thanks.

Does the VLOOKUP table have to be sorted?
No! when you are using an exact match, the VLOOKUP table can be in any order. Best-selling items at the top is actually the best.

Change from a line graph to an X/Y Scatter. The line graphs has a minimum scale of 1 day, but the x/y accepts fractional days.

Note that by formatting the data series you can achieve a graph which visually has a line, despite it being stored as an X/Y scatter, simply turn off the dots and turn on the lines in the Format Data series box.
