Hi!

I've created a blot of box and whiskers for 3 separate x-axis categories. I've followed instructions posted by Peltier here: Excel Box and Whisker Diagrams (Box Plots) - Peltier Tech Blog. Everything works fine until I go to great the "upper" error bar

Chart Tools > Layout > Error Bars > Direction: Plus, End Style: Cap > Custom: Specify Value > Negative Error Value: *SELECT ALL AND DELETE default ={1} and select range for (Max - Q3) values* - This is driving me batty - please help!

Negative Error Value must be cleared, and Positive Error Value must contain the range with the error bar values.

Oh goodness, that seems so obvious now. Thanks so much for the response - it worked perfectly!
