On a normal line chart...I want to have the horizontal (X) category axis on both the bottom AND the top of the chart. Can this be done? I can place the category axis on the top, or the bottom, but not both. Any advice?

Which came first: VisiCalc or Lotus 1-2-3?
Dan Bricklin and Bob Frankston debuted VisiCalc in 1979 as a Visible Calculator. Lotus 1-2-3 debuted in the early 1980's, from Mitch Kapor.

can be done but is a little circuitous. you need to set up a secondary y axis first, then go chart options | axis. select secondary X, deselect secondary Y

play about with it to see if you get wht you need - post back with details about what you're trying to plot if you need more,

All is complete! The chart uses 2 Y series having cumulative values over time (the X axis). Series A plots across time (X) to a 100% Y axis value. Series B shows progress by % over time in relation to series A. X category values (time) located on both top and bottom scales of the chart was requested for easier plot point identification. I used your advice, but I first created a duplicate series A (making it invisible) and used that to set up a secondary y axis, then go to chart options | axis. I then selected the secondary X and deselected secondary Y for the duplicate series A. This worked perfectly and I did it rather quickly. PaddyD you ARE the MVP!!! Thanks!
