Hello,

I am working on a chart and was wondering if it is possible:

1. To change the color of the chart's background, only above a certain value? (i.e. above the value 100 on the Y-Axis, the background would be red, while below 100 it would still be gray).


or


2. To change the color of just one of the gridlines at a certain value on a line chart. (i.e. the gridline at the value 100 on the Y-Axis is red, while all of the other gridlines are still black).


Thanks for any help!
Keith
